are they worth it or not worry about them. First trip to brimstone I tore a inner cv boot and bent the front a-arm dont know if the guards would have helped or not. trying to decide between a-arm guards or a new skid plate.

I have UHMW guards and like them pretty well. A couple months ago I hit a rock pretty hard, the guard popped off and the a-arm got busted up. Maybe if I didn't have it the arm would have broke both welds, I don't know.

I think I would go with aluminum next time though. I have superatv forward a-arms now and they are suppossed to be built a little stronger.

I would definately get a new skid plate without a doubt. I built my own UHMW plate and I absolutely love it. It has taken a pounding and couldn't imagine riding without it. It stretches from the rear hitch all the way up and wraps up the front end where the bumper would be.

To me, it's not an either or -- you need both.

Full under-body armor (such as Warn makes) would be great, if it weren't so freaking expensive...

I like having them. I have the ones from EMP. However, they can gather a lot of leaves in the fall and also ice and snow can pack around your axles easier in the really cold weather. However, I will take that trade-off for protecting the axles.

Full skid plate here, no a-arm guards though, it traps mud in-between and tears up the boots!!

Nice pics M&G. I have the Ricochets on my Teryx and really like them. 1/4" thick and lots of holes to let the air in and the water and debris out.

Skids are a must, A arm guards not so much, I did have the EMP A arm guards on my Teryx and was not impressed with them. They hold all kinds of crap and if you bend it they rub against the rim.whats everyone's thought on A-Arm guards? LMFT034
