Trd skid plate causing damage to kdss?

Hey all,

I read a forum on another 4R site about a trimmed to fit TRD skid plate causing damage to the kdss when off-roading.

Has anyone else experienced this? I bought the skid plate and may consider returning it if itíll damage something expensive like the kdss.

Been running one for about a year. Doesnt look like it hit anywhere so I dont imagine it would cause any damage as long as you hack the sides enough to clear the swaybars full travel.

the damage is probably from not trimming enough. but really once you trim it you are altering the structural integrity. you might as well get a kdss specific skid plate from another maker. unless you are in it for looks.

I definitely like the look, I was going to powder coat it and whatnot, but if itís not protecting as it should or causing damage then itís pointless. Iím not doing any heavy off-roading or rock crawling, mainly a dd, camping, overland. But for the money Iíd want function as much as fashion.

Good to know, may just make sure itís trimmed down properly. Thank you!

Return it and buy one designed for KDSS. Why trim something that needs structural integrity?
