Alright, well, ride #1 with new skid plate is done. So far, I am very pleased with it. I hit FAR FAR FAR LESS rocks than I did the the other model, that is for sure. I didn't really smash into any at speed, so the durability is still yet to be seen. They (pro armor people) tell me that it is heat treated which their first model wasn't. Install went without a hitch and it looks pretty good. Sure glad to have that valley in there. I will keep you all posted to see if it can handle the rocks around these parts, or if it will crumple, just like the old one.

I have the old style for over a year now and it sure drags on everything. Sand and snow is the worst but I have also been stuck in some of the most lame places simply because I got hung up on my low hanging skid. I need a new skid and would sell this old low boy to anyone who wants it. What is a good, plenty of clearance model? I like the idea of the tow strap hole on the pro Armor and I have Pro Armor on the rest of my bike but the PRM look like good skids too. Any input here? Thanks! :O

Seems pricey at $141. Does the skid plate include the shock/linkage skid also?????? That would seem better.
Cheers

its everything, though pricy, consider it as a one time purchase. I guarantee that if their stuff can survive what I ride, it will survive whatever you ride.....

anyone use this skid plate?.. i'm looking at ordering 2. one for me and one for my buddy. i like it because it comes with the linkage skidplate and it has the tow hook spot on the back.. i can get this for 120 from my dealer. i only have the stock plastic crap on there now and its not gonna hold up much longer. :dunno

the pro armor one is 1/4" thick also. i like the pro armor b/c it comes w/ the linkage guard and has a tow hook slot. i think its worth the extra 20 bux for the proarmor cuz it comes with the linkage guard.

PRM also covers the linkage.

I love the new Pro Armor skid but the tow hole is to close to the swing arm for the hook to go through. I can hook to the V weld on the under side but got to be very careful not to bounce around and knock it loose. Anyone else have this problem? If so is there an easy fix other than a gas axe and the BFH.
