Also I read somewhere where the rock shield reduces the cooling to the transmission on the toad when towing. Personally I can't see that as a problem. I hope this setup provides decent protection as I want to reduce rock chips as much as possible.

Moe,

I attached a mud flap to the bottom of each side section of my RoadMaster Guardian. I drilled eight pilot holes through each flap and into the back of each of the Guardian side sections, then used some large sheet metal screws, with flat washers, to secure them (two horizontal rows of four).

The mud flaps measure 18 inches wide, 14 inches high, effectively providing about 7 inches more protection. Keeps each lower corner of the toad, which includes fog lights, better protected.

I did not add anything to the larger center section of the Guardian . . . as you indicated, it is good to have air flow through that part.

I have been using the Car Guard from BlueOx but for our trip to AK next summer I think I will get one of these. Users claim they solve all the problems with chips. Cheaper than a paint job on our new CRV..
