Is the IB's still available at that price? Where?I think it all depends on how hard you ride and where you ride. We go to Hatfield & McCoys in WV and we ride pretty hard. I honestly believe Al skid plates are worth every penny. I have Aluminum Product full under armor on my Honda Rincon and it has held up great. I was going to put the same ones on my 2018 Kodiak but found a smokin deal ($400) from Iron Baltic and decided to give them a try. When I took of the stock plastic plates I was pretty disappointed in them. Seemed weak and poorly mounted so I was glad I decided to change them out. The IB went on very easy and fit like a glove. I’m a little concerned about the indented washer (for a lack of better words) that are supposed to protect the bolt heads. Seems like a sharp rock could damage or sheer them off but time will tell. I only have 21 miles on my Kodiak. I went with Al over plastic because I don’t think quads hanging up on rocks is that big of a deal compared to a SxS. I took some video during the install and if I ever get time to upload it to YouTube I’ll post a link. Unfortunately, I didn’t take any still pics so I took some screen shots from the vids.
Have any picks installed?I went with the Yamaha aluminum bash plate on the front and stock plates everywhere else. Gives me a little more strength up front for the harder hits but keeps the weight and the price tag down. Takes 15-minutes and 4 bolts to install. Very happy.
