Skid pan loose

Question... do I dare use a couple of self tapping screws to remount my skid pan where it has been torn lose. Or is it a bad idea to put small holes in the frame. I have a 2009- 800. Thanks for any replies.

You'll be fine using small self tapping screws...

Best thing would be to buy a new 3/8" skid plate... The OEM Cover (mistakenly called a skid plate) is for show not for go...

Re: Skid pan loose

If you hit that toy skid cover (I like that term Tim) hard enough to tear it, then you need a real skip plate. I recommend the Factory UTV plate and rock sliders. Worth every penny.

The only connection I have to Factory UTV is as a satisfied customer.
