    I've had some brutal luck lately with my 2013 Tacoma. Place I got my Tacoma serviced for a bunch of unrelated issues "forgot" to put my skid plate back on. Before I even noticed, I had moved out of state and had to have them mail it to me (crazy I know). Anyways, when they mailed it to me, they somehow lost multiple bolts that attach the skid plate to the body of the truck. The skid plate I’m referencing is PT212-35075, not the stock "drip catch" plate. I've looked online everywhere and it doesn't seem like Toyota sells the bolts needed to replace those. Does anyone know what sizes they are and what other things I need? I know there's like a metal spacer thats about half an inch thick on 2 of the bolts that holds it away from the drip plate as well. Would appreciate some insight.

    Thanks

    They are M8-1.25 thread I believe 35mm long? Not sure but I just replaced then using flange head bolts washers. As for the spacers I used nylon spacers you get at home depot in the hardware section I think an inch long. Go to HD or a Fastenal

    Buy grade 8 while you're at it. I can't stress this enough. Also, put some anti-seize or grease on the threads before installation.
