It's a tough world out there. Mother Nature can be a cold-hearted mistress, throwing all manner of pain your way that will scar, dent, and mash unsuspecting sheetmetal without mercy. Unless you take the right precautions.
Protective layers of steel, iron, and aluminum can keep the worst damage at bay and prolong the life of your rig. Take advantage of the body armor available to four-wheelers (much of which is listed on the following pages). Show Mother Nature who's boss on the trail.
Well, until she starts throwing stuff like rain, snow, hail, and lightning bolts at you. Then you'll be looking for protection of an entirely different sort. But that's another story.
