Chrome is the most classic looking finish you can get for your vehicle and RealTruck is happy to carry Stampede Chrome hood deflectors. Engineered with an extremely aerodynamic reverse flip, the Stampede Chrome bug deflector's main job is to protect your hood and windshield from bugs and small debris like rocks. No one likes getting chips on their truck or SUV, and getting a deflector is a great way to cut down on those little annoyances in life.
Stampede's Chrome shields are made from impact resistant acrylic. They're then put through a wet electroplating process to get their chrome finish. This is the same process manufacturers use on the trim pieces your vehicle currently sports. By their very nature, they're UV resistant and made to sparkle and glisten in the sun's rays like a diamond.
The form fitting design is standard for each Chrome deflector ordered as they are made to fit the year, make, and model of your particular ride. Because they mold perfectly to each dip, curve and swoop of your shield, you get an OE look and a product that performs well.
These bug shields mount in a variety of ways - in front of the grille, behind the grille, or under the hood. Stampede has made sure that each hood shield can be easily mounted at home without any drilling or cutting. Easy to follow instructions are included along with any needed hardware.

|I put this one my ingot silver 2015 Ford F-150 XLT that has the factory chrome package. It absolutely looks great on the truck. But, I don't know that I would do it again. The problem is with installation. The four plastic anchors that go into the underside of the hood did not really secure well. The instructions say to tighten those screws but not to over-tighten. I never could get three of them to really tighten at all. In addition to these there are two strong metal clips that go to the outside of the hood, one on each side. It appears to me that these two clips do the majority of securing the shield to the vehicle. These clips slide over the edge of the hood including the outside front. They are strong spring metal. Before sliding the clips onto the hood there are two pieces of clear vinyl or plastic tape that is applied to the hood to protect the hood. The clips are then slid over the tape onto the edge of the hood. Again, these clips are super tight and strong. It took a good deal of effort to "slide" them over the hood edge on the tape. I had to tap the back of them with a small mallet. On one of them I can see where the tape tore under the clip as it slid on. That probably means I have clip metal to damaged paint or (worse) clip metal to aluminum contact. What to do? I could take the clip off but the damage is done. Plus, I don't have any more of the tape. I'm going to leave the shield in place for now, but I don't think I've saved myself any damage to the hood -- just caused it. I'll just have to keep an eye on it.|
The primary reason I put this shield on to protect the hood from rock chips. In retrospect, I may be repainting the hood at some point anyway due to damage from the clips. We'll see how it goes . . .
|Looks great ! People think it is "factory". I completed the install myself, with all original Ford rubber seals still there. Web vids did not help, since did not show 2016 Ford installation. Recommend having a second set of hands to help, take your time, you will be happy with the results !|
