    2014 tundra has anyone found anything to help with all the bugs that splat on the huge windshield? Is there a bug deflector that actually keeps bugs off the windshield? Last 2000 model tundra we had the bug deflector sent the bugs straight to the windshield!!!

    It's a losing battle. I've found there to be far more bugs than windshields.

Toyota door logo courtesy lights and 20in black and machine rims on 275/60 Cooper HT plus M&S tires also painted red calipers. Also painted red Toyota emblem.
    The only combination I've come up with is. Put a layer of rain x then a few layers of turtle wax on the windshield. It makes it so the bugs don't stick as back as easier to wipe off.

    My AVS Bugflector 1 worked very well on my Tacoma in combination with RainX wash/wax coming back from AK. I just put an AVS bugflector II on my Tundra. Will find out in a couple days how well this one works out aerodynamically speaking on my upcoming road trip.
