Not impressed
Installing was a pain. Not all counter sunk holes were actually counter sunk enough to protect the bolts. Where the main and rear skids came together was not a smooth transition and I feel it will get damaged in the right situation.

Quite gluide skid plate on RZR 570EPS Trail
This is a very significant improvement over the OEM skid plates.
The OEM center piece was around 1/8-3/16 inch thick and very flimsy. The aluminum covering the engine etc. was already dented and showed some damage so this is a very effective upgrade plus it tied into my front skid plate/bumper with no difficulty.
I had my Polaris dealer put it on, only took them 1/2 hour and cost me $60.
They were very impressed with the fitment and the final application saying this was the best skid plate they had seen. Very good recommendation from experienced poeple.

Worth the buy, wont be disappointed. Stock is no comparison.
This skid plate is super nice. I love the Tusk engraving on it and it's nice and thick. You can tell it's a very good quality product. It was a bit of a chore to get installed but used a jack and a friends help and got it knocked out.
Had to divert a bit from the instructions as I have tree kicker nerf bars on my RZR so I had to put the side metal rails on first then attach them to the actual skid plate so I could tighten the nerf bars down. This worked pretty well.
Looking forward to testing this out in a couple weeks as were6going to Moab, super excited and happy with this upgrade to protect my machine.

Can you supply a hardware as I have none?
christopher c on Aug 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Were you missing the hardware when you received the skid plate from us?
how much does it weigh for a 2015 rzr xp 1000?
NATHAN O on Oct 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It weighs about 43 pounds with all the hardware.
does the skid plate come with all hardware for instillation?
A shopper on Aug 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes. I purchased one of the first to hit market and it has everything you need to install. Requires a couple extra holes to be drilled and self tap screws(both included), but mainly uses factory bolt pattern. Much thicker than stock, but I installed alone...
Is there a hole to drain the oil? The stock skid plate has a hole to drain the oil, but from the pictures, it looks like there is no drain hole on this skid plate. Am I just not seeing it? I'd hate to have to take it off just to change the oil.
Don R on Oct 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The picture is just generic. this is probably a picture of a different RZR that has the hole somewhere else. this does have a drain hole.
Has anyone had an issue with the predrilled holes not matching up with the vehicle? Tried to install the skid plate on a 2016 1000 razor 4 seater and not all of the predrilled holes matched up. After several conversations with Rocky Mountain on the location of the holes the skid plate was pulled of and sent back. Rocky mountain checked the hole locations and said the were correctly located.
Rick S on Oct 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No issue with mine, but did have to struggle getting it on the frist time. I am sure u did this put when putting the screws in only barely put them in so you have room to adjust it for the other holes. I am sure not much help but trying
Will this skid plate work with Polaris low profile rock sliders on a 2017 XP1000 4 seater?
Bobby B on Apr 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I don't know if it will work with the rock sliders. The skid plate wraps up from below the side rails (below front/rear doors) and is somewhat designed to act as a rock slide protection. Obviously it doesn't extend up the side as highl as the LP rock sliders. The SP mounting brackets on the sides are bulky so i don't think it will allow you to mount the sliders over. I wonder if you could find a way to use your sliders in lieu of the skid plate brackets. Also, the skid plate has been a great investment. I will say i have a 2016. The front and middle sections bolt right up. I had to do some customizing on the rear piece. They must have changed the motor cage. The bolt pattern was off. I had to drill new holes. Fortunately the section is small. Check with RM atv to see if they have a 2016-2017 SP. good luck.
ARe these skid plates lighter than aluminum?
A shopper on Nov 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I would think they are slightly heavier, but the question should really be, are they more or less durable? My RZR is not lifted so I can get it into an enclosed trailer, which means my skid plate is used often in the woods to crawl over logs and in the gravel over rocks. It slides over these things easily and never dents, unlike aluminum. I had read the reviews on blogs and almost everyone touted the advantages of this material over metal and from my experience, I would agree that it is durable, slippery over obstacles and for me, light enough.
Has anyone drilled out holes for the floor pan drains or is it a non issue? Seems like you would want to as I always flush sticks, leaves, etc down them. I don't want to ever have to remove it just to clean or change fluids. I know how the bolts get jacked up on skid plates so removing them is a real pita
KURT W on Oct 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Have aCommander easy to install drain holes were done. Access to clutch cover bolts was also taken care of nicely. Far exceeds factory plate. Rocks ... slide right over! Richard Arizona/Canada dual extreme riding
Looks like this skid covers just about everything. So I was wondering how are people securing it to their trailers? I currently use the frame underneath just behind front wheels and in front of rear wheels but I think these will be covered. Was thinking of getting some tire bonnets anyway but wondered if there are other options with the skid plate.
KURT W on Oct 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I attach the rear to the "Tusk UTV Rear Bumper, Cargo Rack, & Spare titer carrier" on the rack below the spare tire.

I attach the front to an upper frame channel behind the front shocks.

In AZ the skid plate is extremely beneficial when riding in the desert washes and washed out tails. i would not be without it.
Does this skid plate require a lot of drilling? I'm looking at getting one for a 2018 XPT and don't want to have to drill into the frame that much.
Lee R on Mar 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I installed mine on my 2015 Polaris RZR4K. Minimal drilling is one reason I purchased this skid pan kit. I off-road in California, Arizona and Utah. This skid plate works awesome. Hope this helps, Tracy.
Does this skid plate wrap up over the front of the lower frame near the firewall/footwell? It looked like it did in the video. If so, will this fit with and footwell/firewall guard plate like the McNasty footwell guards?
Jacob J on Sep 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It does wrap up by the fram, if this interfears with your footwell guards the skid plate can be trimmed or heated to meet your needs. This is a good product that can be modified to meet your specific needs.
Will this skid plate work with the Holz racing nerf bar that use the side body screw to bolt them on to the machine? 2016 XP turbo.
Michelle G on Apr 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I ordered this skid plate and it is the best I can imagine... very straight forward assembly, all the hardware etc... Also it's quite and don;t vibrate like AL. We took it to Rocky trials of Arkansas last week and though it took a beating it did it's job! 5 Stars! As for will it work with other nerf bars etc... This is just as the pictures and covers more than the factory skid plate. so you will have to look at the picture and know how your nerf bars mount.. BUt keep in mind this Skid Plate covers almost the ENTIRE bottom of your machine...
will this work with Vendetta rock sliders? 2018 1000XP
Keith L on Jul 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I had the flush polaris rock sliders, i had to drill ne holes and use self taping screws to make it work. I think if you are handy enough you can make anything fit but the skid plate is not rock slider friendly
Has anyone installed this on an Arctic Cat Wildcat? Just curious about fit and finish and how it compares to the stock skid plate (drain plug access and water drainage). Thanks in advance!
Cameron A on Feb 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I didn't have any problems installing mine. Drain lines are pre drilled and spot on location wise. My suggestion is to jack the car up on one side front and back. That will give you easy access to all of your fasteners points. Install your first few screws on each panel loosely. That will allow better joint overlap at each panel as you proceed with installation. Lastly, be careful not to overtorque the screws. I snapped one off, it was tough backing it out. Piece of cake job.

Has anyone installed this on a 2017 RZR XP 1000? Catalog only shows it for a 2016.
Mitchell R on Oct 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it should fit the 2017 XP 1000. I checked the OEM skid plate numbers and they are the same for 2016 and 2017.
You have listed that this fits a 2016 Polaris RZR 900S, will this also fit the 2016 1000S also? And will this skid plate fit with Polaris Low Profile rock sliders?
Brooks T on Aug 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately this will not work on the 1000 S model.
Is there a way to purchase just one steel side frame for this skid plate? Thank you
