    I have the OEM skid plate that comes with the TRD package. I'd be glad to part with it for half what they cost new (I can get the new part quoted pretty easy). PM me if you are interested.

    That said, if you are going off road, I'd say get a steel skid. The plastic one is not bad but you would not want to take a hard hit on it. It will keep you from poking a hole in your tank but it is not steel...
