Bent/Scratched my TRD Skid...fix or just buy a new one

So I've had my truck like a month now and I took it out on a couple trails. The guy I bought the truck from had the TRD Skid powdercoated white, which lookeds decent, but obviously doesn't do well when it gets any face time with rocks haha.

So I bent the plate a tiny bit so it doesn't line up very well with the bumper, that I can probably bend back or something, but its pretty scratched. Honestly I was just gonna sand it down and rattle can some primer and white spray on there...its a friggin skid plate. At this point I'll probably leave it off unless I'm wheelin.

Any thoughts.
