I agree with the bull bar lovers. But in this case, the truck looks much cleaner with the big shield and without the bull bar. I say you keep the bug shield, remove the bull bar and donate it to me!

I think, honestly that there are more "off-road enthusiasts" here. Bull bars are not designed for abuse- they make a great place to put some fog lamps and dress up the front. Personally, I really like the look- my truck only goes off road 2-3 times a year, and it's not like I'm climbing rocks... but I will say that I took mine off and the bumper is really messed up. Dirt and debris gets between the bar and bumper and with vibration, it really did a number on the front bumper. I liked the look, but I won't put it back on now. I'm gonna use my satoshi and buy some fogs to go behind it.

Can't decide if it looks more like a #9 or #10 but either way it's a lot better than a lot of others I've seen. And in Georgia you need it, so keep it on if you like it.

Never cared for the Bull Bar; however I love my Weathertech Bug Shield. It's saved the leading edge of the hood and winshield too. The Bull Bar belongs on a locomotive or something parked at Vauto Zone.

i say keep it. i worked at a car wash in high school and that rounded part of your hood that it protects, is where I saw the most damage to paint on any car. look at older cars they are just chipped away and think that is thick metal with prob more layers of paint.

Thumbs up

Form over function is a losing proposition.

Keep the bug shield, it works to keep your vehicle less splattered.
