2011 RZR 800 S LE Skid Plate Options
Hello everyone. I'm new here and this is my first thread but I'm hoping someone can give me some solid advice. I have a new 800 S LE and I'm considering which Skid Plate and A-Arm Guards to put on it. I know the UHMW A-Arm Guards from Factory UTV seem like a good option, but I'm not sure what to expect from them being one solid piece of plastic. It seems like mud and gunk could get stuck up against my A Arm Guards and cause them to rust if I'm not careful. Has anyone had that problem? I'm thinking the EMP steel ones might be better because they are grated and will let sand and mud fall through them easier?
As far as the skid plate goes I'm thinking 1/2 inch Factory UTV but I'm thinking the Trail Armor skid plate might be a better option. I wonder if the holes on the Trail Armor skid plate might catch on things I'm sliding over so I don't know which is best. I already have factory rock sliders and I'm not sure if the full Trail armor skid plate will fit with the factor ones on. I'm going to have to write Trail Armor and ask them.
As far as front and rear bumpers go I went with EMP and got the rear tire mount bumper. I think that should work really great. I also want to get the Rotopax first aid kit, 4 gallon fuel and water tanks, a first aid kit, and a tire repair kit.
After that, I should be good to go!
Thanks for any advice anyone can offer. It would help a lot.
