If so, how do you like them? Are there a lot of drain holes, any holes too large for their purpose? Is the oil drain accessible? I don't care if it is, I'd rather have more coverage.

Thanks in advance, trying to decide on the skids I want for my RZR.

Yes... 1/2" FUTV skid. I smash it on lots of jagged rocks and trees. Very durable. One of the best investments I have made. Worth the investment if that is the kind of riding you do.

+1 for the FUTV skids, they are bombproof and I think they are the best skids on the market.

My only feedback on them,which I have told to FUTV as well, is that there needs to be more drain holes in the main skid IMO. I ride in Az and the amount of dirt/dust that accumulates on top(closest to the frame) of the skid when it is mounted is substantial. I can only imagine what the guys who are mudders have to deal with. Power washing doesn't get it all out by any means, you have to drop/remove the skid to remove the 5-10 lbs of accumulated dirt. The differential covers could also stand to be mounted better both front and back. As it is, they are a pain in the ass to mount and could be mounted much easier/better with a simple change in the mounting points

The .5'' skids are great but they do add alot of weight to the machine. The best way to clean the skids is to stand the machine up. I use my skidsteer but a chain hoist or cumalong and a tree work too.

So once it's up in the air, do you just flood the front of the panel with open running hose without a nozzle, or blast it out with a nozzle under high pressure? And that really cleans it well? I end up in some nasty slop sometimes that is unavoidable. Hate cleaning out lbs. of mud from belly pans, but it needs to be done.
