A well-designed bug deflector hood shield protects your vehicle in two ways: First, it shields the leading edge of your hood and fenders from stones and other debris borne by the wind or thrown up by other vehicles, keeping your hood and fenders free of dings, dents and chipped paint. Second, the lip of the shield redirects airflow enough to propel bugs and debris up and over your vehicle, instead of crashing and splattering into your windshield, preserving and maintaining your visibility and keeping your windshield free of chips and scratches. The Hoodflector Hood Shield is one of the best-selling automotive products in North America because it’s so effective at both tasks.

The Hoodflector is the low profile version of the AVS Bugflector II. It’s designed for those who want a sleeker, more aerodynamic appearance while still gaining protection from bugs, stones and debris. The Hoodflector is custom designed to perfectly match the contours of your hood and front fenders and be aerodynamically efficient. It's made of rugged impact modified acrylic which is virtually indestructible, so you’ll get many years of protection, and installs simply and quickly with 3M double-sided tape and/or mechanical fasteners, depending on application. Once installed, you’ll find that the included rubber bumpers will keep the shield from contacting the body, to protect the paint finish, and if cleaning is necessary the shield can be easily removed.

The dark smoke finish of the Hoodflector will make it an attractive addition to your vehicle. It’s car wash safe; however automatic “brush-style” car washes should be avoided. Cleaning the shield is easy with soap and water, and cleaning solvents or other chemical products should not be used. The Hoodflector comes with everything required for installation, including hardware and detailed instructions, and it’s covered by a limited lifetime warranty against defects in materials and workmanship. The warranty applies to the original purchaser as long as he or she owns the vehicle on which the product is installed.

AVS® is the innovator of the auto Ventshade, first produced in 1935 to mount above a car window to keep rain out and let fresh air in. In testimony to its effectiveness, the Ventshade is still manufactured by AVS today, albeit in a much more modern form. The company also manufactures a wide range of other Ventvisor/side window deflectors along with hood/windshield protectors and vehicle styling/protective accessories. In 1998 AVS was acquired by prominent truck accessory manufacturer Lund International, and today is one of that company’s leading brands. AVS products are precision engineered and crafted from the finest materials right here in the USA.

Bug Guard for RAM 1500
The photo on the CARiD website showed two options, one that was much smaller and stopped at the hood and one that extended to cover the headlights. I wanted the smaller version and ordered that because I feared the large one would overpower the visual appearance. After opening the box I noticed the bug guard was actually the larger version. The paperwork was correct, but the website photo was not. I realize its not uncommon to show images of different vehicles and sometimes stock photos of items, so I'm guessing this happened in this case. Fortunately I thought I'd see if I disliked the longer version as much as I anticipated, but after holding it against the black hood, the smokey guard basically disappeared. So I'm happy with the error. In all - I've ordered several items from CARiD and I know they would have immediately returned the item if I wanted. They are most helpful and I've been very happy dealing with them and have recommended them to friends.
