While I was at the dealership they had the Mopar bug deflector in stock so I purchased it and added it t the service ticket for installation.
It was worth having the dealership install it b/c they had issues with it at first, and I had read about others having issues as well, mainly with the metal clips.
In the end it turned out well and I'm guessing install was 20-30 minutes.

So far I have noticed less bugs on the windshield, and there is no wind noise at all whatsoever from it(Tested up to 80mph).
Very rugged/strong design, and an exact match material wise as what's on the Rebel grill.
Last pic I tried to show the black metal screws holding it on, but didn't quite come out.

Hello, which Mopar's partnumber?
82215476 I believe, but not 100% sure. I just told the parts worker my vehicle info and they got me the matte black Mopar version.

The same bug deflector came on my 2019 Rebel from the dealer. I've had no issues whatsoever.

Thanks for pictures and information. Just picked up my Rebel (black) a few weeks ago and travel to W Texas on a rotational schedule. I really have to make this a priority with traveling down the Lease roads and fighting rock chips. I really like the idea that it is flat black to match the grill and not the shiny material.
