Wow! I sold my Black 2009 Lexus IS350 fully modded to buy my Black 2011 Tacoma PreRunner.....Well....I sold my IS350 because I only needed one car and my other car was a Black 2010 Porsche Carrera S....

I had my Tacoma since New Year's Eve 2010 have no rock chips so far..... I knew that driving fast had an advantage.....

You should leave a distance when following behind cars especially trucks.....

My Hankook MT's pick up a handful of 3/4" rocks per tire every day and heave them at my truck .

I have a few nicks , yes .

Get a touch up pen at the dealership

I also had the TOUCH GUARD PAINT SEALANT put on my truck as soon as I got it to protect the paint from anything that lands on it.....I had my friend put on extra layers on the roof....hood..... Not worried about rock chips cause it's bound to happen in time nothing you can do about it.....
