Well. Not sure about the body swap. I've said before that I am not a fan on hood or body swaps. All that Poulan stuff might make it look like the beast that it really is. Then again I haven't seen the Gutbrod stuff your talking about so It doesn't really matter what I say. I don't see the need for reinforcements if you're not going over crazy hills and rocks. Pulling things and pushing snow wouldn't need reinforcements. Just sayin'.

There you go! Slap some paint over the rust, and it disappears. lol!.

I'd be more concerned about that tranny blowing than I would be about looks, but that's just me.

It'll be fine. The murray in the Profile pic has a really cheap hydro that is pully swapped and considering the damage it takes from being speed up I abuse it about as hard as I can.

He's talking about plowing with it and stuff. I'm fairly certain it won't work for that.

Wow that does look good. But I don't see it going on the AYP. I think they both look good the way they are, just my opinion. Wait, does that AWS on the hood mean All Wheel Steer?

I think the hydro will be fine for hard work unless you pulley swap it. But you probably have more sense than that (and I obviously don't). Mine pulled a couple hundred pounds of rock uphill before I pulley swapped it.

Yes I know but I don't care.

Well hey, It's your build and if you want to swap it over go right ahead.

Runs real smooth! Wish my V-twins would stop surging and run like that.

Man, that's like the stock idle on an oppy. Still sounds good though. Isn't that exhaust blowing directly in your face?
