    I have done alittle searching on here and only seen a few nice skid plates.
    I dont want to bother with the cheesy front TRD one, I want ones that will actually take some abuse.
    I dont plan on doing any hardcore wheeling with my truck, but it will see some rocky places at times, and I want the reassurance that a skid will give me if I end up bashing on a few rocks.
    I would love to find a nice full set like skidrow makes, but they dont make any for my 2011.

    I would also love to find some decently tough aluminum ones, I know they arent as strong as steel, but with the limited offroad mine will see, I think they would be ok, and I would really like to keep the weight down.

    Any suggestions or recommended places to buy these would be great.
    Thanks

    ATO front skid (need more but icon's might fail if I hang anything else from my truck) All-Pro front bumper thanks to a good deal here and a pesky encounter with a rock or 20, total chaos uppers.
    Get the armor tech, its heavy but should outlast the truck.... If you get the full package you might want some bigger springs for the added weight.
