    Do the smitty bull bars or dezee bull bars that fit the 05-11 fit the 12 as well? I'm just wondering before purchascing cause I feel if I buy something that fits a 05-10 or 05-11 it is cheaper. I really feel nothing has changed behind that bumper but not too sure can't remember it from the 09 style

    I was wondering the same thing as well, I was looking at the hunter bull bar. This is one similar post in the archives, but it wasn't answered...

    most of the sellers we are talking about are on ebay and don't bother to look at the trucks to find out. They just buy inventory at a lower cost and sell. So that is why I am asking if anyone knows if something that fits the 05-11 that is being sold would also fit the 12

    I'm talking about the manufacturer not the seller.

    I have a 2012 double cab, and bought a Westin bull bar and the skid plate got rust spots that would not go away, then Aries came out with one for the 12 and I returned the other one and got the Aries. I am very happy with Aries (built better too) and Autoanything took great care of me and I am very happy with the Aries (about $100. cheaper too!)

    Just installed the Smitty yesterday on my 12, and the instructions said, "05-12".

    Actually wanted the Avid light bar for better protection, but after shipping it to Canada it was way out of my budget.
