Pros: Jeep branded, protects from of hood and grill from small rocks and "bug juice"
Cons: Make sure to keep it clean underneath!
Comments: I like the looks and if you're ON the road more than off with your Jeep, I'd recommend this. If you're Jeep is only for fun in the dirt, don't do it.
The front of the Jeep is very flat so bugs tend to splat A LOT against the grill and leading edge of the hood (and windshield but we can't cover that can we).
The one thing to be absolutely sure of is when you're installing this, be sure the area underneath is very clean. This with dirt underneat will become instant sandpaper. So also take it off when off roading, and clean well before re-attaching. My JK is a daily driver, so this is a nice addition for most of the time. When fun times are to be had, this comes off in a matter of minutes.
Installation takes 10 minutes or so for both pieces. It's not hard. Some hooks mainly with a large strap going to the center footman on the hood.
