I installed OEM bug deflector yesterday. Here are my opinion on it:
Scale from 1 to 10

Fit: 9

Look: 8 because of the screws. You can see the screws from outside. It will be a 10 if they some how design to hide the screws.

Installation: 8 Easy to install but the instruction a bit confussion.

Ease of use: 6 The Clear rubber pieces under the bug reflector make it hard to clean/dry the hood space between the bug reflector and the hood. It is hard to to take out and clean the hood and install it back in if you have to.


Over all, it has a good look costmetic design but bad engineer design.

Tyltan,

Thanks for the review. Good job. I have been wanting one, but hadn't heard how people liked them.

Thanks again and if you have any other reviews please post them the same way. I like how you broke it down by category.

Thanks

I have the same one and I agree fully with the review post. To clean beneath the bug shield I use a baby bottle brush with soft bristles. It usually doesn't get very dirty under it.

Yo hold a minute does that thing screw into the hood. Or is that my eyes playing tricks on me. I swear the screws look like they go straight into the hood. Please tell me they don't.

They screwed in the bracket that "hooked" into the hood. There are clear plastics adhesive between the provided bracket and the hood.

Try to find the after market bug reflector which does not expose the screws. I don't think I can return me since I installed it already

I thought there was a company that made one of these things that bolted to the underside of the hood so the only thing sticking out on the outside of the hood was the deflector itself?

Just got a Lund deflector as an anniversary present. Will install when the weather warms up next week. Attaches under the hood, so no visible screws. $58.50 at an accessory warehouse. Corner auto parts store may have it for less. Will post pictures when completed.

Careful ordering from e-bay. I know someone that got the one there for 40 some dollars and it is real flimsy. It is taking his paint off in the middle of the hood from when it flexes in at high speeds.

I've had my OEM deflector on for a couple months now. It is holding up fine. I'm glad I got it.

I had an OEM deflector on my Pathfinder...it cracked after about a year. Maybe just luck of the draw? Not too impressed with that. I've also had a Lund on my old 3/4 Diesel, still going strong after 8 years or so. Went with another Lund for the new Titan.
