I am looking to add aluminum body, swing arm, and a-arm skid plates. I see a lot companies like PRM and Pro Armor not longer manufacture. I have looked at GYTR, but have read the swing arm skid hangs really low compared to some others. I was going to go with Ricochet, but don't love how the bolts aren't recessed. I also considered the cheaper XFR skids found on eBay, but they don't make a-arm plates. Can anyone recommend any other companies that offer a complete setup or possible a-arm skids other than GYTR that have recessed bolt holes?

I have not had experience with any aluminum skid plates but I have been looking as well. As of now I am going with an XFR swing arm, DRW (poly) belly skid, and GYTR a-arm skids. I know it isn’t a full set of anything, but I didn’t want the GYTR to hang too low on the swings arm. The only reason I went with the DRW belly skid was because I found it on sale.

I plan on XFR skid plates and haven't decided on the a arm guards yet. Drw is fairly popular but for some reason I'm leaning towards aluminum skid plates.

I have the same concern about the GYTR swing arm skid. I have the DRW case saver and really like the quality, so no doubt the body skid will be nice. GYTR a-arm skids will be my default if I don't find anything else. Armadillo was another solid company that made nice skid plates, but no more.

I have a poly DRW chassis skid plate and a 1/4” aluminum swingarm skid from AC Racing. Both are great. I had AC racings chassis skid plate, but had issues with it rattling

I also had pro armor a arm skids at one time. They looked good, but held a lot of dirt and were prone to rattling

Agreed, I prefer aluminum as well. Leaning towards XFR also, just have to find some decent a-arm skids to go with them.
