For the price of a jet sledxl 65.00 It will save you the hassle of building one. And you'll save alot of xtra weight.

raleigh,

Glad to hear you finished your sled, cool!

Your pictures are not showing. Have you read numbers seven through ten at:

If it's _still_ not working for you, go ahead and try another site like you said.  :'(

Let us know how it works. I have been contemplating this too. This late in the season my Ranger is too heavy to take out so I always wish I had something lighter.

Well I took it out yesterday and it works great. It just glides accross the snow and ice, but I did build it out of half inch plywood so it is a little heavy going up steep hill's. But i am happy with the way it turned out. It is better than the little orange sled I was using. You could fit just about anything in this new sled you wanted except an ice shanty.

I built a box that is 24x24x48 using 2x3 studs and 3/8" plywood. I mounted this box on top of a pair of old water ski's. I can fit chairs, radio, 10 tilts, tackle, cooler and food with no problem at all. I am building a bracket on the side to hold the auger upright.
