Well to be honest I don't really care for them. I ran a couple on my 1st Rams( 94 & 97 )but then stopped because I didn't really like them and they didn't work as well as advertised( like some here have mentioned ). However, I am going to have to run one on my 07 NBS.
The design of the front of the hood is even taller and more blunt/flat than the GMT800 HD dome style hoods. I know guys who had their NBS this past winter and the front of their hoods took a major beating. I have only had my NBS 2 months and only have a little over 2K on it and already I have 2 chips on the front of my hood. So I will have to run a deflector even if it is JUST to protect the front of the hood.
I will run this one from EGR...
Oh, and ventvisors are a must!

I live in maine and the weather is not that great, my grandfather had a bug guard on his 91 sierra which is still in mint running condition now, and wet leaves and such would get caught under it and it eventually ruined the paint underneath, i would rather just take the 5 minutes to use a little bug remover.

I bought a weathertech bug shield. However, I lost one screw (dropped into the front of the engine compartment) and so the kind folks at weatherguard are sending me a new installation kit. Like a fool, I started up the engine after the screw dropped - but all is well.

i have 2000 Silverado CENTURION addition. it came with all blows and whistles possible at that year, including CENTURION bugshield. i guess it's working awright as a bug shield, but i wouldn't ever call it a rockchip protector, as hood has way too many of those and few nasty ones on the windshield. but lookswise it does add some appeal.
i had rainshileds, or whatever they call those plastic pieces, installed on windows for practicality reasons - leave the windows cracked down, and it cools the car, ventilates it, does not allow moisture to condensate inside, allows nice airflow through the cabin while driving.

I bought the GM color matched bug guard and the $%(#@&$ wouldn't stay on my truck and the engineer who designed it should be shot. I've had two of them and both have parts that GM's supplier screwed up because they wound't thread to save their lives...................... I'm mad...... Screw it i'll just repaint my hood in a few years, good thing my buddies friend owns a Dodge dealership with a body shop!
Anyone else have a problem with GM's bug guard?2007 Z71 crew cab

I have AVS bugshield and ventvisors. I really like both of them. they dont ever fall off, easy to put on, look good and actually work, especially the ventvisors. just my .02PETE
