Side By Side Skid Plates

May 07, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 221

If you have any serious off-roading plans for your UTV in the future, you will find that your undercarriage will take a beating. In fact, more than half of all non-maintenance factory replacement parts are along the bottom of the vehicle. Whether you're driving a Polaris Ranger, Yamaha Rhino, Kawaskai Teryx, Arctic Cat Prowler, or any other high performance side by side, chances are you're a-arms, steering linkage, CV, oil pan, or other high dollar item will be damaged on impact with the ground. There are literally dozens of options readily available on the market. We're here to help make your decision easier.

The number of materials available varies greatly, and of course, with increased cost you will find higher strength, and lighter weight. Keep these in mind when you're shopping your options and understand why your making the smartest purchase. For instance, if you're interested in doing some racing, in order to be competitive you might want a full coverage aircraft quality aluminum package. If you're just expecting to bottom out every once in a while and you want to keep noise to a minimum, hardened plastic A-arm covers may be all you need to protect the vehicle.

While we're on the subject of materials, let's explore some of the best options on the market. For your Polaris Ranger RZR, Ricochet offers high quality aluminum UTV skid plates made of both 5/32" and 3/16" Aircraft grade aluminum (that's what they make the skin of jumbo-jets with). They mount to your frame with thick steel clamps that won't be knocked off of your side by side on impact. Tusk offers a full-chassis skid plate that covers the middle of the chassis with 3/16" aluminum from front axle to rear axle for as little as $79.99. They also offer a full underside "quiet glide" kit made of UHMW that is quieter than aluminum when debris are being shot at your undercarriage by those big off-road mudders for 379.95. This is a great option if you like to talk to your passengers or hear your stereo over the madness of the road! UMHW is virtually unbreakable.

Pro Armor specializes in unique solutions for your vehicle, and their UTV skid plates consist of industry exclusive left and right skids that use more mounting points than other kits, and are engineered to overlap, giving your vehicle the most complete protection available.

Warn uses a similar system, opting to sell all of their pieces individually. As the top manufacturer of vehicle winches on the market for decades, these aluminum alloy plates feature intuitive engineering details like countersuck hardware to protect nuts and bolts from impact with the ground. Prices start at 119.95 and they have earned Warn's label: Body Armor.

You've spent too much on your UTV to let the ground destroy it doing the hard-core off-roading that you bought it for in the first place. Check out SBS parts for the best UTV skid plates available ant unbeatable prices!
