    Skid plates

    I ordered a set of front and back skid plates for my 08 rhino. I ordered some made out of fancy plastic can't remember the name I got some 3/8" thick the one I took off are the stock plastic they have lasted quite awhile but are buggerd up pretty good. Has anyone tried the new high molecule plastic ones and how have they worked?

    I have had trail armor 3/8" skidplates on my rhino since 2 weeks after I bought it. They have been in plenty of mountain rocky riding and while they have a bunch of marks, they are still together well. They also help in the snow as it slides across it easier.

    I ordered mine from factory utv they had 3/8" and 1/2" the half inch seemed over kill . I usually only hit bottom in moab when all four of us are in it and in real bad stuff. with the 2" lift and 26" tires I never have an issue on normal trails but going through deep snowdrifts easier will help.

    I'm running the 3/8 factory utv on my X4. They are an excellent product.

    I got the skid plates in the mail today and put them on .I'm impressed with how they look. they're twice as thick and stiff as the factory front and back plastic skids .I'm glad I only ordered the 3/8" thick ones the 1/2" thick would be over kill.

    I thought the same thing. I wouldn't want to ride with someone who could tear the 1/2" ones up.
