    There are at least 5 companies that are vendors on here that make nice skidplates. Take a look at Relentless, Armor Tech, Elite OR, Budbuilt, BAMF they all make good stuff

    Why not get one from a metal supplier and cut it yourself?

    Here's a place with 1/8" aluminum sheet I found. I know you said you don't like shipping but maybe try a semi local place to you and see if they can order it. They want 37.17 for a piece of T6 aluminum 24"x24". That's not bad if shipping doesn't kill it.

    I haven't dealt with them just found them on google.
