AVS Bugflector Question

My AVS Bugflector II just arrived in the mail. It has some self adhesive 'nubs' I'm supposed to stick to the hood underneath the deflector. Are they absolutely necessary? Or could I maybe stick them to the underside of the deflector instead? Thanks in advance for any input.

I had one on my old Ford Ranger and I'd put them on the truck. Either put them on the truck or don't put them on at all and take your chances. They won't do anything if you just put them on the bug deflector. The rubber nubs, if you just put the on the defector, can still chatter against your paint and wear through it.

I put the rubber nubs on the deflector when i had my old f150. looked good and i had no problems with rubbing, its rare if the bugflector II even comes in contact with your hood aside from where it mounts.

They are pointless. I have the AVS bugflector and the way it installs it doesnt rub the hood. There is plenty of clearance and no need for those bumps. On other vehicles I have installed them because the space between the bugflector and the hood was less than 1/2 inch. But on the Tacoma there is plenty of room.

I put them on the deflector just to be safe back when I had mine.
