What chassis do you have? I've put the F7 Arctic Cat cooler/ grip plates on two 98 t-cats with some slight modification and they were around 35 USD for the set. I do not know if you can still get them or not?

Could you post a picture of how you have yours mounted on your running boards and let me see there here it is Sno Stuff Traction Strips universal 3/8th high pyramid design price 25.10 per 20 those? and a picture of how to place would be great roughly....

When I fabricated my custom tunnel I added the coolant strips found on Polaris sleds. I like those cause they melt the snow around them Then in my tunnel sides I drilled holes about an inch in diameter and then heated the aluminum up really hot and took a hammer and something like a socket a milimeter or so larger than the hole and hammered the hole up so that it created a sort of grip that also lets snow or water etc out. . A couple other things I've done in the past is installed that rivet on plastic grip you can buy in different colors and that works rather well. Another thing I've done on tunnels I've built is the same principal as the hole and hammer thing I do only something like you see on SkiDoo Revs where they make a raised claw like grip in the tunnel. That too isn't all that hard to do. But for simplicity those rivet style grips with the bumps that hold onto your boots are great

I have Sno Slip edge roll grips and Sno Grip plates for mine but removed the plates now and just run the edge roll grips. My boots fit better in the boards without the plates.

You can make your own for cheap if you have a length of square tubing, drill and something like a bandsaw.

I cut out quite a few a while back and am waiting to finish my sled to install them. They look very similar to those Cat ones, cost a fraction of the price, and are bare aluminum... oh and don't have the cat logo cut out.
