    A Putco Element Chrome Bug Shield is the next generation of hood protection. Contours to your truck or suv with a bold look. These chrome hood shields can help keep the road debris from chipping your hood and make your truck look sharp too.

    Of course they don't protect against just rocks, but work to deflect wind and bugs as well of course. Going down the road the airflow is pushed up a little bit, so at highway speeds many smaller objects are now missing your vehicle entirely.

    The Putco Element chrome bug deflectors compliment your oe chrome trim. Putco is the first manufacturer to feature injection molded bug shields for a unique and consistent fit. The Chrome ABS model features 22 hour Cass Chrome plating for a nice and shiny look that will last.

    I had seen my husband admiring this on line. I was nervous about surprising him with this as he is not very mechanical and I was wondering about the added expense to have installed. He was so happy when I gave to him And he put it on himself! He had been talking about trading in his truck but he is satisfied now with his new look!

    Looks good, but was not able to install it. About half of the hardware was missing and no parts list and no installation instructions.
    Beautiful, but incredibly difficult to install.

    It was supposed to take 10-15 minutes to install, but that was not the case. The instructions were no help at all. My friend and I gave up after trying to install it for over 1.5 hours. I took the piece to a body shop where two guys there spent over 2 hours installing it and had to resort to brute force in the process. Although a beautiful accessory, I would not recommend buying this piece. The manufacturer needs to do some work on how to ease installation.
