    I'll be removing all 3 pieces of the OEM front skid plates tomorrow. Anyone interested in them? Coming off a 2016 SR5 with 10,700 miles on it. Never wheeled, skids are in perfect shape. Actually recently put a fresh coat of paint on them since I clean and paint everything under the truck 2-3 times a year. $50 OBO

    What are you putting in place of the OE skids?

    I’m confused. :(. I just received my aluminum RCI skid plate yesterday for my 2018 4Runner TRDORP w/KDSS and it’s a different style than the one shown. The “portholes” are not there and there are six bolt holes for mounting, not four. I don’t know which style is newer and both are shown on their website. It fits fine but IMO doesn’t look quite as good. The mixture of styles RCI is providing is kinda confusing.

    The skid for KDSS and non KDSS are different. Here's mine, non KDSS which is what they picture on the website.

    You’re right Chris, but it’s not pointed out on the webpage. In fact, even though it's hard to tell because they're pictured in black, both are shown. Strangely, yours with only four mounting points isn’t shown at all. I'm still waiting for the fill plate, but you can see that this plate has a very different profile from the ones usually shown.

    Yeah i'm not a fan of that design at all. If you hit something with it, it'll be like hitting a wall. There isn't much angle to it which isn't great for sliding over things.

    It does appear that way. We'll see if it's any better when I get the filer plate installed.
