    hey guys will the All Pro Skid plate work without an all pro bumper.??
    2005+ Tacoma IFS Skid

    can i use this skid while having a stock bumper? ^


    another quastion i had was can i put that westin skid plate on to my TACO without taking off the stock skid plate or does it replace it? doesnt look liek it protects at all?

    still debating on what to get, wanted protection but also a good look and install without drilling or lookign for parts

    I have a All Pro IFS skid with the stock bumper and I am very happy. Very strong and fit well.

    To answer your second question i am trying to figure out how that mounts but it doesn't look like it would do much protecting and would easily get damaged while off roading.

    Ok ill jack it up after work and try to get some pics.

    Just remembered I had a pic i posted here earlier about one of the issues. So the front four bolts fit amazingly on the first try..had a little fuss with passenger bolt(it lined up but dang threads wouldnt engage :p ) the drivers side hole is 1/4-1/2 under the front side. Meaning the plate would have to pushed forward. Problem is I took all the bolts out and just tried to line that one hole up..and i couldnt..the plate was getting pushed down on the back crossmember. Here is a picture of the plate against the crossmember. and even if I could push it forward, the other bolt holes wouldnt allow much movement at all.

    Might take it off and take some measurements to make sure everything is square..it seems odd that i could get one of the two..

    Whoops..sorry for thread hijack :D
