I would like to add a full body skid plate to my Rincon. Any suggestions on which one is best would be appreciated. Keep in mind I'm all when it comes to anything mechanical, so ease of installation is high on my list. Also, considering cv boot guards. Let me know what you think.

Do a "Search" back for 180 days and you will find several threads on the subject.

Hi Scott! You might want to try a system by Aluminum Products. Their site is http://wwww.aluminumproducts.com

I recently purchased a full body skid plate, stick guards, and a front skid plate with a Warn 3.0 winch. They sell the entire works! I don't mind saying that I am extremely happy with the product. I ordered one afternoon and it arrived UPS the next day. I had a question during installation and called them. They were more than helpful even though the instructions would have answered the question had I read them completely (duhh!). Good luck with whatever you purchase!!

I have the winch front end (warn 2.5ci) from AP and like it a lot, plan on guards and skid plate, Am concerned about drain plug though, I think they have small plate in that area. But I dont like the oil draining onto the plate, not sure if it will.

Hi SaltyBeagle! I have the complete AP system on my '03 Rincon. The plate that you are speaking of is held in place by two allen head screws. When removed, the oil drains right through the hole.

About the only thing I would add is that I put a non-seizing compound on the screw threads. I have had other metals have a reaction between steel and aluminum, sometimes seizing and being very difficult to remove. So far...no problem. Good luck!!

Spend the xtra few bucks and get the PRM package, simply the best available.

I have the PRM full belly and absolutely love them. I ride near the Rubicon Trail and serious skid protection is not an option. They are bomb-proof.

Whatever brand you choose, I have found installing them very easy if you just stand the quad on its rear tires and rack (headlights aiming at the sky). That enables you to actually see all of the mounting holes!

Armidillo, no Al or Steel there. The Lexan slips on mud, snow rocks what ever. AND , they "absorb" concussion, not transfer it like metal does. The company is called All Terrain Charlies, US and Canadian dealers and the Armidillo works. I have had one for 4 months and it really shines on rocks and logs.

Went with the products from Aluminum Products, excellent manufacturing and heavy duty aluminum, simply the best value out there right now.

I just posted in another thread about my experience with Armidillo skids. Hate it and will tell everyone.
Here is the link to my rant if anyone cares.
