    I apologize if I posted this in the wrong section, I did my best to try and find the specific section but was unable to do so. Can anyone recommend a good hood deflector for 2018 Tundra? I bought a AVS hood deflector but it left gaps about and inch wide above the headlights and defeats the purpose. Also looking into “clear bra” option but I am having difficulty finding installers in this area. Thanks

    Just do the clear bra yourself. Watch some YouTube videos and learn to do it. Buy some from Amazon. Looks good afterwards.

    I've thought about the mustache ever since I bought the truck, but all of them seem very low profile and like they wouldn't affect the aerodynamics enough to actually throw things up over the truck instead of hitting the hood.

    The XPEL material is dam expensive, you may want to have it professionally installed. I have had several of my vehicles done in the past. Not something I would reccomend as a DIY. FWIW.

    For those that have the Xpel or clear bra, did they do the bumper too, or just the hood?
