New Ski-Wheeler mod

So me and my step-dad got board and figured we should get the 4-wheeler ready for snow. So we got a old pair of snowmobile ski's and fabed up a bracket system so i could quickly change the tires to ski's. Next is to figure out a track system for the back. Any input on the track system is more than welcome. Enjoy


so here is the actual prototype that we came up with

I thought about that but from talking to my buddy who has paddles he said they just dont hook up that great in the snow. the snow is to fluffy and light compared to sand

There's a full blown sport model with skis in the front and tracks in the back already made. It's pretty awesome!

How about just some oversized balloon tires, fairly deep lugged with a set of chains?

Montana Ski-Wheeler

Ok So after a few months of R&D we were able to build a set of tracks. Check out our kid version. I will post pics after they get out of paint

Awesome! Did you buy the tracks and adapt it to the back of the 4-wheeler or did you make the whole system?
