TOUGH FORMFIT GUARD HOOD PROTECTOR
You may have mounted bolt-on or bolt-on look fender flares, as I did to my 2004 Ram 1500. Maybe you did this just for the rugged look, but probably to help cover the larger tires you installed. You can now get the same rugged look in a hood protector with the Tough FormFit Guard.
My Ram was retired after hitting 300,000 km and now there is a blue 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited in the stable. The first 25,000 km have already put a few chips in the leading edge of the hood so I went looking for some protection. I stumbled across Focus Auto Design at SEMA 2017 and was stoked to see the bolt-on look hood protectors. After a quick chat, I was even more excited to hear they were a Canadian company out of Calgary that had been building hood protectors for original equipment manufacturers (OEM) for over 20 years. The UV stable acrylic capped ABS hood guard was a solid piece of construction with the all-important ‘nodrill’ installation. I ordered one.
Installation takes roughly an hour and although it is not hard, I recommend you read the instructions once before you start and keep this mag handy as photos are always easier to understand than diagrams.
You’ll need a tape measure, fine point sharpie (or sharp white crayon if your truck is dark), T45 Torx (or 7/32” allen key), #2 Phillips, a 21°C day or heated garage, a steady hand and, good but not necessary, a buddy who doesn’t chirp at you while you work.
