Front Air Deflector
 
Silly little thing, but on my '98 GC I have a "Mopar" Front Air Deflector on the front hood in "smoke".

I have yet to see one on a '11 Jeep. I know one exists as the part number is: 82212047

Would love to see a pic of one installed if anyone has one?

Bump. Also wondering about getting one of these. Can someone post a picture of theirs if they have one?

Even though there is a part number, this part is not available yet. Supposedly, the manufacturer will be distributing this part to MOPAR starting July 16. I have been wanting this part since March. In the meantime, I installed an AVIS Bugflector II ( Google AVIS Bugflector II)made for the 2011 JEEP Grand Chrokee. It looks pretty good and protects the front of the hood. I was not very happy about the installation. It advertizes a "no drill" installation. But, it comes with a self taping screw which I found impossible to screw into the bottom of the hood, unless I were to drill a hole first. I refused to do that, so I used Gorilla tape (very strong) and the other fasteners that came with the deflector. It is pretty secure. When the MOPAR one becomes available, I will buy that one. Hope this helps.

Replace the AVS screw setup with aftermarket GM & Ford Retainers (plastic push trees). I used UFO brand Body Hardware # 7352R. There are 7 in the pack and
only 6 are needed for the installation. Also used 3-M black weather strip adhesive
for the rubber air deflector. Can't provide photos as the hard drive with the pics crashed on the personal computer.

Called a dealer today and they said that they wouldn't be shipping until after the 16th of this month (July). Not sure if I should get the chrome or tinted one ... wonder which one would look best with Mineral Gray.

The black/tinted version blends in perfectly with the Blackberry paint.

make me wounder.
Called my dealer today in Australia, he said he has 50+ in stock!
Are they made downunder?
And he said they have had them over a month

Someone please pics as soon as you get this installed. Would love to see the tinted one.

Found the UFO trees at the local Part Plus auto parts store in NH. Any traditional auto parts store should have OE replacement plastic push pins or trees. Retail type Autozone/Advance probably won't.

I'm trying to decide same thing. Can't decide which would look better

I've seen the "Chrome" one. Wasn't impressed. I too have Mineral Gray and think the smoked/tinted one would look great. Still I'm waiting to see a photo of one before I decide for sure.
