That's a sure fire guarantee that someone's going to go out of their way to do something to it.

Yes, it does answer your question. While you are fretting over the inevitable I am out enjoying mine. And I live in Michigan with some pretty wicked winters and pot holes. You know the last vehicle I bought new and sold to buy my Jeep I kept 15 years. I kept a heavy coat of wax on it at all times. And even with living in Michigan winters it did not have one speck of rust on it when I sold it. Like the song says: Don't worry, Be happy. Just go out and drive your Jeep and enjoy it.

Kilad4n probably gave you the best alternative... stone guard vinyl. It'll give you what you need without ruining the lines of your Jeep like mudflaps will. And you can put it where you feel it will do the most good.

Edited to add...

If you're anywhere near an outfit that installs the clear bra material (like Xpel) it would be worth checking out. They may already have a kit for rocker panels or could do it from scratch. That material is supposed to be self-healing so stone impacts would virtually disappear in a few minutes.

Re: Stone damage on rear doors

You could try one of the side step products that in conjunction with slush guards at least protect the back door area, especially if there is a flexible seal between the step & sill area which some do have. Worked on my previous 2 mitsu's, but probably not compatible with rock sliders!

Re: Stone damage on rear doors

My answer to this issue is going to be ordering some tires with a harder compound, then having the rockers painted.... I can think of no other way to remedy this.

Re: Stone damage on rear doors

New tires will still pick up stones and toss them against the new paint, I guarantee it. Just maybe not as quickly, but it's not the complete solution because I've used two sets of different tires, one AT and the other the stock Forteras, and they both pick up a lot of small stones.

I'd look into getting more XPEL film in that area, as suggested. I think that will still even start to show signs of wear eventually, but it will at least protect your paint.

You'll need to get tires with a fairly smooth tread as well, so the tread doesn't pick up rocks and toss them.

Re: Stone damage on rear doors

Any pics of said damage area?
So I can see where to have Xpel put on mine.

BTW, I had Xpel put on my 13 GT500 (first time ever doing anything like this) it was EXPENSIVE but I have been blown away with how strong it is.
Had the whole: Hood, bumper, fenders, mirrors and lower rockers covered ($2,700) and not one imperfection.

While that might seem all nice and dandy, this vehicle has been 200MPH... in bug season.
Ok still not impressed? On my way to work one morning a vehicle ahead of me changed lanes on the highway, when they changed lanes they picked up a piece of REBAR that was in-between the 2 lanes and it through it at my vehicle.... No where to go, no way to avoid, traveling 70 MPH the damn thing hit flat at a 60 degree angle on the front bumper (super super pissed since I will admit I have done some dumb things on public roads with this car and would understand if during those times something happened then I brought it on myself... but not doing the speed limit, on a bright sunny day, and 6 car lengths behind the car in front of me) ah.. anyway that damn rebar smacked the bumper like it was its sole job in life... cracked the bumper itself in half... But not one damn nick or scratch in the paint!!!

So... Xpel is some tough shit
