bug / stone shield
 
Hi All,
My 2012 is basically my snow mobile in the winter months, no off roading here. A large portion of my daily commute is highway and they are resurfacing the road in segments. I've already gone through one windshield (on my one year anniversary of course) from a rock and I'm getting pelted by bugs and small stones everyday. Do the bug shields actually work? Or is it just a dressy piece? Any one have pics of one installed?

Thanks,
RP

From my experience, it will only help to keep the corner of your hood free from rock chips and bugs. I don't think they do anything to protect the windshield.

I've never tried it but it will probably work better at highway speeds because of the speed of the air deflection.

I got a cracked windshield with my OEM bug shield. It however protects the edge of the hood which is very weak.
