    To me it looks like a wind noise maker, bug catcher, and leds that will fail within a few months.

    I appreciate the input, i didnt think about it like that, you certainly make some good points. I already have some raptor style lights in my EAG grill so it would likely be overkill. Still interested in a hood deflector anyways, think it might give some height to the front end look.

    One other thing to consider is the junk it collects. When I was looking for my tundra, I came across one truck that had one of these installed. I looked on the underside of it and it was full of leaves, pine straw and pollen. Unless you have a good way to clean it out, this leaves a great source for rust and and causing paint issues if it's not taken care of... This is one reason I passed on the buying this truck.
