Any pictures or input would be welcome.
I found that the worst stone strike damage occurred just in front of the rear wheels, and the protective film there is neither thick or large enough for "AT sized rocks". Mudflaps (splash guards) didn't help, and I doubt flares would make a difference in this area.
FWIW I have 275s on standard offset, so they are only out 5mm more plus the increased shoulder. The damage below was after only a small amount of dirt road travelling at 80-90km/h.
I think the most offroad suitable solution would be the Mopar sliders or similar, with any gaps between the tubular sections filled in.
