    I've taken mine through a wash several times and no issue. Here's a pic, I know some don't like bug deflectors but I like the look of it and it really does help in summer.

    EGR Aerowrap for me. Love it. Looks great IMO. Check my build link below for pics.

    VERY low profile, which I like.

    Does anyone know how well the AVS or WeatherTech deflectors handle rocks? I am more concerned with reducing paint and windshield damage from road gravel kicked up in winter time.

    Glad I found the comments here on the OEM deflector damaging your hood, I was going to pick one up later this week...

    x2 I as well am glad that I found comments on the OEM. I was so close to ordering one. I did see one on a truck today and could'nt beleave that they would have you mounting it to the hood that way.
