Truck Grille Bug Screen

Planning a trip to Alaska for the summer and hearing the stories about lots of bugs I'm thinking it might be a good idea to protect my radiator and/or grille with a bug screen. Really don't want to drill holes or glue snaps onto my truck though. Anybody have any recommendations for a good one?

Careful with that. Find one that doesn't impede airflow.

Here's a few that might work for you:

For my Ford, I used small tie wraps to secure pieces of ordinary window screen to recesses in my grill. It worked well for me for years. They collected lots of bugs so I know they did their job. Never had an issue with overheating.

When you install one watch your temp gauge you may experience overheating climbing hills
