    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.

      Rugged Ridge Review.

      Very easy and quick installation. Great product. The Matte Black looks food with the flat black trim on the jeep. The Rugged Ridge Bug Deflector is great. It is an extremely thick plastic. It is very strong and has very little give or flex to it. Because of this feature it really aids in throwing bugs and road debris up over the windshield. And everyone with a jeep knows the problems with the vertical windshield.(Chips, Cracks). This Rugged Ridge Bug Deflector really helps and works. And it looks great on the jeep, and dosen't take away from the look of the jeep. I highly Recommend. I'm very happy with the product.

      Works as described

      Very easy install, does a good job, although there is a little more noise in the front seat. . .I can only guess it's because of an increase in flow over the windshield. Other than that, it looks great with the matte black on my Anvil jeep.

      Awesome Addition

      I live in southern Florida, so this was a must add after several road trips where my windshield got caked with bugs. This took about 5 minutes to put on, looks clean, and matches well with the other textured accents on the Jeep.

      The rugged ridge bug deflector fits perfect and looks great on my anvil grey JK, I recommend the matte black as it blends in perfect with the mirrors and fender flares.

      Excellent and affordable protection for your Jeep!

      This is a great and affordable purchase/investment to protect your Jeep's front hood from bugs and rocks that chip away your paint. It helps deflect flying road debris from the windshield as well. The sleak and aerodynamic design reduces wind drag at the high speeds. I have the flat black gladiator grille and so this combines perfectly making the overall ppearance more robust! Very easy to install!
