Who makes this bug deflector?!?

Hopefully the picture shows but I found a big deflector that doesn't look half bad IMO. Wanted to see who made it and how much it costs.

If you're talking about the piece on the hood, it's made by bush whacker(sp?).

Bingo thanks a lot. I would never if guessed wild boar. I like the look. Aggressive and I haven't seen it around my neck if the woods.

Will have to give them a ring to see if they have any canadian vendors.

I have never seen this grill before, looking at their website it says it "dramitically" increase air flow into the engine compartment. Anyone have one and has noticed a decrease in under hood temps as a result?

Very curious if this is measurable?

I'd call a bit of BS on extra airflow. The grill slots are shorter as a result of that top decoration, which would scoop air up due to it's angle.

Still, that is the wild boar grill as others have said. Looks different, but not my personal preference.
