Hi all,

I'm pretty new to sleds. This year I bought an almost-mint 2004 Classic that the wife will use to to hit the trails. However, I was assuming I'd easily be able to get a Seat Jack for it so that we could take guests for short rides once in a a while but that doesn't seem to be the case :/

I normally don't make assumptions, but this time I did, and it looks like there isn't a Seat Jack made for these models as far as I can tell?

If that is the case, I'll likely end up having to pick up a 3rd 2up snowmobile just so guests can ride with us a couple times a season... I need an extra sled as much as I need a hole in the head lol :wall:

So, I'm hoping someone here can point out a Seat Jack I missed OR I'd even be open to creating a Seat HACK from a different model if that is possible. I'm not sure as I haven't seen a Jack Seat in person. ANY tips here would be greatly welcome! Thank you

They do and I had the part number, I’ll look it up and post it. I have same sled and found the part number but I can’t find it in stock anywhere. Does yours have the seat with moveable back rest and euro looking tail lights?

Thank you very much, I found that one too and starting doing a dance, but that sled while very similar, is not the same where it matters.

The attached sled is not exactly mine, but the seat/tunnel is all the same and this pic shows the problem. I think the issue is probably the way the tunnel angles up at the back of the sled, that ruins the normal mounting spot I think?? My other concern is perhaps the hump is too tall?

This sled was pretty inexpensive so I'm happy to mod it whatever way would work to pull this off. I suppose if I can't find another I'll be ordering this hoping to find an obvious way to mod the connection. I'll be out shipping fees if it doesn't work but I guess that's not the end of the world...

I'm just very disappointed. I found two great sleds, pulled the trigger (for once!) thinking one of the coolest parts of this was not having 2ups since we don't have guests for anything but short rides. But we do definitely want to take guests, and as my luck would have it, only one has an available seat jack! :blink:

I also saw a Seat Adapter for a Ski-doo, which was just a strap on seat that goes over the hump. I wanted a seat jack so my guests would feel secure, but I could consider doing something like that and when we have guests, I'll be the one that rides on it so everyone else gets a normal seat. That kinda stinks though.


Any an all ideas still welcome! :)

Ah yes your 2004 is different then mine, mine has the seat with removeable butt rest that gives you a flat mounting surface. I’ll keep an eye out.

I bought that same seat jack to put on my Dad's 2002 edge 700. It is not correct but it does work. I have to compress the back of the seat a bit. The kicked up tunnel is not an issue as all Edge sleds have that. I don't know for use that you can do the same on the 2004 but I bet you can.
