GYTR skids are really nice.....but you will have to drill a hole out for the oil tank drain, as GYTR put the hole in the wrong spot! No biggy, especially if its not mounted yet.

What. Where they made out of wood?
Sorry. Couldn't resist. Slap me. ;)
You need to pick up some tools, as a lot of parts need tweaked a little to fit.... as I just found out mounting my skids. Of course, if I had boughten the Pro Armor nerfs first instead of the Tusks I already had, they are designed to work with the Pro Armor chassis skid.

I have armadillo full skids, and I have been please with them. Purchased the set from RockyMountain for $231.97 shipped.

As you can see, the holes for the crankcase drain and the reservoir drain are already there. I had no problems mounting them.

Skid plates are definitely the first upgrade I would recommend. (I wish they still looked like they do in the picture below)

The engine skid and the swingarm skid were very simple to mount. The a-arm skid had minor difficulties with the two brackets in the small part of the "A". (See the two holes in the picture. Each had a small 'hook' that bolted on opposite directions over the a-arm)
