Source for Deer Guard for a 2012 Taco?

I live in a rural area with lots of deer on the road. I don't want to have a run in with my shiny new Tacoma. What is a good source for a deer guard that I can mount on on the front end?

Are there solid attachment points to the frame?

There is not much of a front bumper on these rigs.

Thanks!

I would go with an entire bumper replacement. Bull bar and brush guards are just not built sturdy enough to withstand an impact up to 150 lbs. at 65-70 mph.

I wouldn't trust Westin, Hunter or GoRhino against a deer. They end up being damage multipliers because they are not structurally supported and will still allow the deer to hit certain parts of the front end. If you want something that will bolt on over the front of the truck, I'd look into Ranch Hand guards. They are pretty beefy and probably the best protection you can get next to plate bumpers.

ARB. I've used it for everything including ramming buildings, nudging shopping carts (Only extreme mall crawlers apply) and pushing broken Dodge Dakotas back onto their car carriers.

Very sturdy bumper.
