hows that formula treating you? I am eyeballing one that is for sale.
I ran the crap out of it last winter. Never gave me a problem. It came with the house I bought so I haven't had it but one season. I like it. I'm not a huge sledder and not really interested in the whole sled world so I don't need anything fancy. We like to tour trails and see stuff. It's plenty fast enough for me, quiet and has electric start and reverse. Full studded track also. It's comfortable enough to ride all day.

fully insulated, pioneer head unit, four pioneer 6x9's, tinted side window, 3 spd fantastic fan, roof vent cover, all birch wood work inside, heat, ac,
complete 110v and 12v electrical systems, 80a progressive dynamics charger converter, lifted 1.75 inches, porch light, and a flip down birch countertop.

i still need aluminum rims, slightly taller tires, coat the underside of the wood, and caulk all the seams.

i have camped in it a few times now. gonna be a really tight fit with my apex,
two 121 track sleds barely fit, now i have a 136 track.

i can pull it with my lj, wj, or super duty. it pulls pretty good. bring my honda generator along and im good to camp at any trailhead free.

going to put the trailer up on stands today, and coat the underside to preserve the wood.
gonna insulate the floors with 2" closed cell foam also. still wonder if the 136 track is gonna fit inside with another sled.

I did a post forward kit, converted to a two wheel inside the rails axle and made a flex edge track.

How do you like the 154?? I was going to shoot for a new 137 free ride or back country. Still haven't decided. I'd like to find a left over freeride. New ones are ugly. What kinda riding do you do mostly with it?
