Default Net Grille Guard??

Today, I took some window netting and placed it in the back of my grill with velcro (to protect my radiator from bugs, rocks, etc.) but I am worried that this will just last a short period of time. Does anyone know of an item that Ford or another company sells that will do the job?

You can buy metal screening materials.
Dad gave me a piece of stainless steel window screen which I installed.

Search "metal window screen" or "window screen material" - something like those...

I havent had any issues with the netting that I placed behind the grille, but I also placed some in the hole on my front bumper and it keeps coming off. Anyone know of some insanely sticky tape that will do the trick??

Who needs tape? Just use gorilla glue. That shit won't go anywhere
