    Had my OEM TRD Pro skid plate off tonight. I painted this plate dark grey when I first got it because I didn’t like the look. It’s been repainted a couple times over the years.

    I enjoyed having a look at it. A lot of memories locked up in every gouge. Over four years of doing its duty. It has that look you can only get through honest use. No faux-relic treatment here.

    Anyways…….certainly not the most abused plate on this site. Lots of peeps here going way harder and gnarlier than I would ever care to. Still, fun to look at.

    Maybe it’s time for bigger tires and more lift!! :D

    Someone here was recently lamenting about corrosion possibly making his TRD skid look bad. :)

    Nice to see that TRD skid plate doing it’s job. And nice to see that we all don’t need heavy steel skid plates too.

    Looks great. I'm sold. I would have thought they would fold and crack but that thing has taken some decent hits and scrapes.
