I have been wanting a better skid plate system, and I want one that goes completly from the front to the rear with hole for the oil and diff drain plugs. I would like it to have something to put my winch hook onto to keep it from just hanging down (i have it hooked to the front rack right now and dont like that).

Does anyone have any suggestions on manufactures and some ideas on price for a setup like this?


Thanks for any input in this....

Marine as far as the hook goes, I took the nylon strap that comes with the winch and had my wife sew some hook & loop (velcroe) to it and I wrap it around the cross bar on the bumper. This holds the hook and keeps the strap from dragging in the dirt, when needed just peel it apart and you have the strap in hand to pull out the cable.

Marine,

Some guy on ebay (RSbody) sells them and he takes custom orders. Full skid plate set-up under $300.00 if I remember correctly.

DannyK,

Great idea for the hook! I wish I would have heard of this before I bought one of those D-rings. I have it attached to the front bumper with U-bolts and it works slick but I like the idea of the velcro on the strap even better.

Check out Aluminum Products once, they have a skid plate and hook holster combo or something like that they call it. The front plate wraps up the front bumper with a place to attatch your hook to. Aluminumproducts.com Me and my wife both have their fully belly skid and rear bash plate and they fit great.

Hey marine, check out prm skid plates at http://prm-atv.com/MN.asp?pg=products&grp=65&mfr=3 I had them on my warrior and beat them on the rubicon for years and never a problem. I put them on my grizz and love them. I don't think you can find a better plate. Bryan

Check out www.atvtires.com . They sell a product called Armoldillo that I have on my ATV. It is outstanding. I have beat it against rocks even at -20 and so far it just has scratches, It also lets the ATV slide over mud and snow much better than metal or stock skid plates. And the price is about 65-70 percent cheaper than most.

My condolences Marine, Hope your grandfather lived a long fufilling life.

Sailorman3, Those skidplates sound interesting. How much thicker than the stock units are they? Do you have any pics of them on your machine?

They are somewhere around a quarter of an inch thick. I will get some pictures in the next day or two and put them on the site. I am also in the process of installing a custom tow hook on the front. It will also be a place for the winch hook to hook on to. I will show pictures of that also.
