Depends on how dry it stays and or how much crap gets in there. Your taking chances either way by not drilling it in. You figure even at a rate of 60MPH, thats alot of pressure on something heading into the wind with only double sided tape holding it on

Trust me, its worth it. It wont screw up anything on the truck and you wont have to drive around worrying when its going to blow off and possibly hit your truck and do more damage

And you don't think I'll have to worry about rust right? And do you know if those screws are self-tapping?

I really dont think rust will be an issue, but I would silicone the holes anyway because that thing will be like a gutter when it rains. Pre-drill your holes so the screws dont slip and scratch anything up. Throw the silicone on the screws then screw them in so everything will be protected then

DO NOT DRILL , IT WILL RUST, Yeah mine is a 1989 so its been around but when mine was wrecked in 92 they re drilled to change the bumper a little and it is COVERED in cancer, I like the guy above idea , velcro or double sided tape

LOL don't people understand that his hood his fiberglass? (it won't rust!) wasn't this mentioned about 4 times earlier?
and who would trust double sided tape to hold a bug deflector onto their truck going down the highway at 75mph when it's windy out?
