    Snowshoe lives up to its name! The v6 with stock gearing is perfect for the tracks. I do have a slight problem, the body starts to bounce around and makes driving rather interesting.... Guess it might be time to fix the floors. :rolleyes:

    I mounted up the 8274 Warn today and wired that up. I put switches on the dash too for the winch.

    That's real nice.

    I want to know how hard it is to get stuck.

    More importantly, what will pull it out?

    I was out in the 18" of snow we just got and it didn't even feel like the snow was there. The only way I can see it getting stuck is if there is only a couple inches of snow on glare ice and the snow just slides away.

    The winch will pull it out.

    I was digging through my parts bin and found this JEEP grille badge.

    And then I dug out our vintage Alaskan bobsled that my grandparents friends brought back in the 60s. I remember riding on the back of it as a kid while my dad towed it with his snowmobile. My sister would ride inside it along with a cooler. We would go in the woods and cook hotdogs over an open fire. I would like to fix it up and use it more now.
