I have the Chevy Colorado 4X4 Z71 with the factory fender flares. I went to Coast Line Cover here in CA and had a Tow Shield custom made. They now have a pattern for the Colorado/Canyon trucks with the fender flares. By the way they did a great job, protection for the front, hood and windshield.

Gary,

I tow a PT Cruiser, and I use a Roadmaster shield on a Blue Ox tow bar. I fabricated some adapters from angle iron for the Roadmaster shield mounting brackets. I made the brackets so that the shield will ride as low as possible to protect the gravel pans below the bumper.

We towed the car to Alaska, and I found that unless your shield extends completely below the bottom body panel in the front of your vehicle, you are going to get stone nicks below the bumper. If you haven't covered that area, you may want to extend the shield.

Also, watch for damage on your rear doors and side panels. They will be nicked by stones thrown up by your tow vehicle's front tires. Either install large mudflaps or have the 3M film installed on your rear doors and side body panels.

That's input after returning from Alaska.

Good luck and have fun.

W8RLM - Bob

Be careful of the Coast Line type bra...I had one from them for my 2005 Honda CRV and after 18000 miles a couple of the hold downs rubbed/mared the paint finish beyond repair by waxing. It would need to be repainted now
