Unfortunately in real life, no bra = quicker rate of sagging.

Still, though, on a Jeep - I vote no bra.

Bra's look terrible and should never be on any vehicle especially a Jeep.

Bra....but go with a 3M clear bra, works great to protect the hood, grill and colored fenders and is near invisible! The worst thing about those style bras is dust gets under them and scratches the hell out of your clearcoat/paint underneath it!

Picture of my clear 3M bra. You can see it with this mud shot...where the bra ends on the hood and slightly on my fender flares.

When my JK is clean you can't see the bra and have to look really hard up close just to see the line of the bra.

Erin-Go-Bra........less.

The only time a bra makes sense is temporarily, when you expect to get a ton of bugs, likke during love-bug season.

It hazes the paint, scratches the paint, causes unequal fading and needs to come off and dry after every rain.....just like everyone said.

Go Bra-less!

So, If I am reading you right, the BUG DEFLECTOR doesn't really work?
I have a farm in the country, and driving home at night we gets lots of big slimy bugs on the windshield. They always wash off, but was considering a deflector.

The Bra and the Front Grill FULL BRA would protect the paint, but you would only want to use it on nice days (no Rain or Snow) when you are no a road trup. otherwise it will fog up the paint.

In 1980, I had a 280ZX, New. I had a bra for that car with a built in bug deflector (a triangle shaped lump in the low front of the bra). It really worked, I only put it on for long hi-way trips. Saved me some from rocks too. But the Z was real low to the ground and rocks were a constant problem. What seemed to work for me was something easy to pull on and take off, with some kind of bug deflector built in. Wish I could find one like that for my Rubi!

Where did you get it? Is it made for a Jeep?
Can you easily take it off and clean it?

It has been in the market for many many years though it might be under other names like VentureShield and Scotchgard. There are other companies making similar or marketing similar product like InvisiShield, Xpel and etc.

I got it from a 3M protectant dealer. It is cut for the JK wrangler that includes hood, flares, grill, headlights & foglights. Just wax it like your paint. It is basically permanently on but can be removed easily when it starts looking bad or when you want to sell your vehicle as the paint will be like new with no chips or scratches under the 3M Bra.

I think the Wrangler is easier to do it as no that many curves.
When I had a professional shop (located in a small airfield, they do planes and cars) to put that on my Miata, they swore not to do another one anytime soon (I knew that from peopel who had done it, so I found a shop to do it)
