I thought about mudlites for mine, likely next set of tires but having just bought the machine a week earlier I could not justify the fact they were so much more money.

way north Smokey

You must be way north of me, tracks in NJ would be useless at least 11 months a year. some years we never get a good snow cover. Tracks means Northen area and a work horse for an ATV!
I have been reading about tracks on the Can Am forum because I am ignorant being from NJ I have never seen one

i ride about 3 hours north of toronto ontario. not always enough snow up here either but i always wanted a set of tracks and when i found a used set for my exact atv model, i couldn't not buy them. havn't gotten a lot of use outta them but its one of those "whatever" things. i always wanted them so i bought them. if i don't use them, it sucks but they aren't eating anything sitting in the back of my shed either.

they are about the funest thing i've ever driven tho. all it takes is to watch some of Gunnys videos to realize the joy of tracking lol

Tracks go through some insane mud to. I was at a rally last year were less than half the quads made the half way point and there was an elderly man on a Polaris 700 with tracks who just casually cruised through the whole thing while everyone is just chomping through and winching and towing. It was crazy what they can go through.

Got a bumper from Kimplex put it on last night, F*** it said put the bracket on the bumper so I did them bolted the bumper to the quad, then couldn't put the top for the front box on. So I unbolt the bumper from the brackets put the box cover on, put the bumper back on and the lid won't open all the way.. WTF, well it looks really good so I am just gonna live with it.

It is difficult for me to change or mold atv by myself. You people are really expert in this field and depicts your love to your machines.
