In the market for one since I want to stop from getting more rock chips than I already have. What brand/model is everyone running? Found a few on Amazon that I like and just need opinions.

Truck is a 2012 Silverado LT

This is the one I have in my cart at the moment...

So does anyone have one that fits better? mounts better? more solid? Would like to get one put on before the snow and the state starts dropping the rock salt down. Thanks in advance!

People run them. I'm sure people think they are ugly. I don;t mind them and like to protect my paint more so than a strip of 3m going over some already present rock chips.

50" curved light bar in front of hood; problem solved and IG status +1million points.
+2bajillion if it has a halo inside blocking diode reflectors.

Ive ran them on my trucks except my 04. They do help keep stone chips abit but not much. Moreso for the front of the hood.

The AVS units are typically good.

ok boss, keep acting like you got it figured out. Makes your thread pretty pointless, especially when you believe a strip of plastic is gonna fix all of your rock problems.
well "boss" I never said its going to fix all my rock problems. I asked which model people were using, not IF people were using one. But when my hood is chipped up slightly already, then I believe it would make sense to protect that part, on a black truck, with (in my opinion, even though it clashes with your opinion and that makes my opinion wrong according to the internet) a rock/bug guard.

But since in your opinion they are stupid and ugly, you must have it figured out for everyone else and that means there is no reason that any company produced them.


Thank you to those who have actually responded with intent to help, not be a truck styling god that rules all.

Go with AVS. They're priced well with good quality. Just don't get chrome.
