Nice work. Nice sled, it looks familiar. I see you utilized the quick pins for your rack. I put 12v plug in same spot and wired direct to battery. Wired in fuse and inline connector plug by factory connector plug if you have to remove console.

I also installed the Cat front bumper with the receiver. I plan on buying an ATV winch and rigging it up myself.....plus the options are almost limitless as to what a guy can fab up to put in that reciever. I can see a small gas grill up there for the occasional lunch on the ice!! Lol.

I see you removed pintle hitch. I was wondering what to do cause I have winter campers and sleighs that only have swivel type hitches. I didn't want to convert all of them, so I made a quick connector that fits on sleigh hitches with their pins, and connects to pintle setup.

I have nothing that takes a pintle hitch. I bought the Cat flipper type hitch. It's well built.

First time I went out and still in break-in mode, I ran into very deep snow in the ditches. It floated pretty good but it was a little bit of a workout to get out of the ditch and up each bank. I was conservative in the throttle too though.

I've got a board that the size of the open tunnel I utilize as a table or filleting board. It fits in there snug.

Digger auger rack if you ever get sick of moving your auger to get into your box on the back. Nice rig. Did the power port with power cord for the GPS the same. Visor plug is on the left side of handle bar bags. Also in the process of studding since we no longer get snow in MN.
