    Any SRT Durango Hood Deflectors or Front Spoilers/Splitters?

    Has anyone added a dark smoked hood deflector (bug shield) or front spoiler/splitter to their SRT Durango?

    I am thinking about adding one or both of these to my 2018 SRT Durango, and I am not finding much information on either.

    Any information and/or pictures would be appreciated.


    Here is the front spoiler/splitter I am looking at:

    Iíd think the bug deflector would interfere with air getting into the hood scoop

    I agree. I donít think it will have good form or function with this vehicle. Definitely doesnít match the look of having a splitter on the front.

    I would bet real $$ that a bug deflector for any current Durango would fit those with the SRT style hood. That front lip looks the same to me, would need to actually see them side by side to be sure.
    I know the hood bra I bought for a regular Durango fit my R/T like a glove.

    For anyone interested, I found this informative article a few years back on the Hellcat hood. It explains how it was Designed and how it functions:
    The Dodge Challenger SRTģ Hellcat?s Airflow Management


    The hood shield I am looking at looks similar to this:

    The article is correct. The scoops are heat exchangers. All engines hate heat, but the 392 in particular, heat really affects power. I fully admit, I donít like the looks of it, but thatís objective. Beyond that, if the deflector works the way itís supposed to itís going to the front intake pretty useless.

    The bug deflector looks like a clean design however, I've never been a fan. I went with the XPel clear film on the front of the hood and fenders and was very happy with how it held up and kept the front end clean. Not sure what advantage a deflector would have over that.

    I have a front splitter and side skirts. If you want to see it let me know and I'll send some pics. No bug deflector...I do have a sealant on my paint and I use a quick detailer spray a few times a week to keep it clean and shiny.
