    Review & Installation Video

    Review & Install Video

    I'm Ryan from ExtremeTerrain.com and this is my review and installation of the Rugged Ridge bug deflector in matte black, fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs. Today we're going to go over the construction of this bug deflector, and, of course, the installation. First and foremost, a bug deflector is designed to deflect wind up over the windshield of the front of your Jeep, allowing small stones and bugs to be deflected with that wind and not end up splattered on your windshield. Now, how much aerodynamic change you actually get from a bug deflector is certainly for debate. A lot of people will install these because either they like the look, and it definitely changes the look of the front of your Jeep, or because they have some damage on that leading edge of their hood that they're looking to cover up, or they want to protect it from damage. The leading edge is certainly a magnet for stone-throws, so if you have some damage and you don't want to get the metal and paint repaired, this is going to be a much less expensive way of making that repair or, as I mentioned, some people just like the look of these bug deflectors. This bug deflector is made of an acrylic material, which is really the traditional material for a bug deflector. It's going to be strong but also a little bit flexible. Of course, this has the matte black finish which makes it look really nice with either the matte black window visors or just as a standalone accent piece on the front of your Jeep. Now, this has a couple of tabs molded onto the back of it. These ones here on the outside are designed to put a screw into to hold it onto the underside of the hood. And these, of course, have 3M adhesive pre-applied on them to make the installation really secure. Now even though there are a couple of screws that hold this into place, there's no drilling required with this installation. You'll just be using some J-nuts in existing holes that are already in the hood. So speaking of the installation, it's going to be really simple for this part. All you need to do is first clean the underside of the hood where that 3M adhesive is going to attach. Using an alcohol prep pad or a good alcohol-based cleaner will be plenty to get that area clean. After that, you can install the J-nuts in the existing square holes on the underside of your hood. Make sure the bug deflector lines up properly and is nice and square and exactly where you like it. Then peel off the red backing on the 3M tape and press it into place. Finally, you'll use the screws and washers that come in the hardware package with the bug deflector to attach the two outer tabs into those J-nuts that you just installed. The whole installation process shouldn't take you more than a half hour and you won't need any specialty tools, just a good cleaner and a Phillips-head screwdriver. I find that a lot of visual modifications that are well-built and fit well will come in right around the $100 mark, and that's exactly where you're going to be for this bug deflector. So, if you want the visual modification and you like the way this looks, or you want to protect or cover up damage that's existing on your hood and you have $100 to spend, I think this is a nice piece. It's very well-built and it'll fit really well. So, whether you're looking to protect the leading edge of your hood, cover up existing damage, or you want the wind deflection over the windshield to keep bugs from splattering on it, this is going to be a really nice addition to your Jeep. So that's my review of the Rugged Ridge bug deflector in matte black, fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs, that you can find right here at ExtremeTerrain.com.

    My Smitty Built Defender roof rack makes wind noise. Would this help stop that or make it worse being that it goes over the windshield?

      This works PERFECTLY!!

      I drove around for a few months without it. I tried rain x and several other things to prevent bugs from sticking and that was a no do. I hated the bugs sticking and not coming off completely with windshield wipers. I put this sweeeeeeet thing on my Jeep with no problems at all. It keep 90 of the bugs off my window or/and from sticking. How do people live without this I have no idea.

      Bug Deflector Matte

      I absolutely love this bug shield. I bought it for my Jeep Wranger and I absolutely love how it looks. I am a single female and was able to install this within about 5 minutes on my own. Only issue I had is I’m short so it was a stretch for me to do with the hood of the Jeep open but I got her done.

      Rugged Ridge Bug Deflector

      This bug deflector looks great. It stops bug from about halfway up the windshield to the bottom. It does deflect the wiper spray at highway speeds, but the tradeoff is worth it. I would recommend it.

      No more Bug splatter

      Nice product and certainly helps keep the windshield clean when rolling down the highway. It does change the air flow off the hood a bit and have noticed more antenna shake, so a nice short antenna will be next replacement.
