    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

    Yea i am looking at a couple of designs. I am talking with a waterjet guy here in town and trying to fab something up for way cheaper than $3,500 for just the rears :eek: plus i have yet to find a set for the little raptor everything i have found is for the 450 and up nothing for the small ones

    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?

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