had a 4" log go thru my fiberglass kit just aft of the driver seat and stuck out behind the passenger side fiberglass. Carried it for an hour b4 someone asked me what I was going to do with it. I said what log? Wooooa dude! Never ride where the woods have been clearcut.

We've put a pair of 6" and 10" gashes through the floor from landing jumps onto rocks, and that's with a nice thick 6082 skidplate, bollocks to having a plastic floor!

It is important for woods buggies to have the passenger
compartment wrapped with shielding of some kind. Running
over tree branches that are laying on the ground is a
risk of "popping" the branch upward. If the timing is right,
you will drive right into the end of the branch and the
branch end will enter the passenger compartment. The
word is impalement. It is ugly.

I made the mistake of riding on fresh clear cut land with the tree tops everywhere ...I will never do that again ! I didnt get hurt but 1 stick ripped air filter off and broke throttle linkage.
