    i cant recall any company with a production run skid plate for body lift trucks...

    you can try a fabrication company to build one...

    member BeefedTaco is great to deal with and he can make just about anything...

    Why would it wad panties? If it is a good vendor and a good product then no panties will be wadded. We don't get all butt hurt when other forums are referenced.

    heres one for you guys. i like the procomp skid plate but they say on theyre site it only works with a procomp 6-inch lift(mine is a fabtech 6-inch). does anyone know will it work for me? i think the hole it only works with the procomp lift thing might just be a sales line.

    for the first gen tacos, Pro Comp drop bracket lift is 4" not 6"

    plus you have a body lift, so it likely won't line up...
