Bug Deflector question.

I would like to purchase the Mopar Chrome Bug Deflector. Does anyone know if it fits well when closing the hood? I don't like wear marks created when the hood is closed. My WJ had scratches all over the grill and headlight areas under the hood.

Thanks

Re: Bug Deflector question.

Probably not much help here but I have the tinted mopar deflector on my 14 GC and it fits well without contact below the hoodline. Looks great too!

I was worried about the hood clearance with having the deflector in there. Doesn't look to be much room.

Appreciate all the feedback, I ordered the chrome one. My JGC is Inferno Red so IMO the chrome will look good.
