I wonder if or when Yamaha or the aftermarket will be coming out with a inner fender guard to prevent branches and small trees to come through the foot wells and into the cabin area? My Rhino had these and it saved my wife a few times.
Has anybody seen these for the Viking yet?

I was having the same thought but more concerned about getting something into the radiator or brake master cylinder. They are pretty exposed!

Yea I never thought of those yet. Wanna get the wife and boy protected first. But that being said, it'd be nice if they or somebody came out with the same guards as the Rhino has. I know it had guards for the master cylinder and overflow tank.

I'll build my own first and then pitch it.

Is this something that would be easy to DIY? Or would it be complicated enough that you should buy from a professional manufacturer instead? I imagine that all you have to do is bolt on a think plastic sheet that is the right shape and size.

I could fab it up. It should be made of steel. I've personally seen a 3" tree limb come through the passenger wheel well and stick into the back rest of the seat.

If you could do that it will be awesome!
How long do you think it will take till we see pictures of it?

What about aluminum checker plate? A little lighter than steel and would bend to shape a bit better.
Just a thought?

I'm thinking that too. Either 1/8 steel sheet or 1/4 aluminum checker.
