Default Stone/Rock Chip Protection

I just recently bought another Jeep just like the old one I had. On my old Jeep I used a plastic paint to paint the bumpers and side moldings black I then used a 3M spray, I think it was called "chip stop" or "rock stop" something along those lines. My problem is I don't have anymore and can't seem to find it. Anyone have and good ideas on what would work to to protect the spray paint from rock chips and what not. I had my Jeep for a while and the spray held up and improved the look tremendously also I'm trying not to spend to much I only paid 3k for the thing and not wanting to dump a ton of money into it.

3M makes "clear bras" that are supposed to be awesome. I have some on the rear quarters of my new car and it is indeed, awesome. A shop will charge you an arm and a leg (like, $1,200) to install one, but they sell precut kits on eBay. Check those out.

Another option is that vinyl wrap. It won't be clear, but it's the same concept. It comes in sheets. Heat gun, razor knife and a few hours and you have custom paint protection. It's pretty cheap too.

The first one is a film which is not what I want to do at all, and I'm not to sure on the wrap Not sure how well in would contour to my front and rear bumper.

I'm looking for more of a spray on type of thing, maybe like a good clear urethane or something along those lines maybe.
