    Hey all....what skid plate would you recommend for my 2016 4R Trail with KDSS? I can’t use the OEM Trd skid plate....what’s everyone using?

    Thanks!

    You can use the TRD but you have to modify it. There are write-ups on the internet about that option. I have the RCI aluminum skids and they have been great. Bud built also makes a great skid. Full disclosure, I don't have KDSS but pretty sure both companies offer skids for it

    I ordered BudBuilt skids and sliders, I have not received them yet but I will write up and post pics, maybe do a thread when I get everything.

    I’m keeping my factory TRD but I would go full RCI otherwise. I did on my taco and found them to be to be top quality. Just added their LCA, fuel, and rear dif to my current set up!

    Things with stuff, but nothing much
    I have RCI raw aluminum. Good stuff. IMO another benefit (other than protection) to the aftermarket skids is that you don't have to drop them to change the oil filter.
