    I’ve read other posts about some people having skid plate noise/creeking. Has anyone just removed the skid plate all together? If so, has anyone one had problems with exposing those parts of the engine over time? I don’t off-road at all, just city/country roads.

    Some of the trims don’t come with the skid plate. Should be no issue. But I think you should just figure out how to stop squeak. You have a TRD Pro and one of the things that makes it the pro is the nice skid plate that comes with it.

    I don’t want to but it’s an obnoxious metal shifting on metal noise. I’ve had 2 local Toyota dealerships try to remedy it but the noise is silenced only for a short time.

    And you said it had been making that noise since you bought it. It really sounded like something loose in the suspension. But all it is is the bully dog adapter to the fender well. Just a little slop. It was funny, it was the first thing I checked under the hood. Like I was drawn to it.


    Be one with the Tundra

    No problem running without but that would be a huge waste for what amounts to a $15 fix. Loosen the bolts and place rubber backed tape around the perimeter. then tighten it back up. problem solved.

    I did this 2 years ago, and not a peep since.

    Thank you bobeast. That’s the concept I had envisioned-some type of rubber membrane. Gonna give it a shot. Appreciate the suggestion.

    I took my truck to get an oil change and the idiot guy doing it was starting to take out the skid plate bolts. Luckily I was watching him and told him there's an access panel for that. He put the bolts back without torquing them. I was pissed. Which reminds me, I gotta retorque them back to specs.
