Default what a bad week

sorry for the rant, need to blow off some steam, it has been a rough week....

wel to start my truck needed my truck needed a new wheel bearing, having never done this my buddy helped me do this, somewhere in the process somethign went wrong and I never knew until i went for an alignment....... i think one of the 3 bolts crossthreaded.... so trying to save money didnt pay off, so I bought another wheel bearing (another 250 bucks, 500 in total now) just paying to have that done on monday as I dont have access to the hoist we used last week.... both lower ball joints were toast so the same day I was supposed to get an alignment I had the shop repair those... so I was without a truck all weekend......

Finally got enough snow to ride here (have 2 feet now) trails are nice, went out yesterday and part way through the trip I blow a rear track shock apart, landed off a bump pretty hard but not hard enough to do this (i thought), my bnuddy landed the same and nothing wrong... the shocks I have (i thought again) are top of the line..... so just as the season got going here im down and out until I can get a new one......... so the truck cost me 1000 bucks that I didnt really plan on and the sled will be another 400 or so unless they warranty it.......... I know shit happens, I just had to blow of some steam.......... heres the shock

good thing we carry a roll of red, green....




sorry fellas...... maybe next week will be better...

Wow! That just sucks! Hopefully the sled repair will be considered warranty so you don't have that financial kick in the ---- as well.

thanks Brad, the manufacturer will warran ty it but I have to send it to Cali and wont have it back for 3 weeks due to shipping time, plus I am going to mexico around that time so it will be a over a month until I get sledding. Going to see what Polaris will do for me, if worse comes to worse it will be 200 bucks to have it rebuilt. On the plus side I got my truck back today after it has been gone since thursday, feels so good to have it back, anmd the wheel bearing change cost me half of what I thought it would!!

ya deffinetly a bummer at the beginning of the season (season is really late this year) but i guess you gotta pay to play. I got my truck back today so that is great news. My goodies wont be in until the end of this week or beginning of next. 1 thing is coming from texas, I paid for it on Jan. 10th and it only got sent out on friday the other thing will only take a day to get! I will deffinetly be posting some pics when I get them

Well, this sounds slightly less gloomy. I bet the lower cost on the truck repair was a welcome surprise. Was the shock considered an OEM part when you bought the sled? If so, you should be able to have this taken care of much quicker. I'd figure the sled manufacturers would trip over themselves to keep you going so you'll buy another one from them. It's not like the season is 8 months long, and this year is shaping up to be the shortest on record.

I was deffinetly happy about the reapir costs being lower! but Just got a call from my sled dealer and no go on Polaris coming good on this shock, it is not really an oem brand shock, a different company makes the shock, they would give me warranty on it but the shipping would be 2-3 weeks round trip, so I am sending it out tmrw and paying to have it redone... gotta pay to play lol 1 month ago Polaris would have warrantied it........

This season has started off terribly, maybe is I have to go back to Thompson manitoba for a while I will take the sled with me, from what I was told when I was there this summer their winters are long. I hope I dont have to go back there though haha
