Do you guys ever get rock chips in the WK headlight housing?

this question is more for guys that drive in winter where the roads are covered with sand/gravel.

has any WK owner experienced a rock chip in their headlight housing? seems like a big target on the front of the jeep.

Nothing yet, but you know I have not done a good wash down in awhile - next time i'll peak around and really look for chips and such.

Re: Do you guys ever get rock chips in the WK headlight housing?

I bought a clear bra kit and they come with headlight covers, guess I could put them on, but a rock at 55mph could go through it I would think.

Many years ago I had wire grilles that went over the headlights of my car, haven't seen those for the WK, but I would get them if they were available.

Re: Do you guys ever get rock chips in the WK headlight housing?

From a shop that supplies them. They do the install. Maybe on my next Jeep I will get one. I heard that they can protect the paint from anything up to 120MPH. Not anything but rocks, etc.
