      Video Review & Installation

      If you're looking for one of the most affordable ways to add some protection to the hood of that 2019 and newer RAM, well, then you'll wanna consider the Hoodflector option that we're talking about here today. Now, this made in the USA hood shield will combine a durable injection-molded acrylic material along with that dark smoked appearance, all for right around 70 bucks. Installation, not going to involve any drilling or permanent modification, so, therefore, the site's gonna stick to a solid one out of three wrenches on the old difficulty meter, and I'd say about an hour or so to complete from start to finish as we'll demonstrate later in the video.So the purpose of this or any deflector in general, no matter what brand you go with is pretty simple, right? Reduce and hopefully eliminate any unsightly paint chips caused by stones or other debris you'll find on the road. Now, you guys know the deal. The reality is if you spend a good amount of time on the highway in your RAM, you're inevitably going to encounter some stones getting kicked up by other cars or trucks in front of you, which is gonna ding up the hood, ding up the fenders, and in some cases, your windshield as well. Now, there are certainly a couple of different ways to combat this. You could either go with a thick, black vinyl bra, which really isn't always the most appealing method. You can always check out a clear bra, which is certainly a little bit more low profile, but can be a bit pricey, or you can also check out something like this, which is gonna be an affordable and very low profile way to help prevent the stone or rock chips from impacting the front-end of that new RAM.Now, I do wanna quickly point out that this is very similar to the Bugflector II that you'll also find here on the site for your new RAM. While this option is about $20 less, that Bugflector II does give you a bit more material in this portion here and it has a bit of a kick-up. So that's inherently going to help divert smaller stones, bugs, things like that up and over the cab of your RAM and hopefully from digging up the windshield hood and so on. So I just wanted to make the small distinction between the two because a lot of guys might look at them both and go, "What's the deal here? One looks identical to the other, but one's 20 bucks cheaper." So that's the big difference between the Hoodflector and the Bugflector that you'll also find here at AT.But I do wanna quickly go back and just mention the low-profile aspect. I'm a big fan of how these fit the hoods on the newer RAMs. I feel like they hug them very well. Again, low-profile is the perfect word for it. Certainly, a far cry from the wind deflectors of 20 or 30 years ago, which basically was a 6-inch piece of plastic sticking straight up off the hood. It might've been effective, but it certainly didn't do anything for your appearance. Not the case here with the Hoodflector. Again, these things look like they're custom-tailored to the front-end of your RAM. They pretty much are. And that certainly is apparent once you go to install them. And the materials here are gonna be pretty standard across the board when we're talking deflectors, usually combine some sort of injection-molded as is the case here, along with that dark smoked appearance which will help aid that stealthy appearance once it's been installed, especially on darker colors, not so much on white or silver, but you get the point. Still looks really good with that smoked appearance. But now comes the point in the video where we wanna walk you through what's involved when it comes time to get the Hoodflector installed on your 2019 and newer RAM at home. So without further ado, check out our detailed walkthrough and tool breakdown right now.Tools used for this installation include a clean microfiber towel, cleaning solution or detailer spray, panel removal tool, Phillips head screwdriver, and a wax pencil. All right. Getting started with this install, we wanna go ahead and clean the leading edge of the hood here of our RAM just to make sure we have a clean surface to get started with and also later on in the install, we will be installing small little bump stops here as to not scratch the paint. So I have some quick detailer. You can use soap and water or whatever you have lying around the house or garage and go ahead and clean it off with a clean microfiber towel. With the leading edge of the hood all nice and clean, go ahead and grab your hood deflector now along with your wax pencil we told you about earlier, because we need to mark the clips on where the hood deflector is actually going to live.At that point, we'll show you why because we're gonna need to remove those clips and install the new included hardware. All right. So, again, we have our hood shield here. We're gonna kind of just mock it up for now, slide it onto the hood. Kind of make sure everything's center and now the important part is we need to take and reference which clip lines up with the hole of the deflector. Now, I'll pull this off so you guys can actually see. You'll see a number of clips holding on the rubber weather seal here to the underside of the hood. The hood shield is actually gonna use some of these existing clips or at least the clip locations. So we're gonna grab our wax pencil right now and just mark which one of these clips we need to take out and that point we'll show you what's next.All right. So we're gonna mark this clip here with our wax pencil and this one. We have one more on the end. All right. We're gonna repeat this process here on the driver's side. We're gonna mark this clip and this clip right here. And last but not least, our end clip. Now, with our clips all marked, we can remove the hood shield for now. And as you can see, they are marked in yellow. Those are the clips we're gonna remove right now with our panel removal tool and that's what's gonna secure our hood deflector or hood shield in place. All right. So we have our panel removal tool. Now we're gonna pop out the marked clips that we just marked in our previous step. Secret here, get behind the actual rubber weatherstripping, and fully seat your panel removal tool and then pop everything out. Again, we're not removing every clip here, just the marked ones.Now we can go back and fully remove each one of the clips that we just loosened up here. And if you do happen to break a few of those clips, don't worry. The new hood shield does include brand new clips for you guys to use. Okay. We got or hood shield in hand, we have our included push pins or clips in hand as well. Now we're gonna get this guy in place. The big thing to keep in mind is here you need to actually insert these tabs underneath the rubber weatherstripping. That's very important. So we're gonna pull the hood down, start working the tabs underneath the strip. Part might be a little tricky at first, but once you get it under there, it should be held in place. Before we go to the next side and insert the clips underneath the weatherstripping, I'm going to insert one of our clips into this location here as just to prevent it from sliding out from underneath the weatherstripping.All right. With the clip inserted there, grab your Phillips head screwdriver and go ahead and tighten it down. With clip in hand, go ahead and try to thread it through, both the weatherstripping and the hood shield. Grab your Phillips head screwdriver and tighten up the clip. And now I can secure our final clip here on the driver's side, making sure to line the holes perfectly. Now we're just gonna repeat this process here on the passenger side, starting with the clip closest to the middle. Really push that clip in hard while screwing in the Phillips head clip. A little tricky to get the hang of it first, but once you feel it you'll get it. With all six clips secured underneath the hood, we're almost done, but we have one more final step to do. The kit does include these little rubber bump stops to install behind the hood shield here, just so that the hood shield itself doesn't rub against your hood paint and cause any damage to the paint itself. So we're gonna install these next onto our freshly cleaned hood.So the instructions state as long as you get it behind the actual deflector here and space them out evenly across the hood. So we're gonna start our first one pretty much right over the driver's side headlight. Get it down. And there is adhesive on the back. Just make sure you put some pressure on it and that's it. Our next bump stop will go behind the deflector on the driver's side portion of the hood. Our third bump stop will go on the passenger side of the hood and our fourth and final bump stop will go right over the passenger side headlight right behind the hood shield.And with that final bump stop in place, that wraps up our install and review of the Dark Smoke Hood Shield, available for your 2019 and newer RAM at home.
