Jacked Up Jet Sled

Postby MOduckMOfun » Mon Jan 28, 2013 2:29 pm

For anyone out there that uses a jet sled for hunting, have you ever considered adding wheels to it? Often times, when a boat won't do, it's nice to have a jet sled. But, it'd be nicer if it had wheels to haul it across dry areas/fields, etc. Has anyone seen plans for anything like this? I've seen carts that you can load a jet sled onto, but I'd rather just have the wheels attached.

wheels really struggle in mud and snow.. you will regret a permanent mounting of wheels

Agreed. I know they can get heavy. But adding wheels makes things a lot worse ... Mud, get hung up on sticks and weeds and stuff

I would put some dirt bike tires on it ,but when put a axle or bar extend it out from the side of the sled at least six inches to keep mud build up down .Also do not use fenders

Thanks guys. Fowlhabit4, I like your suggestion, although everyone else makes a good point about the mud. I just walked through a lot of dry areas this year dragging a jet sled and thought wheels may have come in handy. But I like the option of being able to have them on temporarily.
