I’m looking to convert my 2018 zr8000 129 to 137 Track
what all do I need

Not really. I have a 129 in a 2018 and there is little to no difference in the ride and handling between the two. A grand total of 4" and one bar on the snow difference. You really cant feel the difference and as far as ski lift, neither of my sleds do much. I prefer it that way though. 129's are going to be a thing of the past. The hand writing is on the wall already.Seeing how textron dumped the 129, you could be sitting on a gold mine, so to speak. Personally I like the 129's ( I have 2 of them) they still have that "fun" factor of being ale to lift the ski's over a jump and sliding around a corner if you want to. The 137's are planted and the overall ride is better for sure. If you ride rough trails all the time, a 137 is a better choice. But, if the trails are taken care of ( groomed regularly ) the 129 is still a great sled. Keep in mind that if you modify the 129, it will drop in value come selling time. I wouldn't touch 129 to 137 conversation sled with a 39 and half foot pole.

My 129 does ride great as isMaybe we should discuss how to get your 129 to ride better? My 8000 is a 2015 with the dreaded fox float 3's . Sold those in favor of LXR front shocks and never looked back. Also upgraded the rear coil spring to the 2016 specs for the 129 ( yours should have that stock) A few tweaks and maybe a shock rebuild and maybe your 129 will ride like a dream. Last ride of last year I rode my wife's '16 LXR 6000. If I closed my eyes I couldnt tell which sled I was on. They rode the same, very nice. Mine is a snow pro or was a SP. Only difference between the 2 sleds are the rear shocks, hers are ACT, mine are fox. We rode over some spaced out moguls for about 1.5 miles. I passed a renegade( 120 inch track) sitting down. He was standing because it was so rough. I was going at least 7 mph faster and was comfortable. For what its worth, he sold that sled after that ride. Bought a 137 doo, but was planning on the 129 doo blizzard. The 137 was more affordable is why. I'll let you know how that one rides, we are going up in a few days. FWIW, I had my fox floats rebuilt to ride better by a reputable shock guy ( name with held) He messed them up so bad I hated that sled. Dumped those shocks and bought brand new take-offs from an LXR. One of the biggest mistakes made are messing with the suspension to get a sled to turn. If done incorrectly, it will turn better but ride worse.
Ok I called them yesterday and got some prices togetherJust make sure when you order it call them on the phone sleds require a longer axel for back wheels and buy a 2 ply track not 1 ply
