Protective shield for Toad!

Curious what everyone is using for a protective shield to protect the Toad from rocks and debris kicking up off the road? The Blue Ox Kar Guard looks interesting.

I use a set of Rock Solid flaps that run all the way across the rear just forward of the rear hose storage bumper (which I understand no longer comes on a Sunseeker). It is a set I custom built from two pairs. I eliminated the stupid Rock Solid logo, and the center section of three is easily removable for when I’m not towing a toad. Between the rear Rock Solid guards and the stock dually mudflaps, I’ve not had any toad rock damage. But I drive on fairly clean roads, not stuff like the Alaska highway.

I looked at the Blue Ox KarGard stuff, but it seemed pricey for what it is and I’m not sure it would even work with my tow bar.

I bought one of the brush style guards; so far, there's been no evidence of rock/gravel damage on the pickup despite covering several miles on gravel & hundreds of miles on pavement.

This is the best pic I have in my on-line images:




I leave the guard on all the time, towing or not.

Full rubber mud flap from Camping World did the trick for our Terrain behind the Georgetown for countless miles. It was on all the time to keep road spray down at the back too.

We use Roadmaster Tow Defender Protective Screening. It has worked great. Even when we got detoured on a gravel road in Kansas. It rolls up for easy storage on the hitch.
