Pre facelift TRD skid plate question

I recently replaced the stock skid on my 2012 SR5 because it had developed a rust hole. I removed the front bumper plastic lower cover as seen in the photos below. My question is, what to do with these splash guards or whatever they are? Secure them some how or just remove them as well? Other ideas?

It appears that Toyota made a change sometime between your 2012 and the 2014 4Runner in that area. In 2014+ models (I have a 2018, but the installation instructions for the TRD skid plate are for 2014+), there is no splash plate in that area. Thus, I would just leave them off.

Yeah, I'm leaning towards taking them off, unless someone knows of some compelling reason to leave them and secure them? They're kinda floppy right now.
