    Thanks for the compliments guys! The one above is going to a gal in HI. This one went to Puerto Rico a year or 2 ago. The aluminum plate can be replaced by a weld in steel plate too for more abuse. But I just love the look the aluminum gives.

    That kicks butt!

    For the 1st gen install, is that an aftermarket sway bar on the front? Or is the skid plate compatible with the stock sway bar?

    The 6 lug skid plate is planned for the upcoming months. I need a donor truck for a day or 2. It's been on the to do list for too long and me getting backed up from my big move didn't help, and like the DCLB sliders, tube bumpers, swingout tire carrier, etc...they're all on my to do yesterday list.

    These 5 lug skids can be found on my website streetacos.com with some different options, and people can always PM or e-mail me too. They can be found on my products page by searching "skid plates". My contact info is on the "contact us" page on my website.

    I really appreciate all the good feedback from you guys, it always means a lot to me. I work hard to offer quality products for less than the big guys.

    Brian,

    I have a 1st gen 6 lug too so if you cant find a donor truck let me know and im sure we can work something out.

    Getting my truck back today and have some ideas to play with, stuff that I think you may enjoy playing with.

    I just did another one of these 2nd gen 5 lug skid plates and added a 2nd bar behind the main plate, and this one has holes in it too. (obviously) It's on it's way to HI. :thumbsup:
