Feeler: TRD Off-Road Stock Front Skidplate

I have this just sitting in my garage. I dont need it. It has one dent in it as you can see in the picture. I hit it out a little with a hammer. The picture make it look worse than it is. And when its on the truck, its at the back so you cant see it. If anyone wants it I will take $40 local pickup here in socal. Thanks

Edit: Forgot to add that I spray painted the scratch black. The area that had the ding was very minorly scratched and I touched it up. You cant even tell.

This is the one that comes with the TRD package. I just bought a Brand NEw TRD Truck and this is the same SKid plate. The other one is the Accesorie you have to add seperately. Believe me, I was ill because I wanted the other one.

Mine is badly bent, if you take it off, it a mother to get back on. I have hammered it out quite a few times.

still its a solid deal for someone that need to replace theirs because i believe they sell for almost 180 at the dealer and the seller is solid
Thanks. Im just trying to help someone out if they are in need.

I have a Brand new TRD Tacoma bought 10 days ago. Have the window sticker and I called Toyota and asked...They say "The TRD is a Package, and the black one is the one that comes with the TRD package, as listed on the window sticker... "
The Silver is the Accessory Skid Plate you can ADD-on. Take a look at all the TRD Off Road Trucks on this website, most have the black one exactly like this one.. A Few have the Accessory one that was added for looks after the TRD package on the truck.
Trust me, I went round and round with the Dealer and the Toyota Rep to make sure I didn't get screwed with not getting the right Plate!
I would prefer the silver one though!!!

Auart,

The skid plate listed above is the standard front skit plate that comes on all Tacoma's. If you are interested in the silver accessory skid plate be sure to check online you can get it a lot cheaper and it is really easy to install yourself just having a good socket wrench. I lake the way they look also and have one. Congrats on your new truck! What color did you get?

Auart,

Also the silver just bolts on top of the existing skid plate, it does not replace it. Hope this helps. Best price I have seen for one is at this link for $154.00. They have great prices on everything that Toyota sells for the Tacoma.

You can also remove the black one and add the silver one. Either way works

In fact look what we have here, its a picture of said skid plate off my SPORTmodel


I agree there is nothing OFF ROAD about the black one...
I am telling you I looked at one of the top volume dealers in the Southeast US, they got 16 Tacoma Double cabs, of which 10 were TRD O/R package and every single one has the "Skid Plate" listed as part of the package but all of them have the Black one. Maybe its a ripoff in the Southeast, which is part of the Southeast Toyota dealer distribution which is well known for ripoffs....
But I just bought this truck and the Toyota rep called me after I complained and gave me the line of bull about the skid plte is part of these packages, but they sell the silver one as a seperate Accessory but the silver is not automatically part of the TRD Off Road package.

its sort of a game with words I think..
I wish I could have gotten a silver one, it looks better!
I actually went by another dealer and looked at the TRD Off Orad trucks and the only one that had the silver one was one they had charged the extra 199 as a seperate accessory added on, not in the package.
So I think its a rip.

heres my advise
take the 5 minutes and follow this check list:
1. go out to your truck,
2. go underneath it in front
3. find the skid plate shown in the pictures above (that is not the Off Road Package skids, yes it is a skid but it is standard)
4. look directly behind it and observe the second skid (this is one of the 2 off road skids)
5. get out from under the truck
6. move to the driver side and look at the gas tank
7. observe the plastic "skid plate" covering the tank (this is the second off road exclusive skid plate)
8. come back inside the house and post up that you saw exactly what i just described

then tomorrow go back to your dealer, find a sport model repeat steps 1-3 then come back to TW and tell me that I am correct.
The front skid is not the off road exclusive skid.

I actually already have but I will take pics of my sticker and Off ROAD Decals on the truck too... as well as underneath.
Also, looked at them at the dealer already.... I need to hire you to go to bat for me at the dealership bro...
they must be selling every single OFF ROAD TRD truck in the South with STD Skid Plates.

Heck, I will even take pictures of another truck at my office, a co-worker bought an OFF Road 2wd truck last week as well....He doesn't have the silver Skid either... Guess he got screwed too! Different dealership too!

ok so ill see what I can find to make this a little more clear

The silver skid in the picture below is the aftermarket one you are refering to, It used to come as standard Equip on the OR package

The black skid JD is selling is the standard on all models front skid plate, it comes on all the trucks (OR sport, SR5 even the base model)

the OR exclusive "skid plates" that you see listed on the sticker are two additional skids, there is one directly behind the front one and another plastic one covering the gas tank. If you go to the dealer and they have an SR5 or a sport there next to an OR crawl underneath and it will be much easier to see what i am talking about. I cant really put up pics since I don't have the OR package but I have torn enough of these trucks apart to know what I am talking about.
OK....oakleyTRD....

The Off Road Package shows Skid Plate but it is the standard black only...
The silver is only an add-on available only if it is listed by itself on the Sticker or you buy it from Toyota Parts on your own..
But, and I have you to thank for pointing this out... The OR Package has the extra plate behind the front one and the Gas tank cover. I have posted my pics in my gallery so you can click on my gallery and look through my pictures to see all the pics I took of mine, which is the Off Road 2wd model brand new.
We looked under a friends Sport model and saw that the Sport model didn't have these extra plates for protection.
So Thanks for pointing that out. I had a long discussion with my Dealer about this and told them this was one of those misleading Toyota Sticker things and they should not list "Skid Plate" in the OR sticker since most of us look upon that as the Silver one and it is NOT! Kinda like the Tow Package I paid for not coming with a Ball Mount and every 4runner I bought (2 in the last 10 yrs) came with a Ball mount (not the ball itself) and the Tacoma Tow Package does not anymore. That's a rip too!!!
Of course the dealer is giving me one as a show of good faith since I complained and I haven't done the Toyota Survey yet so they want a good rating!

Thanks again Bro!... Now check out my pics in my Gallery!
