AVS Aeroskin Lightshield Hood Protector Reviews
After having my Jeep for less than two months, I got a flying rock on the interstate leaving a crack in my windshield. That put me in the market for a deflector. I was going to get something fairly basic when I came across the AVS Lightshield Hood Protector. I really liked the idea of the LED lights.
I had a couple of issues with the installation that keep me from giving this a full five stars. Installing the deflector itself is pretty straightforward, but you should be aware that the instructions are not Jeep specific. This especially becomes an issue for wiring if you don’t have experience with this kind of thing (which was my case). After running the wire and connecting it to the parking light, I could not get any signal to the LEDs. I ended up taking it to a local custom auto shop and was charged $25 to get it working. That was reasonable considering he fixed it right away, and it was very hot outside where he was working. But if the instructions had been specific to the Jeep’s wiring, perhaps I wouldn’t have needed to take it to someone else for the final step.
Also, according to the instructions, there’s supposed to be a hole in the deflector for running the wire. There was no hole! Not a huge deal since all I had to do was drill a hole in the plastic, but this seemed like an odd oversight since the instructions said it should be there.
Finally, look closely at the example photo, which I believe comes from AVS. The example photo does not look to me exactly like the actual product. The lights are merely a flex strip with LEDs strung along a channel in the deflector. The example photo gives an impression that there are lights encased in the deflector—that’s what it looks like to me anyway. I will attempt to post a couple of photos of the deflector on my Mojito JLU. Note also that the example photo from AVS has the LED lights in groups of four. Mine has lights in groups of three. Not a huge deal, but it’s odd that the photo doesn’t look quite the same.
In spite of the nitpicks above, I really like this deflector. My main concern was that the lights might look a little gaudy. They don’t. The lights connect to the parking light, so if the parking light is on, the deflector LED lights are on. This should increase visibility at night. The lights are below the driver’s field of vision, so it’s not a distraction while driving.
