Well the fun beginns today. Start putting a extra 12 in to the Storm. Not going to be easy, but well worth it on the comfort side of things. Take the jack shafts outta her and do all new bearings,taking the chain/gear case off for easy of fab work, and cause i wanna, i will take pictures as i go, and when done she will have new pic on the front yard!!! Then i will start on the RXL
some how, dont know why im thinking ur jobs for summer are little better than mine, bitch of a time to have to quit drinking PBR an GJD, it just aint right, oh well, water,lemonade and the ol lady pissn an moaing about dirty greasy foot prints on the trashed carpet should keep me entertained hahahahaha....and i quit smoking 2months ago, what the fuck was i thinking
If it makes you feel better, my sled was just a belly pan and tunnel from about June until Dec. 8th or so. Didn't have it running until the day before a ride, did some tweaking and took it up the UP the 18th.

you got it MrSnowman, im going to do both together i think, that way i keep my sanity. started more tear down and part ordering today, i order from dealer and when i buy shit ie clothing helmets ext they usually deal with me very decently and dont gouge me like some of the freakn morons around here. im fixing to go measure the trailing arms on the RXL right now. i may change those over tonite.
does anyone know where there are some 133.5 rails for a extra 12 or anyone that machines after market rails? hey Mud do u have a title for the RXL tunnel?? Got a idea in the back of my mind. turnin the RXL chasis into a low lean grass an ice dragg sled. it will be a race only sledd. I might be able to get a old school Aaen race motor for under 800 and the old boy will be my tuner an teach me while at it. just ideas that might work out!!!
Well the motor is outta pinky, she skid less also. tomorrow before dr appt it will be trailing arm less also. measuring the mounts out aint going to be that hard. shit easy compared to putting in a new floor in a trunk of a 68 Satelite or generic Road Runner for those who are Mopar lacking!!!! Thank God for the chasis of the XLT, ohhhh does anyone need heat exchangers for floor boards or front of tunnel, if u live with in driving distance, there yours if u come an romove the shit your self. happy early Christmas fuckers hahahahaha, the belly pan is good and the tunnel is good. First come first serve!!!!! How do i down load pictures of the storm in various state of building on the site from my blackberry? Thanks yall, not one broken knucke or bloody one this time, fuckn shockn!!!
Anyways - I may want those coolers. Problem is that you're 3 hours away. Damn.
To upload pics you need to sign in to the forum on it, and click the paperclip. It's identical to uploading from the site. It may be easier to email yourself the pics then upload them from a computer.
shit brother, u come and get them, they are FREE FREE YES I SAID FREE, u can justify the gas spent by not having to buy them, ur choice, do u want all three or just side exchangers? If i take them off and ship? ? ? 30 plus shipping, u think thats fair, not trying to gouge, gotta buy grinding wheels and im not out to rape anyone on price. If u ride and work on your own, that goes a long way with me, just like when i rode bikes, no repect for a stroke who wont or cant work on his own. just the way i was raised. Besides who wants to pay 65-75 an hour for a tech to do what i can do
Hey Bry, depending on when i sell my Indy Trail 440, i will be making a trip out that way after parts. i can drop them off, if ya dont need them real badly right away. Cost ya thoooooo. Did u want all three or just floor boards or tunnel??
Ice Age, MX86?? I talked to those guys at West Yellowstone. They said to make rails for an out of date sled would cost at least $500 bones or clams. I think that's a little too much for my tastes. Tastes may differ though...??
I heard the Haydays Swap Meet sucked royal ballsack this year. You can't even get Ice Age Rails for an Edge the last few years. I've been looking. They just ain't out there. Good luck with an Xtra 12. Can you even get a 133.5" track anymore?
i called tracks usa and they told me to buy extensions cause u cant get new 133.5 any more period, they quit making them. so the storm and rxl will be 136s. maybe storm 121 for next year then buy a new track and picks for year after that. the rx will be a 136 this year for sure. w/xtra 10 with extensions....was dissapointed that they dont make tracks in 133 any longer, still a fair amount of them out there i thought??
