yes to both. I actually bought an alum. skid plate but it didnt last 1 ride. so i picked up a sheet of 3/8" UHMW and used the old one as a template added a few extra drain holes, it works great but not real cheap.I fabed up the lift too.Ed said that he would have rzr shocks in this week so that will be the next mod.
I would love to add some crutchfields or walker evan shocks at some point, but i have things that are higher on the list. Im still debating btwn a Warn XT30 and the new Viper elite 4500. How is your winch holding up? Can you compare it to any of the warn's you had (cant remember if you had an XT or regular outty)
