I highly recommend the Protect-A-Tow mesh shield between the MH and toad. I think that is the very best protection you can have! We have never had a ding on any of our toads using this! Look at my post #10 in the link below to see mine.
Take the big rubber mud flap off of the rear of the coach and your Jeep will be fine. That flap is the biggest cause of stone damage on a towed vehicle or trailer. All that's needed are the small flaps directly behind the tires. Been there and done that.
Edit: I have a brand new Protect-a-Tow still in the bag that I was intending to put on, but found that without the big flap, it wasn't needed.

You'll get many opinions on the rubber flap at the rear of the MH. My personal experience with them has been good, but I have it positioned to hang 6" above the road. Any lower than that can throw up rocks.
On the other hand, the Protect-A-Tow will stop any rocks that the flap throws up!

Trying to find a way to protect my new 2016 Jeep wrangler. On my old toad (83 Jeep CJ7) I custom made brackets to use all the Roadmaster stuff along with the Roadmaster Guardian.
I currently have the Rockhard 4x4 bumper with the Roadmaster brackets but you cant add the Guardian mounts, everything is in the way haha.
I have really never liked the looks of a rock guard type mudflaps on the coach but i may have no choice.
Any ideas or suggestions I would appreciate.

I have the Aluminum Rockhard bumper except with the winch mount on top of the bumper rather than recessed. I don't see why the Roadmaster Master Guardian mounts don't work in the two upper bumper bolts. It will ride higher than it did before and should be above the winch, etc. If still too low you create an adapter which would have a sleeve to fit the Guardian pins in at the top and on the bottom a pin to fit in the Roadmaster Guardian mount. You can angle it to come on the outside of the Winch Guard. If the spacing is off or it doesn't work then perhaps you can contact Rockhard (they seem to be accommodating people) and ask them to make a mount that accepts the two rods on the Guardian, keep it above the recovery shackle tabs and roller fairlead and also will angle it away from the winch guard. You might end up with the Guardian on a slight angle downward which should be helpful in deflecting the stones. They might ask you to send the Guardian mount to them to attach to a custom mount they make utilizing the top two bumper bolts. I would think the cost wouldn't be that much different than your tow bar mounts would be. If you do something with Rockhard let us know I've replaced my windshield on the JK twice already.

It does line up pretty close with that top bolt above the mounts,but i would have to make a stand off somehow since the bolt cant go all the way through the bracket.
IF you have seen the AEV hawse fairlead license plate bracket it lines up perfect. So my idea is to build my own bracket but out of 3/16' or 1/4" steel since the AEV is too thin and make a bracket like the Roadmaster Stowaway and bolt it on.
So in theory i would take my license plate off and bolt the bracket on and i would be ready to roll.
