Skid plate fail!!!

Recently went for a Sunday stroll to the local grocery store and hit a small pot hole!! Needless to say, the factory skid plate didn't hold up to the challenge. I've done some searches but haven't really gotten anything good to pop up on armor to replace this bad boy. Does anyone (sure there are) have any recommendations as to what would be a good route to go in? fab shops ot what-not. I'm not spending a thousand on a damn skid plate so hopefully this will be fairly reasonable. thanks for any help!

Pretty sure it works for all 2007+ Tundra. Someone else may be able to add more info here or you can try searching.

That is what I will likely go with whenever I get around to buying. Had thought about seeing if they will do a group buy or not.

I like the filter door. That's a nice touch.

Pothole my ass. You were out offroading. If you hit a pothole big enough to do all that you most likely need an alignment on your truck now as well LOL.

I think the stock skid plate is only aluminum if I recall, I've hit a hell of a lot of stuff with mine and haven't done that much damage. Did you hit a tree stump in a mud hole or something? Check for lower engine damage and possible lower radiator area damage too.

Stock is thin steel.
