  1. Snowmobiling..... My dad bought our first sled during the blizzard of 67, from then on I was hooked. I saved my paper route money for what seemed like forever to purchase my own sled in 71. My one son is my riding partner and is into sleds just like me if not more. I used to collected vintage snowmobiles, but got out of that as I wanted to ride more than look at them, also when people started cloning and reproducing parts, it made the fun go away. During the summer we work on our sleds, mostly maintenance, we each have 2. We also each have a Sea Doo Spark PWC to pass the time away Other than that working on our place in northern Michigan, hope to retire there one of these years. Oh, and hockey. As you can tell we pretty much live for the winter. First pic - Sons and my sled (mine's on left) Second pic - 1975 Ski Doo RV245 Mod that I had. Also my handle on this and many other sites.
  2. It was a direct mailing to random individuals. Kind of like when you receive brochures from GM showing you current promotional offers. This particular one had a certificate number on it.
  3. Just picked up a 2020 Silverado RST CC. I tend to keep my vehicles for a long period of time like 10 years, traded in a 2010 HD2500, before that it was a 2000. Been doing the searching and researching and found some here in MIchigan. I was wondering if anyone had it done in Michigan and if so which installer did you use ? Were you happy with the outcome? Cost would be great? Did you do a partial, front end or full? Did you also do the ceramic coating? Pictures would be a plus. Thanks in advance
  4. Might you have them on your truck and if so is it possible to get a few pictures on them installed? Looking at them on the their website, they look sharp, just got their bed mat delivered yesterday
  5. I have a VP9, VP9sk, USP and just recently got a USPc, all 9mm. My favorite right now is the VP9sk, only do to the fact my wife staked claim on the USP, thus the reason for the USPc that she doesn't know I bought.
  6. I also have a VP9 and just picked up a VP9SK. The are great shooting pistols. Saving my coins for a P30.
  7. Just went out and looked all over again. It's not the plastic trim piece behind the door grab handles. That part is curved, this one is flat. Thanks for the help so far.
  8. I've hunted all over my truck to see where this goes. Son found it on the floor while using my truck one day. It has a number of 15298138 stamped om it. Did a search of the number and came up empty. The truck is a 2010 HD2500 with a center console if that matters. I put it this forum as I though it would get more hits. If needed to be more to the HD forum so be it. Thanks in advance
  9. The dealer we use has it so that the first 20 people that snocheck gets free delivery and setup, the next 20 get freight and setup for $200 and after that its $400, He was the first person to order this year. Last year I was the 18th.
  10. XRS Gade Silver/Orange. He was really looking at the 850's but with the track options along with the shock pkg's. He decided along with some help from me to get the XRS.. This is his first brand new sled. I didn't want him to spend more time working on a sled than riding. Nothing against the 850's, but you know how first year models go. Not only that he got a killer deal on it as he ordered it on the first day of sno check. He got like 2k off it.
  11. My sled (16 MXZx 1200) is just about ready to go. I did the oil & filter change along with the chaincase before putting her away for the summer. Also greased, washed, and waxed her. I always buy a cover for my sleds, keeps them cleaner. A week ago I put on the E-compact bag from Sled Solutions on it. I hate the looks of the Doo picnic baskets. I still have a few more things like adjusting the suspension and checking everything else. In the mean time, we're waiting for my son's sled to come in.
  12. Kinda of late, but love that sled. That would of been my choice, but I wanted a 4S.
  13. Well, the season is over except those in the high levels. Hope you did have a chance to ride. I only managed to get in about 500 miles with this crappy winter we had. I guess the good thing if you can call it that is my son snowchecked his first ever new sled. He ordered a 17 Gade XRS. We like the G4 chassis but there was a few things like shock and track choices that made him go towards the XS chassis. He didn't get the QA option.
