Bug deflector / hood protector????

Just got a 22 GX460 and can't seem to find bug deflectors for this thing.

I've found one video for deflector by OMAC, which I guess is a Russian company.

But what's the deal? Lexus owners don't care about rock chips or is everyone doing the PPF thing now?

You're right, there aren't many bug deflectors specifically advertised for the 2022 GX460 yet. This is likely because it's a new model year and manufacturers haven't fully caught up.
The OMAC video you found does offer a glimmer of hope. While they're a Russian company, they do ship internationally and seem to have decent reviews. However, double-check compatibility and shipping costs before committing.

There's no reason to believe Lexus owners don't care about rock chips. Bug deflectors were always a popular choice for older GX models, and their absence for the 2022 model might be a temporary gap.
PPF is definitely gaining popularity, offering broader protection but at a higher cost. It's a personal choice depending on your budget and priorities.
I hope this clarifies the situation. Remember, while the options might seem limited right now, more choices will likely emerge in the coming months. Good luck and happy driving!
