We are seeing too many photos like this lately. Please be careful when driving in the woods .Don't drive over branches that may puncture your floorboards. Get additional heavy-duty skids for your ride. BE SAFE.

Thanks for posting Frank. This is scary. I've been considering a 4 seat Turbo S. One thing I discovered is that there is little to no protection from this in the front two seats.

I wish some company would make a skid plate for that area. Seen too many of these.

Re: Be careful when riding in the woods ! Caution graphic photos enclosed .

Wow - that's hard to look at - hope he's recovering ok.

I'm hoping to avoid this from happening to me - just installed a set of McNasty floor guards. In combination with a good aftermarket skid, this should provide a lot more protection from these types of accidents.

Re: Be careful when riding in the woods ! Caution graphic photos enclosed .

Unfortunately, I witness a branch go between a metal roof and a windshield and strike a passengers hand one night. Luckily, she didn't break any bones but her hand swelled and bruised pretty bad. Hopefully, the guy in the picture has a speedy recovery!

Always keep one in every vehicle and know how to use it. That guy was very lucky.

Re: Be careful when riding in the woods ! Caution graphic photos enclosed .

Wow, when I saw this for the first time I thought it was a freak accident, but now i've seen 4 or 5. You would think it would become a safety issue at some point and mfg would be required to beef up that floorboard a little more. I realize there are risks, but this is one the average rider never thinks about.
