I'd lose the diamond plate if possible. I find it ugly, but then again I don't like the chrome on truck either. The old ABS front Coleman pop up I towed all over there and back over showed any signs of damage from road debris. Sometimes manufactures put stuff on for show and marketing reasons, not because they are strictly necessary. Mhartzel's experience of a tire shredding is always a possibility but that should be covered by insurance.

Mine has the small platform on front, so the diamond plate seems like a good idea to me. If you just want the cosmetic look, go to your local sign supplier and get some diamond plate adhesive backed Mylar film. It looks nice and will likely be easier to clean. It's a good place to check out for other thin sheet material, in case you don't like the mylar. they will also cut to size. Proveer is my go to supplier, if you can't find them look under sign suppliers, or plastics.
