Whether you have the stock 1/4" thick plastic skid plates, Pure Polairis 3/8" thick HMW skid plates or any of the aftermarket 3/8" or 1/2" thick UHMW skid plates, you still have a sheet of plastic that is flexible and will bend & flex wherever it is not properly supported. The 2015 & newer RZR 900 models, and RZR-S 1000, have a large opening in the center of the frame where there is no support for a plastic skid plate. When you bottom-out or slide over an obstacle, your UHMW or plastic skid plate flexes up. This can damage the coolant lines that Poalris runs along the skid plate, bend frame crossmembers, crack the stock skid plate or break the bolts and tear-apart the seam of the mating pieces on an aftermarket UHMW skid plate.
For years, Thunderhawk Performance has been selling a Skid-Max kit for the RZR 800 to protect that machine from damage caused when using the popular UHMW skid plates. Thunderhawk Performance now offers similar protection for the 2015 & newer RZR 900's and the 2016 RZR-S 1000. This new kit provides a CNC cut and formed aluminum Skid-Max plate that is installed on the frame to strengthen the frame, to protect the coolant lines an other components mounted low on the RZR chassis and to stop skid plate damage & failure caused by skid plate flex. Check the internet, there are a number of people with damaged skid plates on 2015 & newer RZR's. The stock skid plate cracks where it bends over the edge of the frame when it flexes. This is the same spot where the aftermarket UHMW skid plates have a seam running across the RZR and will experience fastener failure and seam-separation when the UHMW flexes. The Thunderhawk Skid-Max kit will eliminate these problems.
All parts in this package are installed above your plastic or UHMW skid plate, so there is nothing to hang-down or drag when you are sliding over trail obstacles. Your stock or UHMW skid plates will still give you the smooth, "slippery" bottom surface for which they are known. With this Thunderhawk Skid-Max kit, you'll now have the strength and peace-of-mind knowing that your plastic skid plate will not flex causing expensive hidden damage (even possibly leaving you stranded) and that your skid plate will not crack or come loose on the trail due to flex of an unsupported plastic or UHMW skid plate. The parts in this package install easily in about 45 minutes. Proudly designed and manufactured in USA.
Please note: The photos showing the Skid-Max panel installed on the frame were taken to illustrate to mounting location on the vehicle with the plastic skid plate removed. The Skid-Max plate is not visible when your stock or aftermarket plastic skid plate is installed.
