I used to be a big fan of Lund bug guards, Had one on both of my old Fords, and one on my gen I Tacoma. I ordered a lund interceptor for my 07 painted to match the truck. 1. The paint was at least two shades off, and it was not a complete wrap, there were openings just off of the center where apparently Lund could not manage to get it to fit tight enough to the truck, so A. it let bugs through those openings, and B. it whistled something fierce at highway speed, so off it came again, and I think for now I will leave the nose bare, and just wash and wax regularly.
Though for what it's worth I really like Flyman's hood guard
, and may look into that for myself.
By the way, Flyman, would you be able to take a pic of the underside of your hood to show the mounting hardware?
