Front Air Deflector/Bug Shield

Anyone have any pictures of the Mopar Black Bug Defelctor. I know this sounds silly, but I would like to see what one looks like installed. I have seen the pictures of the chrome one, but I would be getting the black. Thanks in advance.....

bug Shield?

The day after I purchased my Commander I drove to Arkansas (7 hours away). I had a HUGE amount of bugs on my windshield, and I had to stop every so often just to clean the glass. Are there any bug shields that look decent for a Commander?

Thanks!

The bug shields don't really work all that well. The dirty windshield is just one of the things you have to put up with on the Commander -- the windshield is very vertical.

Re: Bug Deflector
That's a good one. The bug deflector was one of the first thnings I put on my hemi commander and let me tell you, keep bugs off the windshield it does not. What it does do very well is protect the leading edge and adjacent angle portion of the hood from direct impact from rocks and bugs. That's why I got mine....to protect the paint. plus it looks cool too!

Re: So does every bug on the highway..
I have a bug shield on my Commander, and I can tell you that it doesn't help at all. I had a Grand Cherokee before my Commander, and never had any problems with bugs, but now with the Commander I feel like I own a bug magnet.

Being from Boston, we get our fare share of bugs in the summer, so I'm guessing it's going to be something I'll have to deal with.

So i guess the real question is..

What does everyone use to clean their bug guts? Cause my windshield cleaner doesn't do a very good job...

They need to make something that just dissolves the guts away on cantact....
