    x2, if the water is over the grille, there's not a whole lot you can do about it.

    Sometimes when I take my dog for a walk and I step in his poop I get it on my shoe. What can I do to stop the poop from getting on my shoe?

    I am developing a poop shield that mounts to the side of your shoe. It will deflect the poop away from your shoe.. of course the poop will now hit your leg.

    If I can get 100 orders, we'll do a group buy :p

    perfect. Let me know when you have this in production. I will grab the first one off the line.

    ...now if only we could adapt this same logic to preventing water from hitting your windshield when driving through deep water we could solve the OP's issue...I dont think its possible though.

    What about coming up with some sort of motorized squeegie type arm that wipes water off your windshield?

    or maybe something that you put on your windshield that as soon as water hits it, it beads up and flys off real fast

    Instead of a brush guard just put a snow plow on the front of your truck.

    lol then you have to worry about people going through the windshield when the plow hits the water. We also need to develop some sort of "people going through windshield" inhibitor. Maybe some sort of woven canvas strap that keeps people in their seat. It would keep them strapped in. The need to be able to remove it though....Brainstorming time!

    Idk how many of you have seen dirt oval cars but you could always just do what they do for wind shields...just a piece of 18"x18"x1/2" plexy in front of your face and thats it. lol some even just have a piece of mesh to catch the mud.
