Does that make really a huge difference in trails/mud? or its just for rock climbing?

The rear does fit tight. I forget but you have to put 1 piece on before the other in the rear. Once in the correct spot they go on easy.

Thanks for all of the information you've shared already. I received my Iron Baltic A-Arm guards for my 2018 xp 1000 today and have the front guards installed no problem. The left rear "inboard" guard doesn't seem to want to just go in, I have to force it in to have it fit against the rails. Did anyone else experience this? Would anyone share any pictures of the guards installed in the rear? The instructions left a bit to be desired. Thanks!

I had to shave a little bit off the stock skidplate at the back so the inside a arm guards would fit.

Thanks very much, Owee, I'm running into the same thing. Right side fit just fine, left side wouldn't just slide in like the right.

Been a bit since I done mine. I remember they were tight and had to make sure you were putting the right part in the right place.
Never had to shave anything though

Thanks Duston. In looking at how they are made, I'm sure the tolerances aren't super tight but that's speculation on my part.
