I was thinking metal the thickness of the metal undercarriage accessory. I occasionally hear loud knocks of debris attempting to shove its way into the machine, so it seems to be a decent thickness.

Paths get hard to cross after hurricanes and timber cuts.
Yeah Iíve seen Ute frames on older quads so something similar but smaller.
You have skid plates too?

Skid plate, A-arm guards, rear swingarm guard, bison brush guard. Also, if I had the mud guard fabricated, I might consider attaching a drip torch mount on it, or even something to hold a shovel in one position. These tools are imperative in burning which is coming up pretty soon.

Thinking of trying to find 120? degree angle brackets and sheet metal and doing this myself. Here's the torch mount: https://www.forestry-suppliers.com/p...85051&mi=15801

I managed to have something fabricated that should suit my needs. Have a look, behold the awesomeness:

The plastic mud guard/step fits right over this cage like structure that screws into the frame and front and rear racks. It is totally removable and looks like a factory option.

Looks great! Hope this works for you. It will sure add some protection for your feet. LOL
I have been friends for years with the owner of Forestry Suppliers. His catalog can entertain me for days. Hope you can add the mount you wanted.
