    any one seen any '12 specific plate bumpers? i saw DeMello put one of their bumpers for a 05-11 on a 12 and the fitment didn't look as good as it did on the older trucks.

    Just got off the phone with Jeff at ARB. He said they can't (I guess not can't but its not feasible to send a 2012 tacoma, or even a front clip to Australia) but they did some imaging and sent essentially design/cad scans over their way and they should be working on the prototype now. He said if everything goes well they should get the actual prototype in their hands in a month or two, with possible full on production in 3-5 months.

    He did mention to keep an eye on their website (not trying to plug, just pass along info) for potential spy photos of the bumper and US customers should see a part number with pricing around the time of production start so they can begin to fill preorders.

    They posted a spy shot on FB with a 2012 front clip removed for test fitting of the bullbar.
