Which is best rock guard for tow vehicle (Ram 1500) pulling Escape 21?

Looking for the best rock guard for my pickup used to pull our Escape 21. Lots of gravel travel and making ready for the Alcan Highway this summer. Any suggestions appreciated.

If you got the front storage box, it and some mud flaps on your tow should handle the issue.

I'm currently using the standard Ford mudflaps on my F150. No rock damage so far to the front of our 5.0TA. However, I would want something more for a trip to Alaska.

This looks like an interesting product: Why Towtector Instead Of A Regular Mud Flap?

Towtector is expensive, but perhaps it works well. I don't have any first hand experience with this product. Perhaps there are other similar products that are cheaper.

Going to Alaska this is a must. Check out the ones on Etrailer, they have several to chose from but around the same price range

Great Rock Guards!


Here is a product I have used for hauling my trailer and boat. They are solid and adjustable. Well worth the $$. In Canada also available at Auto Parts suppliers, Costco, Canadian Tire and of course - Amazon

If you don't want to spend the money for the expensive mud flaps, I've read on a different forum that yoga mats taped to the front of the trailer are very effective. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B007MTZDAO...v_ov_lig_dp_it
