Well project 121"-144" Extension on the INDY 550 is complete. Took me about 8-9hrs total and had my Best Buddy helping with the modification to his sled. He was in the garage with me last night after Hockey from 10pm-1am and again today.
1st thing he said is Test ride tomorrow in the powder

How does the Extension perform in the Powder, are the lugs the standard 1.3?

It's a noticeable improvement over the 121" skid.
I took it for a few rips and was impressed for a 550 how well
it did.
Now I wouldn't go High Marking with it but it works very well in a few feet of powder.
I put a Cobra 1.352" lug track on it.

Thanks for the response. I'm looking at a 2015 Indy with 144" track and wanting it to get up my drive ( nasty hill) as well as break local trail. This hasn't been easy with what I currnelty have although not the driver most of you guys are. Nonetheless, based on this as well as one other response I think this sled can do what I need without considering a larger Lug Height.

EDIT: there's actually 800+ miles on the machine with that Polaris decal
On it.
Div20 thinking hard about putting one on my Indy, because I hate the boot scuffed tunnel I have in 1,100 miles.

I just bought the same sled in the 121 and was thinking about extending the tunnel to put a 2 up seat on so my kiddo can ride with me from time to time. Which kit did you use? I want to make sure I order the correct one if I go that route. I know I should have just bought the voyager or adventure, but didn't have the cash up front for a 2up.

Tracks USA. I am Putting that sled back to a 136 and will be selling the rail and Tunnell extension if you’re interested. But installing a 2-up seat has no bearing on what length the skid is.

I know, just trying to figure out what seat configuration will work. Don't have many options I don't think. Everything I look at on the polaris site says it doesn't fit my machine. I thought by extending the tunnel I may have more options.
