Bug deflectors create a streamlined jet of air that diverts bugs away from your vehicle, preventing a gooey, caked-on mess…and the resulting paint damage. Available in a couple main varieties, bug deflectors can be found in a lower, compact design for a more subtle appearance as well as a higher-rising version for extra defense.
One of the most functional and time-saving accessories you’ll ever find, Lund deflectors, Weathertech visors for trucks and similar aftermarket bug deflectors are built from impact-resistant acrylic, which never rusts, corrodes or oxidizes. The sturdy design is even able to deflect a moderate amount of flying rocks and road debris
Installing Your Bug Deflector
- Always start any exterior upgrade by washing your vehicle. For this installation, pay extra attention to the area along the front of the hood where the shield will be installed. If you don't have time to wash your entire vehicle, make sure that, at the very least, this area is clean and dry.
- Next, set out all the mounting hardware and measure the width of the shield to determine where to install the mounting hardware. Doing so in advance will ensure that your bug shield is centered on the hood of your vehicle.
- Attach the mounting hardware as shown in your kit’s instructions, clamping down the support brackets onto the hood of your vehicle.
- Finally, mount the bug shield to the support brackets by either screwing it into place or using the clips and push-rivets, depending on the method specific to your particular kit.
