TRD PT938-00140 front skid plate

Read both stickies for skid plates and as many posts as I can handle.

Forest and logging roads and a few through the woods trails, no rock crawling.

My 2013 FJ has the engine skid but nothing between that and the front bumper (US Offroad winch mount) Call to USOR, their mount has the same dimensions as a stock bumper.

The only damage I've sustained in 2.5 yrs was to the window washer bottle (at Florence). A little too much speed for the approach angle. Haven't gotten to it yet . Front washer works but rear doesn't. Also when filled to the brim, leaks until level is below the neck.

Don't know that the front skid would help with that but I'd feel better knowing a limb wouldn't get jammed up there.

Was looking at the Ricochet but it does both the engine and front. The TRD looks good and I would think works well also.

Just fishing for some thoughts.

Thanks,
Lee

I just installed the TRD one and it seems pretty solid 1/4" aluminum
I got mine line-x coated as well for added strength
Easy to install

Re: TRD PT938-00140 front skid plate

I've replaced the standard front skid plate on my '10 with the TRD one. It's definitely a lot more substantial than the OEM. Thicker aluminum and also wider coverage along with the extended piece closing the gap to the front bumper. I like it a lot!

Thats great. According to camelcamelcamel, this is just about the cheapest price it has been for the past two years.
