    Trying to decide on buying the TRD front skid plate for my truck. Looks like they don't last long in the FS forum when they show up. Just finding it hard to pay $180+ on Ebay for one. Its more for looks than anything.

    stock skids are crap for wheeling, but if you're going for looks, go for it. Personally, I like how they look; just wish they werent so thin

    Yeah no wheeling here, I wouldn't even consider this for real protection. I just wanted it for looks more than anything. Thanks

    Looks great and in my opinion is more than adequate for moderate off roading. Not crazy rock crawling or log jumping but rough fire roads with occassional rocks and streams it will do you well. Plus, it is cool.

    What they do is keep sticks and such from getting to the radiator. I didn't have 500 miles on my '09 before I punched it on a stick while getting firewood, it actually jammed between the radiator and A/C condenser. Replaced the radiator and put on the skid...so much for "free" firewood!
