    no fix..

    order a aftermarket skid plate...

    my AllPro skid plate has served me well through years of abuse. there are many companies that make a aftermarket skid plate for our tacomas and they are all good quality..so it comes down to personal preference!

    Contact a welder. Drill the end of the crack. Have welder weld the crack. Flap disc to weld. Good as new, functionally.
