    TRD pro front bumper cover swap, TRD pro roof rack, TRD pro skid plate, raptor lights.
    100% thanks to this group for all the resources, but here is my 2021 limited with the TRD pro front bumper swap. It was a little tricky with all the sensors. Roughly 6 hours of work and I am no mechanic. Next step is the skid plate. 03E68BE9-4D2D-4FDF-9C01-2BC2B1B42986.jpg 2D9C1275-8C68-4F19-ADDA-DFD59DFD56AC.jpg

    I see you have the TRD roof rack too. Do you plan on changing the tires and wheels too?

    If that's a Limited it shouldn't have KDSS.

    I can’t believe how much difference a bumper swap makes. Its like turning a lexus into a Toyota with one change.

    Yeah it’s weird, but i see there marketing strategy, it makes it look all grown up. You get to choose, truck or lexus.

    Yes but why not offer the limited with the same Sr5 or TRD bumpers ? Why reuse the older style rockers, rear bumper from 2010 ? Why make a new bumper and add chrome ?

    Well, if he did then he shouldn't have to notch out his skid plate.

    If you want it to look like a Pro, why not just save your pennies and buy a Pro?

    Pro doesn't have ventilated seats, which is the one reason I'd pick a Limited.

    it’s not that limited guys want to look like a pro, most just want to get rid of the ugly chrome bumper. Other then 2021 pros, limited have extra features that the pro didn’t have. Has nothing to do with saving extra pennies :boink:

    Not sure what I want to do with it after, leaning hard on new wheels. But yeah the skid plate won’t fit on it now not sure if it’s KDSS or xreas. All I k ow is it doesn’t fit lol

    it’s a limited so it has xreas. But xreas has no effect on the skid plate. What does not fit ?

    do you have spacers and longer bolts ?

    you don’t have kdss. I circled the sway bar solid brackets. For what kind of skid plate are you trying to install. I have a trd pro skid plate on my limited. Unless you did a diff droop, radiator support drop or sway bar drop, the trd pro skid plate bolts right up with the standard skid hardware
