This skid plate is a pain to install for the wildcat XX. You must remove the floorboards for proper installation. Total install time was about 6 hours by myself. For the price it’s had to beat but I wish I would have paid more money for another brand that allowed easier install.

Tusk Quiet-Glide Skid Plate
This product has excellent performance. Only issue is installing the front-half of the main section, which took quite a bit of time on my 4-seater. However, it is worth the extra work because this skid plate provides fantastic coverage. The 4-seater scrapes frequently due to the longer wheelbase and I never worry about damage to the underside. Highly recommend this product over the metal skid plates.

Very good product
First I will say after reading other reviews, this product is very easy to install. Yes a couple holes don’t line up just right, but all you need to do is drill the factory cup washers to a little bigger diameter and all is well. You could also take a router with proper bit and make it work that way.
A few things I would like to se different.
1- make the side fasteners compatible with the Polaris tube rock sliders. I will modify accordingly and make the sliders work but could be changed slightly from factory with no issues to anything else.
2- the front skid could be longer and the cut to length as required as an option? With my front bumper I have added a 12” piece from of uhmw to help “glide” up rocks or mud banks. Believe me it made a huge difference!
3- the seam where the engine plate and front flame meet need t be reinforced. When out rock crawling I bent the frame section where the driveline hoop fastens to. If they made a sub plate to fit under the two “glide” plates would make a big difference. The factory plastic seems to be more rigid which reinforces this section of the frame where the uhmw just “conforms”. But don’t get me wrong the overall design is so much better than stock. I have been a mechanic for over 30 years, so I am always trying to make things better!
One thing rest assured is that RMATVMC is one of the best companies out there. The you tube videos and instructions are some of the best out there on the web.
Also, this is so easy to remove and install, I bent my rear drive shaft and had the baton plates off and driveshaft out in less than 30 mins.

Tusk skid plate
I was not sure about this at first. I wanted a steel one. They talked me into this one. I am very satisfied. I have drug the bottom so many times and bottomed out so much. It has held up great. It just glides over the rocks with no problems and still looks good.

A Quality product at very competitive price.
Having bought several skid pans from a major competitor for Polaris's, I was expecting to buy another when I came across the Tusk UHMW skid pan. The competitor had just the rear section for a Can Am X3 for a few dollars less than I paid for the compete 3 piece Tusk pan. I was very pleasantly surprised when I got it. It has several improvements over the competitors. It fit perfect, and was easy to install. Totally recessing the entire cup washer and the use of 5/16" bolts to attach it is a big improvement over any I have previously purchased, The kit even included several pieces of metal to improve the finished product.

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.

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
Does this have all the holes to change oil and access to change the belt holes?
Louis C on Feb 9, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I have both changed the belt and the oil on my rzr900 trail. I don't remember for sure but I don't think it had a hole to grease the front driveshaft. I drilled a hole in the bottom of 1 of the cup holders even before I installed this skid plate and just plug it with a small plastic plug. Far easier even with the stock skid plate to grease it looking down thru the cup holder then up from the bottom.
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 fit with Polaris low profile rock sliders?
SHERI W on Nov 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi Sheri! I don't know, it fits the RZR 1000 Turbo and the 1000 but the side attachments do go over the mounts for the rick sliders, you would have to have both products to see if you could get them to fit. The skid plate works great, I've used it in the rocks and it worked great, I love the protection os gives to my RZR. Sorry for not having the best answer for you question, but like me a lot of this is trial and error, hopefully on the cheaper side of these items.
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.
