    It was 2 years ago. I think 350 is the deal now. And there isn't any shipping. Plus you inspect it first

    You can get the ARB skid plate from 4wheelparts relatively quickly, but it’s (1/8” ??) steel if that is a deal breaker.

    Your truck is the current generation. :thumbsup:

    Might as well get real aftermarket ones. (FTFY)

    The OE ones are nice looking and do fine with modest debris/sticks/brush and mall duty. But a serious knock and they will collapse. Or at least dent very well. Just a characteristic of that gauge of aluminum. So the question for @Daewooguy5.56 is how hard do you drive it? It doesn't take much to damage a splash pan. So maybe the OE one is robust enough for your needs? If you do go OE and do offroad some, I'd suggest a bedliner type finish, or at least something like BBQ paint, so it's easy to touch up. If touch up matters to you.

    Shazam! Are you saying the 3rd gen has 2 gen DNA lying under that skin? :eek: :D

    My current splash guard has a broken mounting point. I use the truck offroad, but I dont plan of crawling it. I just want the undersided protected from debris

    I picked this one up on Amazon for 280 bucks. It is quite a bit stronger Than the one I replaced. I forget the name. Kuafu? It said it would be here on Feb 1 but I put it on my truck tonight. Pleasant surprise.

    Found a TRD used skid locally for $180, kept an eye on craigslist/marketplace. It didn't have the red TRD lettering, just the recessed lettering/all grey finish. Added matte black TRD lettering from bdtrims.com (they have all colors) that fit perfectly, look great and are cheap enough I'm not worried about ripping them off on the trail.
