Yo Craig I finally got the headlights apart toady and between all 4 I couldn't get 2 good ones so I ended up just ordering new ones so if you want them back they are yours. To much work for me to get them right and I have zero patience for that stuff like you do.

Went to VA this past weekend for the Steven Toyota Meet.
It was my first "official" outing representing my Grill company - TOYWERX





Camped out on the lot - all of 27*

The roof of my truck:



Test fit the 2012 again for YotaMatt:



Flexed out on the ramp (thanks for the pic Namyo)



Went out for a great dinner at a local Italian place:



Met some old friends an made some new ones.

Any notable difference in milage with the deflector up? Or is it mostly for protection? I've been thinking about mine and doing something similar wondering if its worthwhile. With all the metal and canvas I've got bolted on I'm not sure seeking gains is even worthwhile hahaha. And i havent even put on my 34's yet

When I drove back from Vegas after the Moab meet it was very obvious I had it up there. It just felt restrictive.
The fairing does a great job helping cut through the wind. I still know it's there but I don't feel it nearly as much as I did.
Mission accomplished.

I'll be partnering with a local member who does though.
your two best options are a sleeved joint in the center of the sway bar, where it crosses in front of the truck, or interlocking jaws on both sides, about half way between the balljoint and wher it makes the 90*

someone already made one that works off of the principal of the second option, but i forget who it was.
