    THanks for the link! Pretty good price $308 shipped OTD. I wonder how the vendor is though. I thought I saw bad reviews on BBB...but looking at it right now, its currently being updated.

    Noise? Like rattling noise when you are going down a trail?
    If it is securely bolted in place,... then I don't see it rattling.

    If you are talking about a scraping sound when running over rocks/train tracks/ etc... then absolutely it will be much much louder with a metal skid than a plastic skid.

    I installed the HMW skid plate from Polaris (2880543) on my '15 ACE 570 and the fit was great with no issues. It is noticeably thicker with complete coverage compared to the stock guard.

    Please all keep in mind that HMW and UHMW are not the same thing! HMW is a much weaker and less expensive material. UHMW has more than 10 times the impact strength that HMW has and more than 4 times the wear resistance. Think impact strength is a quality you want in your skid plate? There is a reason that almost every Polaris factory racer runs Factory UTV UHMW products.

    I always assumed that HMW was always a misspelled UHMW.
