great looking rig .... I always wanted to ride a snow sled but never have , I figure I'm too big for the lil things and would have a very bad day trying to fold up that small ... where to put a 6'7" heavy duty frame on them would be my issue lol .. leg length room alone doesn't look all that inviting

name is Gary or hey you if ya forget

2009 Prowler XTZ , couple things added here and there
'83 CJ7 / SBC + whole lot added here and there
'01 Dodge / Cummins / Dually, a ton of stuff added here and there

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE NEWBIES ...
1. Bring in a good load of firewood for the pit
2. start the morning coffee , strong but not burnt / boiled down , IMPORTANT start it early as many of us old farts get up early !!
3. sit a spell and swap some lies with the best of us

Anyone put tracks on a prowler? I see em out there. Got my unit a few weeks ago and was hoping to ride some. Unfortunately we have been getting snow in the valleys and I'm already rubbing bottom. If they weren't so darn spendy. Just got the wife talked into buying the machine so I probably won't have much luck convincing her to spend another $4000-$5000.

if you want 4 season use of your rig tracks are a must , my ex-neighbor in Coeur d'Alene has a set that I lusted over .. he rode years around and had a ball "wheeling" with the snowmobiles in heavy deep N. Idaho snow .. I rode his rig and fell in love vowing to have a set, but now I'm in Reno Nv area not enough snow to spend the $$ [at least yet ] .. closest deep snow will be the Sierra's ..

IMHO with tracks a fellow needs a ride partner for sure .. be nothing worse than getting way back in and a break down , be like the guy in Jeramaya Johnson [sp? a movie with Robert Redford] where he finds the Sharps 50 Cal. in the frozen mans hands LOL ... Na I don't want to be critter food.

Tracks are nice, but my love for outdoors during the winter is fast losing ground! Cost of tracks offset any appeal for me! LOL

Garage
I've seen a lot of videos of people using them in mud also, we don't get enough snow to justify the cost either.

The rigs I saw were very impressive, couple of shots on you tube also! If I lived in the upper peninsula I would have a set. I'd rather ride the Prowler than a snowmobile!

I almost have the wife talked in to them to go look for wolf tracks and get some winter scenery pictures etc to keep active in winter. However, winter is a bad bad bad time to be stuck by yourself in the mountains even with a good winter survival kit. Also trying to talk next door neighbor into getting tracks for his rzr. then it is not so bad.
