    Anyone have pictures of their TRD front skid plate painted black? (Or any other dark color)

    I'm debating on painting mine flat black before installing it on my MGM

    Like, so many.
    How much do those TRD plates sell for?

    Mine came with the TRD plate as an option, I broke it within a month. After I had it repaired, I painted it with rustoleum Titanium silver metallic. It's now darker than stock with some metallic flake to it.

    Powder coating is holding up just fine. I paid about 50$ to get it powder coated.. a lot more than painting it would cost but holds up 1000x better :thumbsup:

    Paint it. It's a skid. It needs to be repainted every now and then
