raise? you move the current bolts to different holes.
or are you meaning increase travel and you want to go to an extra 10?

start with finding an Xtra-10 133.5" skid and track. You can put that in with out changing the front.

Nice job, looks great. I picked up the same sled this year, going to do the same (sort of) after winter. Parts sled is a 96 xlt with xtra 12, did you have any issues with the front?

Ok, been a while, was too lazy to do it last year but I have finally did the mods to the spindles and bushing to mount my new plastics skis from 2010 IQ600 on the old XLT580. Had to machine about 90 thou off the spindle and bushing, bolted right on after that. Rubbers were a little tight but no worse than the metal ones. Brand new carbides, woohoo, can't wait...
