I will soon be replacing a broken headlight on my 4Runner and would like to invest in some headlight protection as well. I communte 50 miles each way to work and the local highway department is notorious for using gravel on icy roads. I would like to get some feedback regarding headlight rock protection, patricularly the clear plastic covers. So far I have found the hard plastic covers as show below
And the thin film ones.
Does anybody have any experience with these? For just a little bit more in price, I am leaning towards the hard plastic ones.
