    I was wondering what some possible solutions to gravel spray damage on the bottom sides of my truck would be. It's nothing serious, but the paint is slowly chipping off and I would like to prevent any further damage. My tires have big lugs and I don't think those little mudflaps would do much... thinking more along the lines of actual protection on the sides..

    Thoughts?

    I live on a farm, I drive it every day and I usually don't go over 80 km/hr.

    I need some sort of protection.

    I do know there is somethiung that you can spray under your truck to protect it... my friend he work in the body shop, and I ask him to get me some. it is around 6.00 a can, he tell me I need about 12 cans to get it done. he order it for me last night.
    I will give you the brand name so you can do it yourself.
