|You would think this would be straight forward enough to install. On un wrapping the product the first thing that jumped out at me being a quality manager was the lack of chrome coverage on the underside of the part. large spots were missing coverage. Being on the underside in all fairness it is not visible however it is leading me to believe if peeling will begin in those spots and continue to the face of the deflector when the wind will make short work of it. Time will tell! |
On another issue that I hope to save another buyer some time is the direction are clear enough except they are missing one important footnote. After mounting the deflector in the assigned hole locations and with the supplied rinky dink attachment screws it looked good until I went to shut the hood! The hood would not latch to matter how hard I tried. Something was not right. My first thought was the deflector was made wrong because it was bottoming out right at the curve of the defector but after further investigation it turned out that on my 2013 RAM their was a hood seal from the factory that was acting as a spacer. I had to remove the deflector which ruined two of the four rinky dink mounting screws and then remove the factory seal. I reused two of the factory seal mounting hardware to re attach the deflector and all was good. A little footnote in the instruction noting the presence of the hood seal and the removal will be necessary would certainly have saved some aggravation. Now that it is on it does work and look great hence the 4 stars. Only time will tell if it begins to peel. Ron Syracuse NY
|It took all of about 15 minutes to install the Bug Shield and it looks great on my 2013 GMC Z71|
|Everything went well but I don't like the way it forms to the sides of the hood it looks more like wind deflector than a bug shield.|
|This product really adds to the "sex appeal" of my truck! I have had so many compliments on it! Its extremely well made, and easy to install in minutes!|
|Fit's like a charm. Goes real well with Silverado truck,check it out.|
|I recently purchased an item from Real Truck, and had to return later because I changed mind on the vehicle I purchased. Real Truck gave me exceptional customer service and understood the product. It was a very smooth return.|
|Bug Shield was very easy to install. Curious how good the rubber compression washers will hold tight in the holes in the hood. Only time will tell. So far after 2 months they appear to be good.|
|Good price and looks good|
|Installation of Chrome Bug Shield was very easy to complete. The look of the product on the truck looks great. The cost was inexpensive versus the benefits to stone chips / dents on the hood. I would recommend everyone purchase this product and install when the vehicle is new to prevent the chips / dents. Unfortunately, I did not do this and had to repair multiple paint chips and accept the dents. There is only one small concern noted with this product installed. I did notice that on the expressway at the speed limit you do get some noise from the passenger side wiper movement from the change in air flow over hood. I would recommend the manufacturer review this in future improvements.|
