    Their easy to get off the windshield. The rest of the truck is another story.

    One of my trips from Lake Marion to home in Palm Coast.

    Is that a factory option in Florida? You know the last thing to go through a bugs mind when it hits the windshield is its ass .But I'm sure everyone already knew that ?:cool:

    I've only been to Fla. one time, and vowed never to go back just because of all the bugs. I don't know if it would help but have you tried any of the new ceramic waxes/sealants/coatings? Might make them easier to get washed off.

    I've yet to wax my truck, and it's a 2018. I keep it in my garage, so it doesn't bake all summer.

    Really never had a problem getting them off. If their really bad I'll fill a bucket up with hot water, and they wipe right off.

    Could you imagine what it would look like after a night of driving if it was white.

    Well I got it today, it only takes about five minutes to put it on. After I installed it I can't imagine it rubbing the paint, the clearance is pretty good.

    But it doesn't work as well as I thought it would.

    On a serious note, I just realized this is actually what you need if you wanted to keep bugs off the windshield.
