I washed up the X today and noticed how bad the hood and windshield is getting from the highway driving. I'm thinking about that bugshield thing that goes on the front of the hood. Would it look ok on an X? And also, does it work/help at all? Thanks for the help......

personally, i dont really like those bugsield. i think it makes the truck look like a work truck.

how bout using one of those hood bra? you can put it on when you drive on the feeway, then take it off on the weekend when you wanna show off your truck.

....just my opinion.

Those bug shields really are hard on the paint and metal of your hood. Debris gets behind them and causes the metal to rust and the paint gets all scratched up because they do flex and move at highway speeds. They do work but I would stay clear of them. The bra is a much better option. But don't get a cheap one cause they will scratch your paint too.

Drop the bra, drop the bugshield. You can buy a transparent vinyl sticker (that's cheaper, and it doesn't show!) that will do a great job of saving your paint!

Just say no to bugshields.......I think they make the x go from a show looking truck to something that just a regular person drives but thats just my opinion
