Seen your sled there the other day. Looked great. I have him extending my deck. He does nice work
He was looking at my Denali sled deck and had mentioned he was extending a sled deck similar to mine. Denali sled decks get slammed... but mine has been great and has plenty of upgrades.

So fun fact if anyone is doing this. A 1/2” NPT thread fits perfectly into the coolant bottle and threads in tight. Can get easy 16psi to test.

It was pretty getto getting it upside down. But make welding a million times easier. These tunnels are thin and don’t like to be welded in the first place do to glycol.

I wonder if my SmithGrade rear bumper would fit if I knocked off 5"

Does it really make that much difference to how the sled acts in the snow?

Absolutely, it makes it much easier to do re-entries, bowties and mainly Hop overs. You don't realize how much the tunnel acts as a big wheelie bar till you try a sled with a short tunnel!
