    I have visors on my windows and sunroof. I also have bug guard on the hood.

    The bug guard doesn't work too well because it is not taller than the top of the hood. That's because of my truck's "power dome" hood (is that standard on the HD trucks?). Bugs still hit my windshield. Anyway, I didn't want to return it because of the 15% restock fee that truckaddons.com charges.

    I'm glad my Summit White truck has enough "classy" black plastic all around (door handles, bumper trim, side view mirrors, etc) so the bug guard and the visors blend in.

    I have a bug guard/deflector as well but as many have said it doesn't do much although it does keep the front edge of the hood clear from rock chips and thats about it....

    I have mine on my truck to protect the front of the hood. I don't think it does a very good job of keeping the bug of the windshield. I will be taking it off once I finish my new bumper/grill guard. I don't think the two look good together.

    I have a black Lund model on mine. Pretty good against the "love bugs" here in Fl!

    Im thinking of getting one on my 07 classic silverado but im having trouble deciding chrome or black... i plan on getting the chrom door and tailgate handle covers, and i have already got the 3rd brake light cover but the chrome looked tacky so i painted it black looks awesome. I think GM should make those a stock accesory and have the body colors. Ill take some pics and post maybe on the weekend.. besides those mods, im thinking of a chrome billet grille or the GM acessory grille, and that SHOULD be it:P

    that was the first thing i did when i got my truck. went out and put on a bug shield and window vents. I must say window vents have to be one of the best things you can put on your truck. I never put my window up all of the way and it keeps it half way cool in the hot weather

    Your right I like those vent shades they let you crack the window without blowing your head off on hwy
