Bug guard. Yes or No?

I've been looking at some old pictures and I can't decide if I like my truck with or without the bug guard best. What do you guys think I should do?

Put it back on?

Take it off or paint to match?, and find a better place to park...LOL
If its been on a long time then you might need to buff up around where its was placed on the front of the hood line. May have dulled the paint a bit.

If you want to keep it, i say your fender flares need to get a lil darker in color, that way they matched the bug gard and your tonneu cover. Just my .02

It's off right now. I've already cleaned up where it was at and waxed all of that. No worries there.

I'd love to. Do it like Ty did his. Maybe one day that will happen but for now I'm not going through all that.
