How about trying the clear bra vinyl that is used for the front of vehicles. Just get one cut to the size of the tailgate.

Wouldn't a set of mud flaps cut down on the risk of stones hitting the tailgate?

This is what I was thinking, but I also like the Macguyver solutions.

I suppose if you're looking for a reliable stone chip preventer, you could look at towing shields like a "Towtector' or "Rock Tamers' skirts/flaps. Not pretty, but effective. They're removable, which is a bonus. If you have dual exhaust they may not work.
