Hello. I want to install a TRD lower front brace (PTR041700102) on my 2005 Spyder. See below

PTR041700102

. My problem is that it will not install unless I remove the factory bracing (new components in pic below, provided by the Spyder King, Phats).

Updated Bracing

 

My question is whether you think that this is a good idea (I already bought the brace) if my goal is to better brace this area. Thanks in advance! Keep in mind that I am a noob at this so do not worry about "talking down to me" if there is something I need to know.

As far as I understand, that front TRD brace won't fit the 04+ cars with the factory bracing. You are probably better off with the OEM bracing.

The brace should install if you remove the 3 bars in the "middle".  It replaces those and adds another lateral bar up front.  You will leave the meaty looking metal pieces there, but remove the 3 tubular bars.  keep the hardware though since you might need to re-use them.

This is what I thought might work. I will try it and report.
