Skid Plates question on SR5 model

    4Runner SR5 (base model)
    I just purchased a 2016 SR5 base model. My understanding is it comes with one skid plate up front for the radiator but that skid plate leaves something to be desired. As I plan to go offroad a couple of times per month during the summer.... not really rock crawling but the roads can become rough with severe rutting...I would like to add more protection underneath.
    Questions:
    1. Are TRD skid plates interchangeable on an SR5?
    2. Are OEM skid plates sufficient in strength and quality or should I look at after market skid plates? What after market skid plates would you recommend?

    Thanks! I am really enjoying reading the postings on this forum.

    Welcome.
    Yes, the TRD Pro skid will fit on an SR5, however it will not offer much added protection. Aftermarket is the way to go for skids. We will be officially releasing our 5th gen skids later this year, have a couple front skids already out there that have been working well for our customers and we'll be adding transmission, transfer case and gas tank skids as well. Aluminum would be good for light duty but functional protection without adding too much weight
