My order of preference for rocks....

UHMV
Steel
Aluminum

Aluminum is stickies on rocks...will gouge...pro...weight
Steel..slides the best but heavy...weight sucks

The plastic will gouge, but it slides good too. It is tough as hell, I have been using it for years on my rock buggies.

It's funny you posted this because I just finished sending an email to Eva from Factory UTV. I inquired about getting a quote for everything you just listed.

I requested a quote for: 3/8" skid, A-arm guards, their new rock sliders, and the gas tank protector.

The only problem I have is that I live in Nova Scotia, Canada. Eva said they would ship to me but i'm a little scared to find out what my shipping expenses would be as well as brokerage fees and crap like that.

I got the 1/2" skid, S a-arm guards, and gas tank protector shipped up to Alberta for around 800 bucks everything(including brokerage and shipping) Well worth it. Awesome product.

definitely uhmw from futv. you will be hard pressed to gouge it. i have run the entire belly over sharp rocks with all the weight on the skid and it barely even scratches it.

my new 3/8" futv rockers showed up tonight. they will replace the polaris rockers in the morning

Love my HOLZ skid. Could not have been more happy with the fit, finish of the Kit. Shipped very fast and looks great. Kit looks the best and get the rockers below and up on the sides. VERY nice kit.

I too like my Holz skids UHMW in center Aluminum on the sides and over the front and rear diffs.
They look good and work well, I also have the Thunderhawk gas tank skid out of aluminum seems that most skids I have seen like my Holz do not cover the rear of the gas tank.

I have full aluminum including a-arm guards and gas tank protector.

I have never had a problem sliding over rocks and like the feeling of security that if I bottom out hard on anything my skid will not yield. There is very little clearnace between the skid and import parts.

I have heard lots of good stuff about the UHMW, probably would have gone that route but my rzr came with the skids when I bought it used.

I run EMP'S UHMW and Cooter browns A-arm protectors and I just went on a rock trail that was effing brutal.

Lost my passenger front A-arm protector and drivers side fender flare rubbed off all but two fasteners I feel the A-arm protector did its job.

The UHMW 3/8 PLASTIC SKID WAS THE BALLS AND SAVED MY RAZOR FROM MUCH DAMAGE.
