    Can't seem to find many accessories for a 2012 and would like to install a bug deflector on my 2012 Sport TRD as soon as possible after picking it up.

    Any suggestions? Would deflectors made for earlier Tacoma's fit?

    Hood profile is different on my 2012 versus the 2010. Will not fit! Even the dealers don't have them right now. (My dealer tried lining up a 2010/11 with a 2012 already to no avail).

    Haven't seen an aftermarket application yet. Toyota offers them, I have installed them. Whether they're in stock or not is the question there.

    The toyota deflector is available. Picked mine up at TRDparts4u.com. You can visit their site and see the install instructions. Pretty basic-looks good with the white truck too.

    AVS has released a standard BugII shield. Part number shows 25310 on their site. Can't say if they are shipping though.

    I e-mailed EGR a month ago and they said theirs would be out in April. I can find the part numbers online for the 2 different models, but it doesn't look like anyone is actually selling them yet. Called AutoAnything and they said they are in their system, but haven't actually gotten any in stock yet. EGR 305071 is for the SuperGuard and 395071 is for the AeroWrap.

    2012 DC about three weeks ago. Yesterday, I had the dealer remove the deflector because of annoying wind whistle that could be heard over the radio. Dealer adjusted the deflector and whistling stopped for one week, but came right back. Dealer removed the deflector and refunded my money. Very glad the bug deflector and wind whistle are gone.

    I contacted weathertech earlier this week and they will have one available for around $60.00 in about 6 weeks.
