    wide ski skins, 12 volt power plug, tall windsheild, some kind of tow hitch, heated rear hand warmers, a back up light, I just added a heated seat now that would be nice.

    If you can afford it, have them custom build a pull start back up under the cowling. I did that on mine and it saved my bacon a few times.

    My skins I can't tell you. They were an option I guess the factory ones. One thing I wish I gotten is snow to run it on...… Still not enough in Valdez to run it. 3 miles on it in 1 1/2 years.

    Hillary moved to NY and I moved out.

    Warn portable winch that you can attach front/rear/or sides. It is small and has literally saved my bacon when buried. Great little winch for the not-so-light sleds!

    I mounted a 2500lb. Winch on mine with a hand switch and a 25' remote.

    The reason I mention the portable one is the ability to anchor it to multiple points. I had to pull my VK rear up to the side to get out of a very deep rutted area-was unusual! Lol. I have ability to use it on both sleds, both Grizzly’s, and Ranger. Yet we have front mounted winches on the wheeled toys. Just more assurance that isn’t expensive- mine is a 1700lb and I keep snatch block handy. Hope y’all get some riding in soon.

    All good suggestion as long as you don't over load the battery charging system and can not get the snowmobile started.

    Back behind the battery there is plenty of room to add another battery. Which i will do if i am using the winch to any extent.

    Adding a 2nd battery may not increase the total battery capacity over time, unless it is done correctly. Now is the time to do your homework.

    My portable is a Warn XT1700
    The mechanic at Big Lake Yamaha is the one who recommended it as he uses one when he is collecting firewood in winter. He told me I would use it, and sure enough- as usual he was right. I carry extra rope and keep more survival gear on rides than I hope to ever need, but the winch is seriously a save-your-butt piece of equipment. When we were riding old Tundra's they were light enough to move around when stuck. Our present sleds are heavy and it seems that snow conditions where we ride have changed as well. The winch comes with a handy case about the size of a lunch box and simply connects to plug ins and you connect the winch to securing straps and use the hand held remote. To be honest I also keep a come along with 100' rope under the seat as well (just in case).
