As you drive down the highway, the front of your Jeep is constantly being sandblasted by a combination of rocks, stones and debris picked up by the wind and thrown up by the tires of other vehicles. Look at the leading edge of the hood on any road warrior Jeep and you'll see numerous paint chips and dings.

Install this Hood Bug Deflector and you can protect your hood from this type of damage, preserving its appearance and your Jeep's resale value. And along with protecting your hood, the shape of the deflector will redirect the airflow as it goes over the hood, carrying most insects away from your windshield. This can be especially helpful at night in the summertime, when insects can swarm so thickly that your driving vision can be affected.

To make sure you get many years of service from this bug deflector, Rugged Ridge made it from durable, shatter resistant acrylic, and gave it a smoked finish that will complement the exterior of any Jeep. Depending on model, this deflector installs with 3M double sided tape and/or screws, and some drilling may be required. The Hood Bug Deflector is backed by a 5-year limited warranty.

Rugged Ridge® is a division of Omix-Ada, the leader in Jeep replacement parts. Based in Suwanee, Georgia, Rugged Ridge was begun almost two decades ago when the enthusiasts at Omix-Ada decided that even a vehicle as tough as a Jeep could be improved upon. Since then, Rugged Ridge has created over 500 accessories to improve your Jeep’s performance, utility and appearance. Unlike parts made for ordinary vehicles, Rugged Ridge knows that every part made for a Jeep must uphold the Jeep tradition of strength and capability, so every part is designed, tested, manufactured and tested again to make sure it’s perfected. Then and only then can it be installed on your Jeep.

What a 'Bugger!'
Bug deflector looks real nice once I was able to install it on my 2013 Jeep Sport. Screws that came with product did not want to go through the metal, so I got my own self tapping screws to do the job, and all was good. Love it and it looks great.
