    no says I! i bent the one in half on the work truck just by backing up. Of course i do work in a strip pit, got it hung on a small rock. the reg. steel one is better than the aluminum ornament. has higher clearance.

    According to the Sparks Toyota website, the TRD skid plate part number is the same for the 2012s and 2010s: p/n PT212-35075.

    MSRP is $200 and online price is around $160, so $130 seems like a good deal to me.

    I got one for looks too :D

    Yeah I did and you are right they are cheaper but it gives me something to do today and no shipping involved also, I gather that 2010 skid plate and 2013 skid plate are the same

    i do like the way they look. as for price, its ok. keep looking on the forum for other members selling theirs. you may find one less expensive. this thread reminds me i need to go see if i can bend the TRD one back and put it back on the work truck, it is extra protection. dual skid plates. lol.

    i did think about buying one for my truck, but im holding off to get a plate bumper, so there's no need for one.

    only 2 bolts. make sure they come with it when you pick it up. also look on the back to make sure the brackets are on it.

    lol ive done this with my wife, i painted my rims and waited to see how long it took till she noticed....about 3 days.

    fyi it should fit your truck. i wanna say undercarriage is the same, where you would be bolting it.
    do you have the stock black skid plate on your truck now? you may need it to help hold the TRD one.

    It took my girl one ride about 30 seconds to realize that your "Truck seems a little loud is the muffler broken" I had to come clean about the new TRD exhaust I just installed. Now if only I could remember to complement her that quick when she changes her hair or nails or whatever I would be in good shape!

    And just for a little controversy anytime I do CL deals I bring along this stranded equipment especially when the guy wants to meet off the highway at a park and ride

    we have alot of .380 on the shelves. i guess people don't prefer it. Its good for me though, i bought my wife the matching Taurus .380 TCP. at least i can get ammo when i want for it.
