    My truck has the crappy toyota black skid plate which I want to get rid of. After much hmm'ing and haw'ing I've decided I def don't want a westin/ares style bull bar as they aren't really functional and I can't afford a all-pro style bumper (yet). so I was thinking for the moment I'd get a new skid plate,something silver etc...

    are the trd aluminum skid plates any good?

    If your endstate is to get an all-pro bumper, then i'd sell the plate you have now and just save up for that. No need for you to buy another skid plate, if youre only going to end up getting the all-pro bumper

    If you're going to eventually get the All-Pro bumper, why not just pick up the All-Pro skid now? It's like $270 + shipping from their site. The bumper does not replace the skid.... and trust me the stock skid is useless lol.
