You have a big shiny hood on that truck. Keep it looking nice with an Element bug shield from Putco. A bug shield helps push the flow of wind a little higher on your vehicle, which protects you from the smaller elements such as rocks and other highway gunk. It of course also helps collect bugs, keeping them off your hood, making it a bit easier to clean. While it is an option to save the bug goo, we do recommend cleaning it periodically and returning the bug deflector to its natural shiny state.

The Element hood shields complement the Putco Element window visors for a complete look. The tinted appearance helps blend right into your vehicle for a more subtle finish. Putco is the first manufacturer to feature injection molded bug shields for a unique and consistent fit. The smoke model features tinted polycarbonate material that will stand up to anything thrown at it.
