    Does anyone know if the front skid plate off of a 2003 will fit the 2005?
    Looks the same (roughly) in the pictures?
    This is the front silver one that is an option.

    Unlikely. Why not get one designed for your truck?

    Edit: I'm not trolling here. It's an honest question. :)

    FJ is the same frame as the 05. Why wouldn't it?

    Excellent question for Budbuilt or AllPro. I'm pretty certain they have different products for the FJ vs. the Tacoma.

    Look at one on the FJ & then one on the Tacoma & tell me how different they look. There was frame thread awhile back & it was pointed out that the FJs & the Tacoma Prerunner, (not sure whether it was Access or Double Cab) share the same frame. Since this a frame attachment item I see it as the same thing. They might even have different part numbers for some screwy reason even tho physically it's most likely the same exact part.

    There may be some similarities. BUT, the FJ follows more the 4Runner than the Tacoma.

    That only depicts different bumper styles & different skid styles. Have a look at the frame/suspension in both of those pics & tell me how they are different. Look closely at the spindles, lcas, frame, shocks, etc. And show me a pic of the TRD skid for the Tacoma & a pic of the TRD skid for the FJ. I believe the OP was refencing the silver oem skid like in my avatar. I'm sure there are several aftermarket ones with different styles for the same vehicle.

    OK, did some looking. Different part numbers, different looking part side by side. Still think frame sharing goes on but here's the side by side on the skids.

    FJ - PT212-35071

    Taco - PT212-35051


    OK, also dug around for the frame thread & it seems that the FJs were having SIMILAR issues with their frames as the Tacomas & both frames were from the SAME frame plant so I'm backin off the frame sharing unless someone else has concrete proof.....just similar, my bad. I stand corrected by myself...or I stand by myself corrected. Either way, not 1st time, probably not the last, LOL.
