A Tougher Skid Plate
Do you trust the plastic and metal stock skid plate to protect your KRX 1000? You shouldn’t—hard hits can break welds and bend metal so that it rubs and damages brake lines, prop shafts, or wiring. With SuperATV’s 1/2” ARMW Full Skid Plate installed on your Kawasaki Teryx KRX, you’ll have full front to back protection from big rocks and gnarly trails.

Made of Proprietary ARMW
SuperATV’s skid plates lead the industry in strength, durability, and innovation. SuperATV utilizes 1/2” thick ARMW for each piece of the Defender skid plate. ARMW is a proprietary UHMW blend that has ultra-high abrasion resistance, unmatched impact strength, and ridiculously low wear characteristics. Instead of banging and screeching over every rock, ARMW is quiet and smooth and won’t get bent out of shape.

Creates a Perfectly Smooth Surface
We use countersunk bolts to ensure that you get the smoothest skid plates possible. These bolts are flush with the skid plate so you can slide over rocks and stumps without hitting your bolts. That makes bottom-out scenarios smoother and prevents damage to your skid plate.

Perfect Fit
We know skid plates are more difficult than your average part to install. That’s why we laser scan the KRX before we design our skid plate. Along with CNC cutting and bending, that gives you a perfect, smooth fit and an easy installation.

Not sure why you would need these all if not most KRXs come stock with skid plates.

Krx definitely needs a skid plate if you plan on using it off road.. The thin sheet metal underside adds sheer and will get bent up easily..The stock accessory skid at $400 does not cover the foot wells and so soft it shreds when you slide over or catch anything. Thankfully there are better options out there!
But for those who don't mind their underside and frame members bent up like hamburger a skid is the least of their worries!

A quality skid plate is the first item I put on all my machines. It saves the machine from damage and adds resale value when you move on to another machine.

That's a good looking product. I haven't picked up my new KRX yet, it's being put together at the dealership. I put the Tusk 3/8" uhmw on it. I'd have considered that one when buying if I had seen it.

If those skids are dented up like that or even more by the front jacks, how hard will it be to correct and then get a skid plate installed to not have that happen again? Assuming if it smashed up like that nothing is really damaged but what if it is even more dented up and across towards the inner main frame rail (not the rail itself)?

I don’t have the courage to mash up my machine like that. Rock riding is a no go for me.

Same here. Just watching the videos on YouTube of guys busting up their 20k+ machines makes me cringe!!

I ride off-road trails, mud, snow occasional run over of bushes and have yet to see a single dent in my skid plate. As a matter of fact I don’t think they’re metal.

Those dents are from rocks. The stock Kawasaki has metal on the bottom. To fix this damage and prevent future damage get a hammer and bend the metal back down. If your not satisfied with the repair you could also purchase new metal from Kawasaki before installing the aftermarket skid plate. Install a UHMW or Aluminum skid plate. I prefer the 1/2" UHMW because it's super strong and slides on rocks. This damage would have been prevented if the skid was installed when new. The first Mod I do on any machine is a skid plate. This keeps the machines like new on the bottom.

Thank you. My concern is what is above the skids that could be damaged by such severe denting on the underside. The one I’m looking at is dented in much more that what you are showing in your pics on the two sides under the foot floorboard area....
