2014 Sierra 1500 bugsheild


Recommended Posts

I have a Stampede and it's been great. All you do is take out some of the push buttons that hold the upper weather stripping on the hood and replace with the ones that come with it. I was worried that it may move over time with being held on with just those plastic pins but it hasn't budged at all after months of driving. I specifically looked for one where you didn't have to drill into the hood or use tape. This one uses a few existing holes that are already being use for the weatherstripping. I also like it because it's a little low profile so it doesn't sick out like a sore thumb, even on a white truck.

Doesn't yours have tape in the middle of the shield? I know it has screws on the end.

No tape and no screws either. It's all just the plastic push buttons all the way across. It uses existing holes that are used by plastic buttons to hold weatherstripping on the hood. No tape, no screws and no drilling. You could take it off and put the factory push buttons back in and you'd never know it was there.

I installed the same one (Stampede) on my wife's 2014 and my 2012 3500. As SSGuy85 said, they are easy to install and work great.

I stopped using these things a LONG time ago. I found that I would -always- end up with chips in my hood from stones and cracked windshields. I had read that the change in airflow had been studied and showed that many times the stones were actually ENCOURAGED to land on the hood or lower windshield instead of flying up over the vehicle.

 

I stopped adding them to my trucks and I never had a stone issue on the hood or windshield again.
