Those rivets are available from parts stores in the "Help" section.

leicher2500,
You may want to consider leaving the bug shield off. Many people on here have seen a slight increase in fuel mileage WITHOUT the bug shield on. It apparently affects the aerodynamic flow of air over the hood/cab area of the truck. Hope this helps.

Yes, I am. Do a search for "bug shield" on here. There's a couple threads floating around about that very same topic.

I have a couple of bags of those little plastic "rivets" that I bought from the local parts store. Should be available anywhere. I can't recall offhand exactly what they're called. Many different makes and sizes.

I used them to move my bugshield from my '04 to my '07.
