Polaris RZR XP-1000 Half Inch UHMW Skid Plate. Factory UTV’s UHMW Skid Plates are the gold standard for UTV protection systems. OEM skid plates simply do not satisfactorily protect the underside of your UTV under normal off road operation. With items as important as your fuel tank and hydraulic lines right above the skid plates an alternative to the OEM skids is imperative for fun and safe off roading. Factory UTV has the answer with skid plates constructed from UHMW (Ultra-High Molecular Weight) plastic. Significantly lighter than aluminum, FUTV skids and A-Arm guards offer full protection for the undercarriage of your UTV. We’ve also added an X-Brace option under the engine/trans area of the RZR XP. “ ½” or 3/8” UHMW rear skid with an 1/8” inch 6061 high strength aluminum backing plate, X brace aluminum backing plate is installed in between UHMW skid and chassis frame, and limits the amount of impact absorbing skid plate flex in the rear vital areas. If your going to play hard in your RZR XP, you’ll need the added X-Brace protection. UHMW is tough, wear resistant plastic that combines an incredibly low coefficient of friction with outstanding impact strength, and will outwear carbon steel 10 to 1. Unlike aluminum, UHMW also has memory, meaning after a big impact hits aluminum will bend ,gouge and break while UHMW maintains it’s original shape. These skid plates are very TOUGH!
