A better picture of the rack I built. 
Just some stock, and some welding....and some MadDog gun holders (for the auger)
and some MadDog bucket holders (mounting bracket cut off and welded to the rack,
and some black paint.  The base fits tightly to my sled basket.  I just use U bolts to
attach it.

I searched back and found an old post of mine about this subject.

Here's some pictures of some racks, most are my buddy's sleds. They used pipe couplings or tube steel and split them to make "U" brackets for the augers to set in, then bungeed them down. The racks also hold our bait buckets.



This guy mounted is auger blade vertically on the side of his sled, but it's pretty scary looking.


I don't have an auger mount on my sled this year. I have a dog sled for fishing near the house.



Hard to beat an Otter sled for hauling in snow.


Hope this gives you a few ideas for the up coming season.

I added a cover to my jet sled last year.  Made it out of 1/4 plywood, and put a few coats of marine epoxy on it.  More than doubled the carrying capacity of my sled.   Doubles as a wind break.  Also works as a table.  Doesn't add much weight.  If I were to do it over though, I'd make the sides 9" instead of the 12" that they are.

I've learned quite a few tricks from Pegasus, and that's just one of them.
It's also used to keep track of which traps are active....

FishMe -

What is your box made out of?
Ever been tempted to stand it on end and use it as a shelter?  I know I have with mine.

here is our set-up.....we strap the auger over the top....



then we hang the auger on the shanty, and are able to open up the inside....



since these pics were taken, we added taller runners and bolted down-hill skis to them....
ICE TO THE TOP PLEASE!!!.....
