Took my new 2005 Armada out for a little trip through the mountains this past weekend and it took about 1 hour after I returned to remove all the bug carcassas off the front of the hood.
I'm going to have to invest in a bug guard, no stopping me now,,anyone of you vets have some pictures of the different styles and brand names?,, Looking for the smoked version,, Chrome is a little too flashy for my taste,, and for ease of installation.
Pictures please!!

Thanks a bunch,

BWD

That big flat area at the front of the hood is just waiting to absorb a rock.

Not sure what the sundown supper photo is, but you could string together a half dozen of those between the headlights and have a pretty nice bug shield.

Otherwise, I recommend getting the 3M clear tape. Unobtrusive, works great, and can be removed without damaging the paint.

The bug shield the dealer has is a good one. I have an 05 and I bought mine at the dealer. They are smoke in color and cost about $70.00 but you can find then on the web cheaper. They fit perfect and there is no drilling. I do not get that many bugs that hit the windshield.

Try Lund

I like the one I bought off the net from Lund. It installs easy and looks sharp. :bow:

I also bought the OEM unit. IMO the best way to go.

Got mine from Performance Nissan (www.perfnissan.com) for $60. Since that dealer is close to home (Duarte, CA), I drove over and picked it up, rather than have it shipped. Price at all other dealers in the area was $90. Snap to install (even though two pages of the instructions were missing), and works well. Still not sure about how it looks, but it does the job!

I tried the Lund interceptor, it did not fit well at all. I'll either do the 3M clear hood shield or do the factory bug shield.
