    so I picked up a used trd skid plate today, from the looks of it I was thinking I knew how to install but now that I have it I really don't get it. Any help and picks would help thanks.

    it's to dark out now for pic's.but it's a trd skid the gray (mine will be blacked out my the end of the night) one that meets the bumper.i get how to bolt the back up but it's the front I don't get.what I'm thinking is the two bolts on the bumper brace are used for the front?

    The rear section gets tucked onto the rear bolts of the oem skid plate, then the front, the two original bolts holding the oem skid plate comes off and the pre-attached bolts on the trd skid plate goes back in their place. You will be left with two bolts off the oem skid plate after you're done.
