    Hey guys - I am looking to purchase a TRD skid plate (PTR60-35160). I have seen a number of posts where members have gotten super good deals on them through sales etc. Are there certain retailers/sellers that are known to have good sales/offers on Tacoma parts throughout the year? I can wait on the purchase if I have an idea when these sales may occur.

    Thanks in advance.

    EBay does 20% off coupons every so often, I also think that is the old part number you have listed.

    The shorter version is because Toyota used the stock photo of a 4runner skid for the Tacoma skid part number. As long as the part number is right that's all that matters.

    Also the new version has the red letters. Wait for eBay. That's the only way to get it for a decent price now

    Ok that makes sense. I will look into an eBay account so the discount is available when offered. Can you tell me how often they have it?

    depends, there's the price point first of all. What can you afford?

    Then there's what's more important to you? Aesthetics or function. The 2nd gen trd skid is more visible but provides little protection as its about the same thickness as your stock splash guards. 3rd gen skid plate provides more protection with 1/4" aluminum and goes down to the engine oil pan but isn't as visible (newer 3rd gen skids have the red TRD logo which helps them *pop* a little more).

    One thing you don't have to worry about but some people do is the 2nd gen skid doesn't interfere with oil changes but the 3rd gen skid plate does. I either have to drop the whole thing or wrench my arm up and over the skid to reach my oil filter. Yours is luckily easily within reach on top.

    I will be purchasing 3rd gen. I just purchased my truck and you made me think whether the dealer would have an issue with the skid plate while performing the oil change under the maintenance plan seeing as it's not stock on my model.

    They really shouldn't. If you have a 3rd gen V6 then the oil filter location is the same across all trims. There is a nifty little access panel on the skid plate that the techs (or you) can remove to get to the oil filter.

    The only time it becomes an issue is with the 2.7L and even then I'd hope that they wouldn't mind dropping the skid, especially an OEM aftermarket one.

    whtstcp: hey wassup. thanks for the insight. i think my price point is open, havent really priced anything out yet. when i had my 2013 i purchased the trd skid from the dealer and i remember that puppy being a couple hundred. so anywhere around there would be prime. im also aint gonna lie, its gonna be purely aesthetic. think it gives the truck a more complete look, plus i can take off that chinspoiler or whatever that is lol.

    hmm well if you're an aesthetics type of guy then I imagine a lift is coming up soon or is already in place. In which case I think the 3rd gen would be more visible and provide you with enough aesthetics as well as giving you the "just in case" protection. I honestly think that the 2nd gen skid suits the 2nd gens better and the 3rd gen skid fits the 3rd gens better in terms of looks. I have a 2nd gen tacoma with the 3rd gen skid and it just doesn't look right lol I did it for the protection though.

    whatstcp: lol actually with this truck not gonna do any lift. just leave it stock height. i been there with the 13, being all oily and lifting it with a full icon 10". with this build, just gonna do odds and ends. i guess im gonna do my vision of what a trd sport tacoma can look like since theres no xrunner variant for this gen. i gotta admit i do miss my xrunner.
