Default 93 storm project

i've got a 93 storm sks that i am going to do over the summer. i want to convert it to an xtra 10, or better if possible. i'm going to fab up my own trailing arms and radius rods out of 4130 chromoly. i want to at least have a 136" track cause i like riding powerlines, ditches, trails, and climbing hills. has anyone seen or know of a storm with a 144"? how hard would it be to put a 144"? try to get an rmk skid, or wouldn't that work? i'm going to widen the ski stance to i'm thinking 40". it's just the 38" stock now. any advice would be appreciated. thanks.

emerson stahl is out of hermantown, he has a ton of edge skids, simply find a 136 or 144 edge skid. make an extension after you have the rear skid picked out. then simply bolt on the tunnel extension. after going through what my little 128 track can do, and the other guys 136's the difference between 136 and 144 for traction, you might find a 136 to be a better choice for the weight and build of your sled. the little bit shorter track will make sidehilling and picking through trees a little easier, you can take any 121 skid out to 136, but to take a 121 out to 144 really changes out the skid works. there are tons of good used 136 tracks out there also.
for the front end, if you make it wide. then you might want to loose the trailing arm, if you keep in narrow you can keep the swaybar.
with the weight of the storm engine up front for sidehilling and playing around going without the sway bar wont be the worst thing in the world. plus it will drop 5 lbs.
