Great product. Hassle to install!
Works and looks great. Pain to install ! Some holes line up and some don’t. Was missing parts when it came in. Rocky Mountain did overnight them to me! Did not work with my rock sliders without fabrication of skid plate brackets. Frame brackets are next to impossible to install. Need a better design!

Great product. Disappointing packaging.
This is the second machine I have used the tusk skid plate on. The fitment is great and the product is very durable. One thing I was disappointed in was how it arrived. Packing was destroyed, loose bolts in the box, and the driver handed me a piece of the skid plate that had fallen out of the box while he was bringing it to my front porch. Luckily the skid plate is not fragile by any means.

You decide for yourself
When shopping for a skid plate the biggest reason I came back to Tusk was the price. It was almost $150 cheaper than the competitor and they were very similar at first glance. This skid plate has less pieces to install as compared to the competition. I found that to be more of a pain when trying to install it alone but I felt it would be stronger. As for quality, I think its great. My big complaint is that it didnt come with all the required hardware to install the main piece. Had to wait over a week to get the required brackets that werent even on the parts list but required per the instructions. The team at Rockymountain ATV took care of me but also acknowledged this is an issue with Tusk. Some of the holes on the rear of the main skid didnt line up either. I just re-drilled them. The metal pieces that wrap around the sides of the Rzr to hold the main skid plate on didnt have large enough holes to be able to mount my Polaris rock sliders back on the machine. This was mentioned in the description as a possibility before I purchased. I drilled the holes larger on teh brackets as seen in the picture and it all installed fine. Not sure why they cant just enlarge the holes from the factory as other customers have mentioned the same thing. My other issue is that it doesnt have any drain holes. So if I pull my plugs inside everything will just sit on top of the skid plate. Again, I drilled larger holes directly below my plugs to allow drainage. I also drilled holes to allow access to lube the bearings so I wouldnt have to take my center console out. With all the extra work I had to put into it I think I would of been better off with the competitor version. This seems like a really good skid plate and I have no doubt that it will do its job better than my factory plastic. I just think its geared more towards machines that ride in the desert or rocky conditions versus machines that ride trails and occasionally the mud/river beds only because the lack of drainage. If there is any real maintenance required other than oil changes I will have to take all of it off and then reinstall it versus a panel or two with the competitor's version. These are just different observations I noticed after I purchased/recieved the skid plate and really compared it to my friends from the competitor. Again, you make the call. Price and quality are great and I dont have any hard feelings towards Rockymountain ATV. They are a great company that I will do business with again. See you on the trails!

Other than having to have the Billet connector sent out because it wasn't in the packaging, everything else fit perfectly. Took it out for first time, and big difference in noise reduction. Great upgrade.

Good protection
Installed by myself in about 2 hrs, pretty straight forward and all hardware was included. Only problem I had with install was the rear plate, 4 holes did not line up on my 2018 RZR 1000 XP H.L. so I had to drill new holes (I suggest getting a better drill bit than the one they included) and there was a gap between the tiny front plate and the main plate, no way around that unless you want to redrill new mounting holes which I chose not too and yes I left ALL bolts loose until every bolt was started until the point in the included instructions that said certain factory reusable hardware could be tightened down. This skid plate kit does not cover the trailing arm mount and in my opinion SHOULD for the price $504 + tax.
This kit did work with my aftermarket rock sliders, it was noted it would not with the Polaris ones. There was NO hole for the grease zerk for the driveline next to the carrier bearing but there is for the oil drain plug and front diff drain plug. There is also a huge hole in the rear plate for nothing, the stock metal plate has a dip they cut out for but I can't see why they did that with the skid plate other than this plate is also for the Ranger model.
Another point I want to make is when the day comes and I have to replace u joints in the drive lines this skid plate will have to come off which will be a pita.
I have no doubt this will protect my machine well but I wouldn't recommend it for ease of servicing your machine in the future. It gets 4 stars because I did realize what I was getting before I purchased and it meets those expectations except for the misaligned holes in the rear plate, missing hole for the grease zerk and the pointless HUGE hole in the rear plate.

product protects well, installation directions needs refinement
The Quiet glide is performing well. The kit would easily earn a 5 star rating if the numerous fasteners were defined for specific uses. The appearance of the fasteners are very similar yet not interchangeable. Better clarification or separation in the bag might assist in the installation.

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.

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...
Is this Skid plate only 2 pieces? Our package was destroyed in shipping so want to be sure
CHRIS B on Mar 25, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Probably depends on what model your putting it on. My 2015 rzr900 trail has 3 pieces (1 large middle section, a smaller piece that lap joints to it ahead of the main piece between the a-arms and another small piece lap jointed behind the main between the rear a-arms. plus the hardware to mount it.
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.
