    I purchased a new 2011 TRD Sport DC (Black) one year ago. Had damage(chipping) due to road spatter to "dog leg" (flare in front of rear tire) in first month.Toyota will warranty one time but I want to stop future damage. Only recommendation from local dealer was installing full coverage running boards. I have already installed Raptor SS nerf bars which I really like. Have looked at several different "clear cover" products but unsure. Any ideas would be appreciated ! This is my first post . Thanks

    This looks like it might work- I was think of some of it for the hood, bumpers etc.

    So, you're getting chips on the rockers?

    Do you have mudflaps?

    OEM Running boards are nice.....I have the double cab running boards on my access cab. They cover the entire side (wheel to wheel). Mudflaps plus the running boards help with road splatter & door dings.

    Yes I have factory installed OEM mudflaps which are more than sufficient, wide and low. I believe that somehow due to design that the "debri" is blowing out around flaps and back on the area I describe. Without a wind tunnel to check, who knows . Basically wondering if anyone else is having this same issue. More noticeable on a dark colored truck. should have bought a Silver one.

    Not a mark or chip on mine. But I had the clear Shields installed from day 1.

    What kind of tires are you running and what kind of roads are you driving on?

    I never had any problems to begin with even prior to installing the running boards.

    Have any pictures of the damage?
