My buddy owns a car repair shop he changes my oil and fuel filters, does tires, brakes etc. He has a customer that drove across country and got so many bugs in his radiator that they had to pull it and clean it. He recommended a bug screen. I was thinking something that might go on with bungee cords strapped to the front somehow but cannot find anything but a company named Fia with a custom bug screen for $80 or so. Anyone recommend anything for a 2018 Ram 2500 diesel??

Build yourself one that goes in behind the grill.

Just beware that anything you put up there in front of the radiator, even a screen (one that keeps bugs out), will impede airflow...so keep your eye on the gauge. If you're just driving local..or typical driving...I wouldn't invite trouble.

speaking of bugs...what do you guys use to get them off the paint? I think some of them are made of super glue!
