if you get one. And a brush guard. You might have to modify the skid plate to allow frame mount for the brush guard. That's how it is on mine.

it's easy to plasma cut or hell even grind it off. depending on the frame mounts it shouldn't be to much. Just mark it out and use the grinder like a jig saw.

I think it would get cold and crack easily...all the polycarbonate we use at work gets brittle with age and freezing temps..and good luck painting it and keeping it nice...lol
