Tree through the floor

A tree branch came through the passenger floor. I'm sure I'm not the first, so what have you done, replace the floor or patch it? The hole is about 4".

Re: Tree through the floor

I had a stick come up on the drivers side right under my left foot. It made about a 2" hole in the floor board but didn't break out the piece so i was able to glue it back down.

Re: Tree through the floor

I have had it happen twice. Once on drivers side and once on passenger side. The one on drivers side pinned my right foot back against the seat base and gave me a pretty good scar on my ankle. The one on the passenger side just missed my wifes leg. Both came through saem where the floor meets the fire wall and left no holes. There are some aluminum fender well protectors on e-bay that would help with what happened to mine.

Re: Tree through the floor

Had it happen to me. Dead Lodge pole pine through the firewall. I got a plastic welder from harbor freight and some plastic rods and welded it back. I rough sanded it and you can hardly tell where it went through.

Re: Tree through the floor

I have always had this go through my mind. This just maybe the deciding factor for my decision to install some aftermarket protection!

Re: Tree through the floor

I do have a FUTV skid. The branch came up just above the skid and frame.

OUCH!!!! I had this happen on a Ranger that I had----- I cut some aluminum diamond plate and glued in a section over the hole-- I did both side (passenger/driver) to make it look better.

Re: Tree through the floor

My front tire threw large rock thru my 2015 RZR XP4 floor board last weekend! It scared the shit out of my brother-in-law who had his foot on the portion of the floor where the rock hit. He had a pretty nasty bruise on the bottoms of his foot a few hours after our ride. Is this a common problem? How do I go about fixing the hole?Click image for larger version
