Bug/Chip Deflectors?

Do you have a Bug/Chip Deflector on your Jeep?

Maybe because it's Spring, but my windshield is covered by dead bugs in a day or two. Just something I'm considering..

If you have any recommendations, they would be much appreciated.

I have the AEV but it keeps nothing of my windshield. It just looks cool! But it protects the hood edge good.

I've seen some plastic bug deflectors that are more like an air dam (see link). Not sure if they make a specific model to fit the Jeep, however.

Yes, the air dam style definitely works. I've used those before on other 4x4's with great success.

However, it's not the style I would consider using for the Jeep.

I went for the Bushwacker trail armor, it helps a bit with the bugs but not a hell of a lot. I use them more for protection from rocks along the front of the hood, my old TJ used to get carpet bombed with them

Looks nice! Appreciate you sharing this. I'm actually more concerned about rocks myself.
