How big? I don't like the looks of one that run all the way across the back truck.

I dont like the looks of them either, but you have no choice if you want to protect your trailer. You could install one that can be easily removed for when your not towing though.

Duro Flap is a good quality and can be made to easily remove. I have a smaller set from Dodge on my truck and stone shields on the trailer. Stone shields will protect the skin and windows. I have a 2002 Classic and the shields are Dark Plexiglass.

My brother has a set of "Rock Tamers" on this truck. On a recent hunting trip to Canada he said they did a terrific job of protecting the trailer he was pulling.

My truck has a set of factory mudflaps which do a good job of protecting the truck and I made a large single type that is removable from the truck as seen in the picture below.

I made mine.They are 2 quarter fender flaps off a big truck,I picked up at my local Fruehuf Semi-trailer dealer. 2 peices of 1 1/2 inch aluminum angle I got at the local recycling yard and some 1/4x20 x2 bolts,flat washers and plastic insert nuts. The angle are slid into the open ends of the hitch and pulled toward each other with a heavy duty tarp strap. I can take them off,but never do. I keep them on cause those big rear wheels tend to throw stones or gravel onto those who follow at 10 feet ,if you know what I mean.

Thanks everyone for the response. I guess I'll have to make up my mind as to what kind and how big.
