I'd like to purchase a hood protector for my 2022 refreshed Trail Boss and have had no luck finding one made for my truck up to this point. My first choices were the AVS Aeroskin, and Weather Tech.
Neither company is making a product that will fit a this point in time according to their web sites. I've emailed both companies asking them when and if they plan on producing one and both have said that they have nothing in the works at this point in time.
Does anyone know of any similar products on the market that will fit the 2022 refreshed?
 
Unfortunately I tried an extensive search and came up with the same results as you. Will have to wait an see is any of these companies find it worth while to manufacture one. There’s probably a film protector out there, but I didn’t want to go that route.

Pretty much the same situation I'm in. I got some prices on paint protection film for my hood and don't really want to get into that kind of money at this point in time. So we wait.
I'll be sure to post if I get an update from the companies I contacted, or come across a similar product that will do the job with similar fit and finish.
 
AVS Aeroskin website is wrong. It will fit a TrailBoss. I have a 2021. Fits fine and I love the front amber leds. Its has reduced my windshield bug splatter by 90% as opposed to the bolt on one from the Chevy accessories site
 
I do believe that there is a difference in the hood design between the 2021 and 2022 models. Due to this, no manufacturer has yet to produce a hood protector for the ZR2 or TB.

Yes, you are correct. They changed the just for looks scoops on the hood of my 2022 refreshed. Apparently it has changed the shape of the leading edge of the hood slightly and the aftermarket companies aren't interested in retooling to manufacture product at this point.
 
Glad I found this post and im wasnt actually losing my mind. I've been looking relentlessly for a hood protector with zero luck. Love the AVS Aeroskin II with the raised lip but looks like as of yet I'm out of luck with that one or any other at this point. 😡

There is a hood protector available made by AVS. You can purchase it from your Chevy dealership or trying an aftermarket website, suggest Real Truck website for a better price. $79.99
 
I have an AVS Aeroskin I got from Realtruck. If you have a refresh ( Like i do ) it is best to just search saying 2023.

Yea I saw that ..one website shows the same part number for a '22 and a '23 but then I tried to order and a big flag came up saying does not fit a '22. Mine is also a refresh. Thanks

Are you going to the website RealTruck.com ? When I originally tried my search they didn’t have one listed for TB refresh or a ZR2. Now they do. I ended up getting mine as a Christmas present through Chevrolet. Soon afterwards I saw it was now listed on RealTruck, and at a better price than going through Chevy.

Yep and it shows the same part number for both years. Is it stick on ??
