Caliper Protection

Has anyone built something to act as a rear caliper skid plate? I had my second ripped-off-caliper in the rocks today and am getting pretty tired of it. They stick so far in with a 3.38" backspace.

I'm well aware that wider axles is the "real" solution to this, but I'm not upgrading axles just because my calipers stick in a little too far.

Fab up a new caliper mount that sits on top of the rotor. Might have to adjust the rear bias down a bit with a proportional valve.
