2017 bug deflector

Post by HeavyDuty » Tue Jun 06, 2017 12:31 am

I ordered a avs bugflector II. For a 2500 ram, which I figured would fit. Went to install it and didn't seem quite right. Managed to get it on but when I slammed the hood it seemed real tight. Took a closer look and the screw which they supply to hold the corners in we're hitting my headlights. I'm damn lucky I didn't crack them. I should have let the hood down a little easier to test fit Whoops.... so my question is has anyone found a bugdeflector that fits the .17 powerwagon? Which ones do you like? Thanks

Is yours the new grill? My '15 has an AVS for Ram 2500 that fits without any issues...

I have a Stampede on my 13, and I can't use the screws over the headlights either... maybe if I shimmed the hood open another hundred thousands it would clear, but not the way it is now. It doesn't make a difference on mine, the stampede is a little narrower, so they don't really move around at all.

Yes. Mine is the new grill. I thought the geometry looked the same but I guess not.

How is the '17 different? I added a Lund aeroskin II under the secondary avs hood protector for xtra coverage as it's listed for 09-17. Bugs (springtime) and road debris are terrible here. I've considered bedlining the entire front end. Not sure if you can see it in the pic but a huge rock smacked my plastic avs. It would have destroyed the hood.

Not sure. I installed a avs bugflector II and the part above the headlights "wings" wouldn't fit right. And the mounting screws were digging into my heAdlights. I contacted the manufacturer and they said they did not have one that would fit the powerwagon sub model.

Damn that does look good. That’s the one that adheres to the hood itself? How bout a few more closer pics
