Winter Ride!

Well, took my xtx back into the hunt camp this weekend with all the old boys. there are 6 kodiaks and 1 sportsman out there. Once again all the old guys were totally amazed with where the utv's can go. brought a chainsaw with us but never needed to use it. there was about 14" of snow on the trails and tons of water/ice holes. I never got stuck once!! my favourite part about the prowler is how you can just paw thru mud holes like they arent even there. what a great machine!! there are a couple things that im worried about tho. like this time i decided to put the buggy in the back of my truck instead of a trailer. only broke my tail light on the truck while putting it in before we left, unloading when we got there was easy, but loading the thing to come home was a nightmare!!! ruined 2 sets of ramps!!! also, too much ice forms in the inside of the rims causing the entire machine to be frozen solid, takes alot of poking and pouring hot water on things to get it freed up, and this morning, i broke my rear axle trying to get it to move. think i need a heated shop! lol

Which axle did you break? Give Scott a call at CV Retoration and tell him Seth from Prolwer talk sent you. He should be able to help you out. Really cool guy and he goes out of his way for me.
