Some of your Kawasaki Mule’s most important parts and components can be found on its underside. Things like A-arms, axles, and prop shafts all make their home in your Kawasaki Mule’s undercarriage. While this positioning is necessary, it does leave them exposed and vulnerable to abuse from the off-road. Things like tree stumps, rocks, boulders, branches, and other random trail debris lie in wait to tear the underside of your Kawasaki Mule to shreds. Protecting the valuable yet vulnerable components of your Kawasaki Mule’s undercarriage require the use of a skid plate. Be it stick stoppers, A-arm guards, shock guards, nerf bars, or skid plates, any good UTV or side by side like the Kawasaki Mule will come equipped with some form of underside protection. However, many riders don’t feel comfortable with the level of protection their Kawasaki Mule’s factory skid plate and undercarriage protection accessories offer. This is because Kawasaki uses cheap plastic materials to construct these skid plates and underside protection parts unlike the durable and heavy-duty yet lightweight materials used to create the Kawasaki Mule aftermarket skid plates and skid plate accessories you will find here.

If you want to upgrade your Kawasaki Mule with a high-quality aftermarket UTV skid plate but don’t know where to begin, we suggest checking out some of our Kawasaki Mule skid plate kits like the Kawasaki Mule Pro UHMW Ultimate Armor Kit by Factory UTV. This skid plate is built from heavy-duty yet lightweight UHMW, which is hands-down the strongest plastic known to man. UHMW skid plates are virtually indestructible, but they’re also flexible enough to absorb impacts. UHMW skid plates are also great because they won’t burden your Kawasaki Mule down with a ton of extra weight.
The 1/2" Kawasaki Mule skid plate kit by SuperATV is popular among riders, and so too are the skid plates by Factory UTV. The latter is designed particularly well, with sections behind the front tire that roll up to bring protection to both the frame and the wheel wells. Plus, because the unit consists of larger pieces, there aren't as many seams and conjunction points as, say, Ricochet Off Road's ten-piece skid plate set. That being said, this may be more or less advantageous depending on where and how you ride. Additionally, the material manufacturers use to make their Kawasaki Mule skid plates is another important factor to consider. Although Kawasaki Mule aluminum skid plates are superior in some situations, they are known to crack and deform, and can also be noisy when riding on rocky terrain. Kawasaki Mule UHMW plastic skid plates, on the other hand, absorb impacts without denting, and they easily slide over protruding hazards so that your rig doesn't get stuck or hung up. Whichever style you choose, though, comparing the Kawasaki Mule skid plates we offer to the stock Kawasaki Mule skid plates is like comparing an anvil to a piece of glass!
