Ive ordered a lot of stuff from atv outfitters, good service. I don't remember if I bought my ricochets from them but I know my rims and tires came from them.

If you ride rocky terrain make sure you get the kit with the front bash plate. The two pieces overlap and give you excellent protection where you need it most, the front. You will most likely bottom the front suspension out and that is where the thick aluminum skids earn their keep...

I had a discount code from Polaris forum and bought directly from Ricochet.

I also got them directly from them. I got the black and am really impressed how well the anodized is holding up, considering it's the second bike they're on...

Thanks everyone for the help. I know I want black skids.I have the brushed aluminum 800xt and think black will look good. I want the full frame kit. From the bash plate all the way to the back. Should i opt for a arm guards as well? Or are they more trouble than not? Guys thanks again.

I bought mine from ricochet themself...there is a discount with the you being a forum member (15% I think). And I ask for an additional % off because I didn't want the t shirt...so they gave me an additional 5% and the shirt anyways....for a total of 20% off, if I remember correctly...I got full skids in all black for less than $500.00 total, shipping and everything...

I was quoted $420 shipped from a grizzly forum. Lol it's cheaper to get outty skids on a grizzly forum than here that don't seam right!? I haven't decided if iron Baltic or ricochet are better.

RVS, can you get a full set of skids for a 2014 Commander Max XT? Shipped to 49508. I can have it delivered at a business if that helps.
