That's pretty much all I did on my old WR426. The only problem is that the glide plates fit between the frame rails and don't protect the frame very well. This may be OK for just mud and logs but rocks beat up and weaken the frame rails so I made my own skid plate that covered the frame rails all the way back to the rear down tubes. I'll try to find a pic if I can. WR Dave.
Thanks WR Dave. My existing plastic glide plate is between the frame rails but I think I have seen aluminum glide plates that go over the frame rails too(at least that is the way they look in the TT store pics). Being from the East Coast I will definitely come across plenty of rocks.
I think I am more concerned that the case guards won't do as good a job as the plating on a full skid plate but I have no field test experience to warrant my concern.

Are they one and the same?
