I like the uhmw no rattle, slides over rocks. I went 1/2 inch which is alittle over kill 3/8 would be plenty good. the factoryutv skids have great coverage.

I have the aluminum Trailogic front and rear skids. They are badass! T-6 6061 aluminum.

Baja and Alpine Loop proven( by me)! I have hit obstacles and thought that had to dent it, nope, maybe a scratch!

I have been researchin this a little and for uhmw trail armor looks pretty good coverage wise and there 1/2 inch thick and provide some side bar coverage. aluminum ricochet looks good.

I seen these trail armours at a local dealer and they looked nice prolly 3/8 thick. I like the "wings" that come out under the doors too they could help you slide over some stuff

They do look good. But, how much debris do you think will get trapped above them... A hundred lbs??? Half a day to r&r clean. Lots of snag points to..

guess it depends on how you ride... all skid plates are goin to catch debri and mud... I try to steer clear of mud... just throwing some options out there.. Im not to the point of buying any yet... I mean right now my engine isnt even in my rhino lol

I was a huge fan of the plastic on my Grizzly but I'm rethinking that on the weight of the Rhino. Here is a pic of what I did to my factory bash guard 2 days ago. I ordered an aluminum PRM bash plate today to try out.

I just seen this on the Internet for the first time 2 days ago and thank they look really nice my only question is about the area that sticks out to the sides will it allow for full doors to open ?

Can't see for sure in your picture if your foot area is covered or not, but don't forget to add the floor guards. Could save your jewels among other things. I do like the plastic, it will probably trap quite a bit of extra dirt between the skid plate and OEM floor. Its worth it if the extra cleaning does't bother you.
