    Hey guys, has anyone ever put a bull bar and a TRD skid plate on? I just bought the skid plate now I kinda realize that the skid plate pre-cut hole is a little short for my bullbar. So what should I do?:confused:

    you can mod it to fit. you may need to enlarge the holes a bit, and if its hitting, you can make or buy some spacers that are just big enough for clearance.

    Give me your truck and buy one that doesn't have a bull bar... that way you can add the skid plate to the new one...:D

    Seriously though, your definitely gonna have to make some modifications for it to fit...

    im just saying that if there is a clearance issue, you may be able to get some sort of spacer(lowes/home depot...both have a vast selection) that will allow fitment without touching or having to do alot of cutting.

    can you post a pic....maybe one of us can help you figure it out if we have a visual.:)

    ah....that may be a pain in the arse there. the trd skid comes up a pretty good ways there.

    not trying to be funny, but do you still want the skid with the bull bar....ont really get to see the skid real good with the bar there. if you want to sell it.....send a pm to slimcubby.....he is looking for that exact skid plate.

    if you are still wanting to keep it........you may need to notch the skid to get the bull bar to fit with the skid......im just not real sure buddy.
