2005-2022 Toyota Tacoma Gas Skid:

This BAMF Gas Tank skid is designed to replace the factory plastic gas tank skid found on TRD Off Road Models. If your vehicle did not come equipped with a factory gas tank skid you will need to replace your gas tank straps with the TRD Off Road version straps, Toyota P/N 7760104020 & 7760204020

All skids are laser cut & formed from 11ga steel or .190" 5052 Aluminum

Models that do not have factory skid will need tank hangers with attachment points (standard on TRD off road models).


Should be done with ¼ tank of gas or less, the tank expands and makes it more difficult to get the nuts started. 
  1. Remove the factory plastic skid (TRD Off Road Models). The (4) nuts will be reused for the new skid plate. NOTE: If you do not have a factory skid you will need to purchase new gas tank hanger straps for the TRD Off Road model, they have the necessary studs required for installation. 
  2. Lift Gas-skid with a jack and align the studs with the 4 mounting holes. You may need to apply pressure with the jack near the studs to allow enough stud to be exposed to get the nut started. 
  3. Once all of the nuts are in place you can install the front bolts (provided 3/8” hardware) There is a custom washer plate that goes on top of the cross-member that the bolts go thru. Add the washers and nuts and tighten.
  4.  If you have a double cab long bed configuration you will need to install the extension plate at the front of the skid flange, this will extend to the cross-member. 
  5. The extension plate goes below the cross-member and the rectangular washer plate goes on top of the cross-member. 
  6. Final tightening Work your way around the skid tightening up the bolts evenly. 
Due to the variation in vehicles minor modification to the hole locations may be required. This can be done with a small grinder or Dremel tool. We have test fitted your skid plates to several vehicles and have found subtle differences, the hole locations on the skids are based on the average found from all vehicles test fitted.
