    Good deal!

    I’ll check my stock of hardware this evening to see if I can add another to stock.

    @SMKYTXN when do you expect to have more in stock?

    edit: Nevermind, I see the website says there's one in stock. Maybe I was looking at DCLB or something.

    Awesome, reading the thread to see how people mounted when you have the factory skid. Seems to be remove it or, drill holes. Mount that way. I have bolt protector washers, have a bunch from FourTreks

    Your best bet is to drill holes in the skid to match the factory hanger bolts.

    Cool. I've wheeled hard enough to drag frame. But didnt even touch the stock muffler, maybe a few scratch on the factory gas skid. I think this would work out pretty good.

    I sold my stock off road skid for cash and the straps from a non-OR. Swapping the straps is an easy job.

    Any word on when black DCSB Tacoma skids will be in stock again? Website says you have one blue left but that color is kind of a deal breaker for me.

    Alternatively, how well does this material take paint?

    Buy me a blue one and I'll send you my black one plus a few dollars to make you feel better about the scratches. I'd guess that paint would stick very poorly.

    20210118_144816.jpg Installed 2017 LB relied on all the pictures from this thread. Driver side rear buckle is kinda close to leaf spring. I zip tie it to pull it back. Any pointers with this Nathan?

    Your kit should have come with three metal buckles and one plastic buckle. The plastic buckle goes in that spot. It gives more clearance.

    You’re right, I was wrong. I have a metal buckle installed there, I just went and looked at past pics. I didn’t do anything special to gain clearance and I haven’t had any issues with rubbing.
