    Ive only seen TRD skids fit with DB, or custom that stops where the bracket starts

    sorry for the slow response, but it is the factory skid, not trd. I don't know if it is something that would serve the purpose for what you want it for, but it bolts up with the two front bolts and the rear rests against the rcd subframe. Its definitely tight enough for every day use and possibly some light off-roading . Heavy off roading may bend it all to crap :notsure:
