Again .. I've looked at a variety of posts .. surf'd the eBay, etc ..

I'm look'n at the bug shield .. that item that attaches (?) to the hood??

That's my question.

How does it attach? Tape? Gotta drill holes? Uses existing screw holes?
Any differences in brands (are there different brands)? Any particular brand to get vs (one's not recommended)

btw .. I just got the Armada a week or so ago.

Thanks for your patience ..

I would buy the OEM shield from your dealer. There are no holes to drill, you don't damage the hood or any other part when installing, and you have a perfect fit. I installed mine as soon as I bought my Armada (18k miles ago) and have had no problems.

You might also check out the various clear sheet coatings for the front of the vehicles too. You can't even see them, and they offer great protection. I had a bug shield but got the clear film and it's great. Made by 3m and others.

scr38: Thanks for the recommendation .. I was leaning in that direction. Just trying to gather as much information as possible. I was concerned 'bout having to drill holes into a new truck ..

adjmcloon: Funny you should mention that product. I was looking for a local source and someone who could apply it for my other vehicle (84z31) that I put in shows once-n-awhile. I already have a thicker version of the clear material on my headlights/foglights (of my Z).

Its a great idea .. I'll have to see 'bout get'n the front end of the Armada taken care of .. while it still looks good.

My chrome bug shield used existing holes. If you open the hood and look at the underside you will see several holes where something can attach. It used 3 of them I think....left, right and center.

I had put the Nissan Genuwine bug shield onto my armada about a week ago...

It required no drilling...

Basically it does use 3 holes already drilled in the hood (with an adapter to permit screwing! yippy)... Each place the mounts are placed, 5 total (3 in the front section [Center, Left, Right] and 2 for each side that are pushed on), there are clear strips that you will use to protect the paint. Then once you have it fitted up you place similar 3M clear stripes down under each of the "gumdrop" supports.


It took about 15mins to install...

Hope that Helps

I bought a Lund Interceptor Bug shield...there re no holes to drill and I think it looks great!!! It fits on just like the OEM shield using existing holes in the under part of the hood. There is a little 3M tape that is also used. Fit great and was easy to install. You can look at my pics...yes it's a Titan...but same front end.
