Im planning on getting some aluminum skids. Which one does everyone reccomend? I ride windrock a good bit and need some rock protection. I need a skid that will work with the tonys toys rock sliders.

Aluminum Products
There skids are nice and thick and have side protection that
rolls up over the sides. and they are priced much better than most others. 431114
and they fit perfect with proper holes to change fluids.

I took my aluminum skid off and I am installing one made out of UHMW. The aluminum skid was too loud and is very dented. In the rear my tranfer case was trying to push through or slowly grind through the aluminum.

I have no manufacturer though. I was able to get a sheet of 1/2" UHMW in a deal and will be cutting it out myself.

My Skids have no dents and have slid up and down the stair steps

Mine are 2 peace and have a folded joint thats bolted together.
they will not bend up on the trans.

I have been running Ricochet aluminum skid plates for years. No dents or rattles. Fit perfect and have provisions for changing fluids without unbolting the skids. They completely armor the bottom and A-arms. I also used them on other ATVs with great results.
