There are two different tunnel protectors made for my sled, # 860201280  and  # 860201693

The difference between these 2 tunnel protectors is the front and mid protector is included with one kit and the other is just the rear protector.  My 2021 came with the front protector pre-installed.

 

Question:  DO I need the middle protector?  I'm afraid dropping the track is beyond my comfort level to install the mid section.

Any words of wisdom would be greatly appreciated.

 

I'm installing Grip Stds 1610 on my pre-drilled track, very easy.  A 154 requires 196 studs.

Also burned away all the fuzz and the track looks much better; this past season there were small snowballs hanging on the the treads.

I like those studs because the carbides aren't pointed. Pointed ones quickly round off leaving less to wear and grab, plus they are nice and short. How much for a hundred?

$250 for 200, which included the install tool and shipping.  $60 for tunnel protector.

$1.25 each, nice but I think I will stick with my concrete screws.

Those are some good looking alternatives to the auto stud.

Now I’m wishing I had ordered the tunnel protectors.

Auto studs are wimpy nubs for cars. If they are set to the right depth (not that easy) only the tiny carbide tip is supposed to extend above the surface. The only good thing about them is that you can plunk them in in no time if you have the gun and they are dirt cheap which is probably why the factory offers that service.
