trd sport ...trd skid plate good or bad?

ive got a 08 trd sport and really like the way the trd skid plate looks but im debating on whether it would be a dumb thing for me to do seen as my truck is the "sport" not the "off-road"... i just would like some more opinions to help me make up my mind... pics of some other sports with the skid plate would be nice 2... thanks

Question. How did you do that TRD on your skid plate? Stencil? Sock Monkey Decal? Steady hand lots of time and 30 bottles of whiteout?

I don't think it would look better in radiant red, BSP for sure though, lol.

I have the skid plate as well, and it looks nice, I wouldn't say it would do to much good since it is kinda thin, but lucky for me its usually sand i am hitting anyway, lol.

you can always just take the black one that comes on the sport, and give it some bling...
