I have a Renegade X on order and am thinking of swapping out the track with a Ripsaw 2.  The dealer offered to do it for $600 and keeping the new takeoff.  The last track I swapped was on a 2004 Adrenaline.  I am certainly capable but cannot find any videos on how to deal with the QAS system.  Does anyone know of any good videos?  If I buy the track myself it is about $500 and If I do it myself I can sell the takeoff to offset some of the cost. 

 

If the QAS makes it a major pain I can just let the dealer do it but I need to know how difficult it is. 

 

Thoughts?

 

Thanks.

 

Dan

Do it yourself. If you have done one previously you can do it with QAS.

Do a search here and you will find a step by step thread. I used that the first time.

Do yourself a favor and buy the tool for the upper rear mount. It was like $8 or something, otherwise you will have to grind down a wrench.

I drilled out one of the rivets that hold the plate under the QAS on each side instead of both, then slid it out of the way to feed the adjuster through. Reinstalled with a bolt and thread lock.

I'm glad I did it that way cause I had a warranty issue with the track and had to remove it at the end of the season.

In the picture you can see the rivet was left in to the rear of the hole and I drilled out the front one.

If you have taken the suspension out of a sled already I see no reason you can not take the suspension out of the QA>>>https://www.dootalk....t-skid-removal/  Here is a small topic on the removal>>>>

 

I have removed the shocks so it would be not much different>>>>Biggest thing is to get the adjusters through the holes in the running boards>>>

If the $600 includes the track that sounds fair. Those tracks are around $600  and your take off is only worth $300 or so.....sounds pretty fair.

Yes it does include the track and I agree it is fair.  I do pretty much all my own work usually so I just wanted to get a feeling for how hard it was to do the swap.  I was thinking hydraulic lines had to be opened and then there would be bleeding to get the air out but it doesn't sound like that is the case.  Surprised I haven't been able to find a video on You Tube.

 I have done 4-5 of these and they are not real hard just a bit of a pain! If you have the time and your not rushed and you don't mind selling the used part and the shipping of the used part....then it's worth doing yourself.

I did mine last year without it. It is very difficult to do without using a hammer which can potentially damage the bearing. The brake removal tool is worth the investment imo.

Another thing to keep in mind is the Clutch side bearing bracket on the inside of the tunnel has to be turned a few degrees for it to unlock from the tunnel after you get the 4 bolts out of it
