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 Bugflector II Hood Shield is one of the best-selling automotive products in North America because it's so effective at both tasks.

The Bugflector II's high profile, wraparound aerodynamic design will provide full protection and will perfectly complement your truck, van, SUV, or crossover vehicle's appearance. The Bugflector II 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 the off-the-hood design enables you to keep your vehicle clean and waxed easily.

Cleaning the Bugflector II is easy with soap and water, and cleaning solvents or other chemical products should not be used. The Bugflector II 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.

Review Update
AVS® - Bugflector II™ Dark Smoke Hood Shield
I got this installed on my 2017 F150, but I had to get new hardware to make it work. If you go to AutoZone, and get some 1/4" nylon clips (part #479700) and trim screws (part #455770), it is MUCH easier to get this to work. You'll have to drill out 4 of the factory holes to 1/4", but if you aren't opposed to that, pop the new clips in after you drill out the holes, line up the deflector, and put the screws through the holes in the weatherstripping and deflector. They thread in those clips easily and securely. Once I found that method (someone on Amazon came up with this solution), I had it on in 45 minutes or so. Bug deflector itself is pretty good quality, but the hardware that comes with it is pretty much useless. Follow the above method and things will go much easier.

The hardware that comes with this is absolute JUNK. The plastic clips do NOT fit the pre-drilled holes in the hood, even completely tightened. Also, the tabs on the bug shield itself are too long and do not properly fit the hood. Instructions are printed in a tiny font that is very difficult to read. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS.

Easy to install. Fits perfectly.

Bought this for a trip from Connecticut to Florida. First, all of the installation pushpins are way too short for a raptor. Went out and bought some and the install was fine except for the clear rubber cushions which appeared to do nothing. Installed anyway. On the way, had a rock thrown up and hit and cracked the windshield. Now, I know they are not designed for stones but the ford one on my F350 has deflected stones up and down the coast for 5 years now. This is a brand new 2018 Raptor now with a cracked windshield.
