    But it's so dark out that pictures wouldn't even do it any justice in the Nati blue.. Pictures mañana at my new favorite spot to get off the road and chill as I enjoy the view! :D

    Sorry for the tease, but I had to drum up some interest to view it. The skid plate went on real nice and easy. 5 minutes and it was on. Makes the truck look a hell of a lot better now!

    I put one on mine about a week after buying along with a bug deflector. I really like the way the silver skid looks on my silver truck.

    They make em look hot! The mod bug bit me a little as soon as I bought it, so far I have bought the tube steps and the skid plates and have done the bed compartments lock mod to the doors. I also bought some tie downs for future shenanigans.

    Right after I took these pics later on in the afternoon I proceeded to break her correctly and got her all muddy! This thing is a 4 wheeling beast :D I'm going to have to do it again real soon because that was way too much fun!

    Does the skid plate block the oil drain plug?

    Hey MGM is real nice. I almost got one but I had to be unique. :D

    No kidding :popcorn: indeed haha

    I did that for two weeks prior to getting mime from my work!

    Thanks alot man! I love the look it has myself!

    I didn't realize it was an addition to the stock skidplate until I threw it on. Its double the protection which is good! Its fairly lightweightbtoo. There's mud lodged in it now though :( which kills its cool factor.

    Just wash it out. I plan on putting bed liner over mine with the addition of a TRD sticker of some sort.

    I want to get the BAJA TRD logo in red and put it in the back of mine as well as debadging it and leaving it all bare minus the TRD logo.

    The mud got caked in there. I went in deep into that puddle of mud.

    Very nice!

    How easy or hard is it to remove it to clean?

    Haha, well I shouldn't call it puddle because a puddle is small, more like a small lake of mud :D

    It's not bad, 4 bolts but I don't feel like taking it off, lol. I guess it's time to bust out the tires brushes!
