Well while at haydays I got a deal on this Edge X skid. Now that I have it I have to mount it into my Gen II sled. I looked on JBshocks website, and found the dimensions for an edge skid. I just want to make sure that these are the same as the edge X. Also JBSHocks list the center-to-center distances from the rear mounting hole to the front mounting hole as 613 mm. When I put this measurement on my skid as it sits now, my mounting holes are roughly 640 mm apart. So can I just loosen the amuminum bracket and push it forward until it reaces the correct dimensions?

Thanks for your help guys.

I also attached some pics of it. FOZ Zero Pro PS3 rear shock. Also anyhting i should look out for or do to this skid while i still have it out.

PS, I paid 300 bucks for it, does that sound like a good deal? All other ones like it were aroun 400 or above.

Main difference between Edge and EdgeX = decals

There should be some movement (front to rear) on the rear arm. I'm not sure what alum. brackets you are talking about loosening, but if it's the short alum. ones at the top of the rear swing arm - they are keyed so you are able to put them on in just one position.

Just thought of something. There is a short rocker/link at the front/bottom of the rear shock. It should be standing nearly straight up and down. If it's laying down horizontal, that's your problem......

you should be able to force the rear arm into postion where it will measure correctly. Remember that the TSL will rotate forward some as well. You will have no problem with my dimensions. Several guys have followed them. Feel free to call me if you have any questions.

Well I took the arms off my skid to get the yellow sand blasted and powder coated black. Hopefully I can order my track soon so I some weekend I can swap out the track and get thsi rear skid in. I also took the cover off of my front shock, and it is a rydeFX gas shock. When I pushed down on it with the arm it made a bubbling noise but still seemed to work. Should I think about looking into getting this rebuilt, or is it normal.

I would suggest rebuilding both shocks especially if you don't know about the miles on the skid. Its also best to start fresh with this type of swap so that you rule shocks out as an issue when setting up the sled.

I would send them out to JBShocks if I didnt have connections in my home town and can get them rebuilt for just the cost of materials. Also, I understand what is meant by the link under the rear shock, that is supposed to be straigh tup and down? Mine was a hole forward in that, should I move it back? Also, which holes on the front torque arm?

Thanks for the help.

Ok, I will do that then, I think I am also going to leave the shocks alone. Hopefully I will order my track today, and mabe it will make it here by the weekend.

I would go order a front torque arm from a 2000 600xc edge. That front torque arm will fit, comes in black and has the minor adjustments for the front limiter straps. The only problem is that it is around 130 bucks. The fine adjustment made it worth it for me.
Just some thoughts, not sure how much you want to spend.

You need to drill holes, you can't move the tsl to get it to line up if its too far off. If you do that the geometry will be off and if mounted wrong there will be no movement in the skid and will be solid.

Ya, I know that I will need to drill out the rivets, move the plates, drill new holes, and rerivit the plate back in. I just to see if I had to move that little piece of aluminum to make sure I had the right dimensions. I took my skid apart so I can powder coat it, so when I put it back together I will just set them in there so that they line up with JB's dimensions. Hopefully I will be doing this this weekend. I ordered ny track from tracksusa this morning, so hopefully I will have the powdercoat back and my track by this weekend so I can start this.

Does anyone know if the shocks off the XTRA 10 are the same length as the shocks in the Edge skid?
Thanks, this is an informative post
