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