Floor board protection?

Although it's too late, my wife ran a very large stump through her floorboard today. Pretty impressive actually, ran through so far it pushed up her brake so much you couldn't push it down. So now we have to buy a new floorboard so might as well protect it. What do you guys recommend? Underbody protection or on top of floorboard protection? It's nice to be able to tell her (once again) I wish you'd take better care of your stuff.

we don't have any undercarriage protection yet... we are checking into under the rig~ rather than on top of the floorboards... I take it that your wife is OK?? I will be checking to see what suggestions you get

I put a stick through my pass side floor board. punched a hole the size of my fist. Im a fan of under the floor protection, it looks like it would offer more stability.

i put the aluminum floor mats on the inside. no holes after that. the part you need looks like its pretty cheap. looks like it may be a pain in the ass to change. thats a good reason to put the aluminum floor boards in thore $75.

Thanks for your replies. I like how far up and under the Hunterworks protectors are so I'll probably go with those. Don't need to replace it until the 4th of July so I'll keep an eye out for ebay also.

I got the floorboard protectors from ebay.The diamond plate aluminum are about $110, and black powdercoat are $159.I went with the powdercoated, but if I had it to do over I would buy the silver and spray them with 3m undercoater.I wouldn't ride my rhino too much without these protectors.

The ones I put on protect the wheel well and goes on back under the floor boards; works really well and I am sure has kept me from getting any holes with the stuff I have run over.

One of my relatives had a stick come in through the passenger side and it nearly speared the back of the seat. Good thing nobody was sitting in it. Another guy in our area had a rock break through the floorboard. It was the size of a football. I have alloy protection on mine. I also have an alloy bash plate comming because the front one dosen't last very long.
