    I have a 2011 F-450 and have noticed rock chips in front of each rear fender. Is there anything on the market to prevent the rock chips from ruining the finish ?

    3M makes a clear film that you apply to the offended area to prevent rock chips.

    Yes! I have the same problem even with Duraflaps on the front. My body shop man said the 3M film would be difficult to lay decent on the curve of the fender. I had one fender redone due to a scrape, and he used more flex agent in the paint. It seems to hold up better, although it still has some chips in it. If you try the 3M stuff, I would be eager to see how it turns out. :sweet

    I recall Big Joe said his full length running boards were the best medicine on his '02 dually?
