Cool OEM Skid plates?
When i bought my KK i didnt opt for the skid plates ( i know..dumb ) so now as i start to prepare to set it up for a hybrid road and off road vic i need to get them.

Is it worth sticking with the OEM ones from the factory? or should i look else where?

The OEM ones will be better than no skids. The aftermarket ones will be heavier duty and cost more.

If you are planning to go off-road then skids and hooks should be your first mods.

Just my opinion.

Yes the OEM skids are better than non. They're very thin. The aftermarket jobs are tough. Steel and or aluminum are available.
