Skids!
 
Looking for some serious under body protection. Been looking around and it looks like an oil pan skid, evap can skid, and a front skid combined will do the trick. What do you guys think? Anybody have any skids that really do the trick (brands etc)

Thanks :punk:

Have the skidrow tramission skid. I've managed to bend it in Drummond Island and Rock and Valleys ORV park such that I've started to get vibration at certain RPMs.. So now am planning on taking it out and going for something more beefier.. Might have a friend fabricate something for me..

How did it hold up till then? Would you say it can withstand normal offroading light rocks mud etc without the heavy rocks/climbing?

It should hold but its can pita when it comes time to clean the mud. Also look into the clearance with the exhaust and driveline.. It very close and you'll have to add a couple more washers to maintain some kind of clearance. I'm have vibrations because I managed to bend the crossmember too.. So now am looking to modify that and get new skids..

I have the Rock Hard Oil Pan skid. Seems to do the job very well.

I have the Skidrow on mine- very medium duty. Briana's has the River Raider setup- definitely heavy duty. However, on a day-to-day note, when changing oil, the RR makes a mess, and the Skidrow doesn't :)
RR is thicker, and stouter all around. Skidrow gets dinged up pretty easily. If I had to do it again, I'd switch ours around- Mark W.

I cant seem to find any site for the RR skids. I found their site which is useless but quad and 4x4 dont sell em I dont think :(

thaduke2003 05-20-2010 11:20 AM

No, because Kenny won't sell out to the big name stores. His site isn't useless. Call him up and talk to him. He's a good guy- he'll take care of you- Mark W.

blaster199 05-20-2010 11:39 AM

Sounds good. Im guessing kenny is the owner?

thaduke2003 05-20-2010 01:43 PM

Yep- as I said, he's a good guy- he's almost always busy, but he'll answer your questions- Mark W.

blaster199 05-20-2010 01:48 PM

K how do the RRs run price wise compared to the rest?

thaduke2003 05-20-2010 01:51 PM

There are cheaper skids, but not better for the money, in my opinion- Mark W.

blaster199 05-20-2010 02:48 PM

Alright that sounds good. I'll give him a call tomorrow
