Rusted out front skid plate

Hi everyone, been awhile, life goes by fast... couldn't believe I was catching up on some service at 90000 already!

Anyway, while underneath doing a fluid change out this weekend I noticed the front skid plate is crumbling away in rust. Live in Northern VA so usually little snow, salt, etc... Rest of undercarriage looked good for 90K miles as well. I was shocked, never expected to see that level of rust

Dealer quoted $208 for the stock one which seemed pretty good, I'm having trouble finding that part number. I got 51405A online but can't find any (so far) in stock or cost. They also quoted the TRD Aluminum plate for $276... on order.

I'm tempted, TRD and it's aluminum, but my winch bumper requires removing the "tabs" the plate swings down on.

Finally my real question is what say you if you were on a budget? Finances are tight right now with school and work. Just wondering if I'm overlooking something, even in finding a stocker...

Thanks all,
Jeff

Why not just go with an aftermarket brand. My Bud Built skid is 1000x better than the OEM tin foil piece of...

First question do you use it? Very few people do anything that would require a skid plate. If money is an issue, get a stock one that someone is tossing. Lfd off road starts at 179.00

Really donít need an upgraded version. Stocker has been fine for the wheeling I do and thatís decreased a lot lately.

Price is really the largest factor. RCI and Schrockworks are waaaay to much. Will definitely check out LFD, thanks!

Anyone have the correct part # or even by chance have a take off they wanna get rid of?

Thanks everyone,
Jeff

Even if you donít wheel, itís nice to do some armoring of your undercarriage. Iíve hit a few things over the years with all the miles and itís always good to have a little more protection to minimize damage.

If you poke around local social media 4Runner pages in Nova you're bound to find one. This is the first thing that many people ditch.

To order one, the shipping will get you. I'd attempt to find one local to you.

Precisely what Iím hoping/looking for. Seen a few on eBay and w/shipping itís more than the dealer.

Trust me, I get the added bonus the thicker ones give, and or the rust free worries of aluminum... itís simply not in the budget.

I've got one sitting under my stairs doing nothing that I would happily donate to your cause for the cost of shipping, but I can't imagine shipping it across the country would make much financial sense from Oregon to NOVA

Unsure where in VA you are, there is a RVA Toyota Trucks FB page. Unsure if there are others, I'd assume there are beach area and NOVA pages.

I'd search locally + used. Most people ditch the OEM one for $50.

^^ This. If you're on a tight budget check the classifieds here or via one of the local regional groups here:
https://www.toyota-4runner.org/4runn...ux-surf-clubs/
There is a parts section in each of them and maybe you can find a local 4runner owner who is looking to clean out their side yard after upgrading armor.

I sold mine for a cup of coffee and a doughnut and even met the guy half way between his house and mine. I just wanted to get rid of the thing and find it a new home. You'll be able to find something for sure.

If the dealership is quoting you +$200 and you're seriously thinking of paying that, I would suggest saving up another $100 and just get an RCI or something.

As others have said, look on craigslist. I practically gave my skids away or actually did give them away for free. Try your luck there.
