Just bought new Maverick XXC and looking to purchase either UTVinc or FACTORYutv uhmw skip plate and A arms protectors. They vary a little from one another. Which one would you guys suggest and why?

Question: When running through mud, which one would better drain water & mud?

Thank you much.

You could make your own... that stuff is easy to work with. Buy the sheet, copy the bolt hole pattern off the stock one and make it however you want.

I ended up using the 1/2" factory utv skid on my mav xrs. I like the fact that there's no seam close to the middle of the large center piece the seams are at the front and the rear. Factory utv has cutouts so that you can get to the lower bolts on the belt cover in case of a belt failure in the middle of nowhere. UTV inc. does not show cutouts on there website..... nothing a hole saw couldn't take care of just more screwing around on your part.
Its amazing just how slippery this material is, as for which one would shed mud and water better i would think factory utv's would because of all the holes although one could argue the holes are just letting more mud and water in.

Factory UTV all the way! Busted a large hole in one of their skids on my RZR S. Sent them a pic, they sent me a new skid! I paid shipping only.

Factory UTV by far has the best UHMW skid out there. It completely protects the underbelly from side to side, front to rear where some of the other companies just trace out the factory skid which only protects the center of the machine where the expensive stuff is but leaves alot of areas unprotected & edges to catch on when offroading.

I run the FUTV skid with no holes cut in it. I've been running them for 3 years on my Teryx and Mav and I wouldn't run anything else. The 1/2" skids are more of a pain to install since the bottom of the Mav has a very small boat side effect. I'm running the 1/2" and I'll be selling mine to someone local to go down to a 3/8" skid for race prep reasons.
Also for guys that want an alternative to the small bolts that they send, a 5/16 fender washer fits the recessed hole perfect and you can nutsert the frame. That's what I've done on all the leading edges since I've ripped skid plates of in the past.

And like the signature says we sell what we race.
