Personally, I'd stay away from the Xtra-12. Everyone I talk to says the 10 is a better overall design too.
That Phazer has a 121" track right? If so, I don't see why numerous skids won't work. Any skid, even one ten years old will be a major improvement. But ya, it can be a bit of a challenge finding a good deal. You don't want one that needs new wheels, hyfax, and shocks rebuilt. That would be pretty big money. I purchased a used Xtra 10 from a '99 XC700 with good Fox shocks, good wheels, but bad hyfax. I have $190 in it total.
There was nothing really difficult in the swap, you just want to take your time and not make any measuring mistakes. The rear Polaris mount was a bit wide for my Exciter II so I had it machined down a bit. Most guys would have just used a grinder. A warm place to work with a come-along winch from the ceiling, some steel backing plates and a bunch of rivets. That's pretty much it.
