    Yes it will fit with modification as shown on my '15 trail. The Radiator support brackets were removed and sides of the TRD skid were cut off to make room. I have seen more 'fashionable' cuts that have been done but I dont see much of a difference in protection. Request to have the plastic filler piece (connects lower bumper to beginning of stock skid) trimmed as to not leave a gap between bumper and skid, or at least hold on to that part and trim yourself. There is a lot of talk regarding this subject at toyota-4runner.org. Hope this helps

    I used RCI for KDSS. If that helps at all.

    Both are options. It seems worth getting a skid plate that allows for easier oil changes if you're going to replace the oem skid anyway.
