While the machine is brand new, the rear air intakes Frog Skin pre-filter were lifting in a few crease marks, I ordered the EXE Engineering Plates that go on top. $65

5 star review for thick .080" metal with heavy powder coated white, which ties in with my Blue Beast main decal cover scheme and flows with the other white accents......

They're quite functional and fit flush, I don't do bling. o_O

Today the T-Rex got the frogskins flipped, and stickers to add more Beast Mode torque.

Easy to flip them and they seal tight against the intake housing. The grate moved to the outside really offers better protection for the fabric.

Swapped mine around today too. I think it will be helpful, but I am still thinking they are pretty vulnerable. Needs to have a screen or something that has a gap for better protection. I'm thinking on a solution, nothing concrete yet. By the way, Cool T-Rex!

I flipped mine around too. Seems like much better protection from branches. I removed the air boxes too and cleaned them out with some simple green and a pressure washer. You’ll be surprised what you find in there!

I flipped mine around shortly after I bought it. Other than an occasional pine needle or two caught up in it, they work great. If you are a mudder I can see where maybe you could plug them up, but other than that I can't see them ever getting plugged up. Much better protection for the frogskinz.

So far I have zero complaints. They are fairly sticky which makes them great for rock crawling, yet they seem to be wearing very well. Very quiet, smooth riding tire. They are also very durable. Been running them at 10 psi and punishing them on the rocks pretty good. No sign of any sort of sidewall damage. For dirt, hard pack and rocks, they are as good as anything else I've run and better than a lot. I will have to wait to see how they perform in the snow and ice before I can pass any final judgement on them, but so far I highly recommend them.

I would like to flip my frog skins around too where the plastic is on the outside of the skin but and I may get criticism for this question but is there any issue with the skin sucking in since there is no plastic backing behind it once u do that?

No, the skin will NOT suck in. Mine have been flipped around almost since new. About 700 miles now. Nothing to worry about.
