Skid plates

11 posts in this topic

Sorry if this is a dead horse, I searched for old posts with limited success. I'm looking to replace the plastic plates on my '06 Kodiak. Has anyone found a place in the twin cities to order some up? I'd prefer not to purchase directly off the net... Thanks!!

My first choice would be a dealership. Most that I have seen order a wide range of brands through Parts Unlimited (they only sell through dealers).

"My first choice would be a dealership."

That might not be your wallets first choice though!! Dealerships prices on accessories are usually pretty high when compared to catalog or internet orders.

I'd try Dennis Kirk or Shade Tree locally.

Or, make your own. They are pretty easy for the most part.

Here is mine, it took just over an hour to make and install.

See the little nubs on the tires? That was straight off the trailer from the dealer. It had about 50 ft on the machine at that time. winkwink

Well, umm.... the trailer is all loaded up and we're heading for the border in the morning for 6 days of nothing but riding. If its just questions, email me and I will check it later. If you need me to do something for you I'd like to help but, sorry you know me, priorities prevail right now. If it can wait, I'll be back by next Saturday and I can help you out then. blush

    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood.
