Finally got up enough nerve to "pull" the front grill off and install some hardware cloth to protect the AC heat exchanger/evaporator from rocks and road debris. Then found out I don't have enough hardware cloth :( oh well, next weekend.

I got my hardware cloth at a local hardware store. Don't remember if Lowes carries it. And yes, putting screen in front of the radiator/heat exchanger will disrupt the airflow so bigger hole size is better. Don't go any smaller than 1/4" and 3/8" would be better.

Been using it for years and have never had to replace a heat exchanger/radiator. Also haven't had any problems with insufficient air flow or cooling.

Here is the idea on a Dodge PU, Jeep Cherokee, and the Z (painted it black for the Z):
