Around here, the only way you don't get rock chips is if you drive slow and give other driver's tons of space. There's construction everywhere, a myriad of lifted trucks with no mudflaps, and not a lot of bumper to bumper traffic outside of rush hour. So you tend to be moving at a good pace. But the only car we haven't had an issue with is our X5, and that car is a few inches higher and has plastic lower valances so pretty easy to stay clean.

Although I can't believe your other comment. I've spent a lot of time in NJ and refuse to believe that someone lives there and isn't an aggressive driver
