Default Skid Plate

I have a Indy XC850 coming and I always run with a skid plate. Have always gone with the OEM ones before just thinking of trying something else. I assume this will be the same skidplate as my 2015 Rush used.
Any suggestions of aftermarket brands?

skinz float plate if you do any off trail at all. these by far provide the most protection for your sled. all the hard core off trail guys we have run these. you should see the gouges etc. in these no bent a-arms, cracked bulk heads etc. they work.
