I need skids..What is best?

Well, I tried to search , but I didnt find anything but arguements on what Skids are best. I need to get some real soon . I just want some that dont rattle & are thick enough, light enough to last.

What would guys reccommend? or have?

What thickness do I need .160 or .190? I assume if I am getting them, I should get front, rear , And Frame all at same time?

.190 is the heavy duty.. I just run the frame skid... I'm thinking of getting some for the rear arms though.. It's up to you and the condition of the trails you ride

do you run the HD ones? I dont really like the a-arm skids. I think I will just start with frame? Thanks!

I run the PRM .190 as well, full skid, I dont have the arms. It is holding up superb, it is pretty light weight even though it was the thickest one out there when I bought mine, and it doesn't rattle at all. Just tight up the bolts really good, and check them after rides. It was a bit of a pain to put on with the PRM front bumper I use (bumper more so than the skid) but overall wasn't bad. Def get your money's worth.

2008 700xx; Power Bomb header with power core 4 exhaust, Power Programmer III, pro armor nerfs, prm products control front and rear bumpers and full skid, 10" ITP rears, ITP Baja's fronts, RZR 2's all the way around, Uni filter, 13t sprocket, CCP steering Damper, DS450 shock swap, Dual Gasser Throttle, bar risers and Moose barkBusters. 730XX kit plus other engine mods!

I have PRM skids and Ricochet A-Arm guards, Nash04 did the research they come up higher and offer more protection. I am not the easiest on my quad when go over rocks I try to go as fast as I can to get past them...lol my arms are when it shows most but there isn't a boulder I wouldnt think of crossing since our clearance is awesome and she is well protected
