Default Which Radiator bug screen?

Before summer sets in I would like to get a radiator bug screen installed behind the grill just in front of the radiator. Any suggestion on brands, suppliers or any other source for a quality bug screen? I like the kind that has the small bungee cords to fasten the screen corners. What are you guys using?

Any help would be appreciated.

He probably could but I would guess he doesn't want it to look like Jethro and Joe Bob did it.

if it's done right putting a screen behind the grill is cheaper. i did it on my 07 power wagon and you cant tell is even there unless your looking for it. but make sure you use a good strong mesh aluminum screen. just be smart how you put it on and it will be just as good as an aftermarket one you buy from an accessory shop or a dealer.

I never thought about this! Would save me work since I have, and actually USE a radiator-comb. How about fiberglass screen? Since its strong, very flexible, and already dark-colored? Or "pet-screen" if you really wanna stop some 50 cal. road debris!
