    So I am in need of the plate that goes below the engine that covers the oil filter and the radiator bottom. I for the life of me cannot think of the official name of this part. Mine is rusted out on on side and looks like crap. Plus I hate having to remove it to change the oil. I was going to try and modify it to put a door or something in the area where the filter is but I really don't much feel like doing that since on side is bad. I figure I may as well just try and replace it instead. Anyone have any suggestions and if you changed out yours where did you get it?
    Thanks

    Lol, thanks GNTundra. Yes it is the skid plate. I could not think of the name for nothing...lol. And Joonbug, my Tundra is an 04 so that link you attached doesn't have what I need. Thank you anyway.

    Try yota Jim's in Denver, they might have one. Or find a salvage yard closer to you. Most of them can do an inventory search nation wide.

    I could use one of those too. I will look for a used one somewhere. I'm not gonna pay that much for a new one!

    Wow, that is expensive for something that doesn't do a whole lot of anything but cover an area. Is this part really needed that much? If I can't find one reasonably priced I may just deal with the one I have.
