    Default Bugs on front grille remedy

    An FYI from trying different things. I have tried just about everything out there including special products you can pick up at car shows that work really well there (I am a sucker sometimes). After extensive research here is what I have found to be the best overall bug and tar remover. Good Old fashion WD-40. Spray some on a rag and it will get most if not all of the bugs off. Also, before a long drive spray some PAM over your grille (lightly) also do the side mirrors and fender flares. You'd be surprised at how easy the bugs wipe off. Truckers will sometime do this to the deflector over their roof. Anyway if anyone has any other suggestions post them. As we all know the only thing aerodymanic about a jeep is it will fly if you go up the hill fast enough (But Not Very Far)....

    Don't wash your Jeep.
    After about a year of road filth and trail grime, I don't see the bugs.

    Regular old dryer sheets just get them wet in your wash bucket and scrub away

    I will not Tiptoe through life only to arrive safely to my death, with no scars or stories to tell. I will enter Hell sideways in a Burning pile of rubble, with a smile on my face asking if I can do it again !???
