Swappin 04 GTX for 06 RXT
Maybe you guys can give me some quick advice. I gotta 04 GTX SC in storage with new engine but 150 hrs. I'm thinking about swappin it in for an unused 06 RXT. There are plenty of new 07s to trade too. But, I like the 06 color better and need to save bucks where I can. So, what terms should I negotiate? Current list is 10,500 on 07 rxt and 10,000 for 06. 04 gtx worth 6K retail? Already have trailer. This would be a 2nd ski for guests or back up. Thanks.

I have ridden 2 06 RXT and they felt a lot different than the 07. The narrower handlebars of the 06 drove me nuts.
Colors; I prefer the red/white over the black/gold or black/yellow.
There were some posts late last season that RXT were goig for 9200 (if I recall correctly).
Regardless of the ski you buy get the SC washers changed immediately

Still not sure of the swap value of my 04. Will check and search but any thought will be appreciated as I may need to close deal tomorrow.
I know the RXT pretty well so I'm not worried about the bars. Will swap washers if deal goes through.
Dont really want to spend the dough but it makes no sense to have 04 in storage losing value and if I can trade right I'll come out ahead.

Gray and burgundy I wouldnot have to spent too much time thinking about it. with the money I saved I would pick up the umi handle bar set up and call it good.

Yeah, I like the understated color. I think 06 rxt msrp was 11, 500. So, maybe $9,500 in 08.
04 gtxsc $6000 retail?

Oh boy, out comes the chick in me.
I don't care what price you have something if its not the color I want I am not gonna buy it. Now if you have the color I want and it is a little more money its a done deal.
I like those colors as much as the red/white.
The Blue GTX is sharp.
Never like the black skis too hard to see on the water.
X base color is sharp it's the rust color accent that I say yuck to.

Actually I think the grey hulls are harder to see on the water.
Are you sure that's not an 05? Ours are 2006 RXT's and they did not offer that grey hull color here in central florida in 2006 as I recall they all had black hulls in 2006 around here. Could have been just our area, not sure.
Blue 182, do you still have the Ultra 250?

I'm pretty sure that grey hull was 2005.
