The new skid before it went in. Basically what I did was take a complete 136" skid from a Pantera, remove nearly all the parts, replaced with new rear arms from Cat's coupling kit, and the front arms and all shocks from the 121" skid. The arms were black, I gave them a couple fresh coats of Cat green paint.

I really like how the C&A skis brightened up the front of the sled. Hope I also like how they perform. If I would have kept the black skis, I was going to paint the A-arms green to add a little color to this area, but I think the skis are just right.

Also added an external antenna for the GPS. It's sitting on top of the gauges near the windshield. I'm just going to put it there with velcro. Boy.....does this thing make a world of difference. It receives signals from about 4 different sattelites even sitting in a closed garage. With the original antenna, it wouldn't receive a signal at all in the garage. Hmmmm, maybe I'm sitting on my sled in the garage too much.....NO WAY!!!!!!!!!

Nice job Jim, looks like alot of work. (but worth it) My riding partner has the green t-cat and put on a chrome green windshield. I think that would be the finishing touch on your sled. That would brighten it up some more.

I should recognize that sled if I see it this year.
