    Hey jmanb, take a look at the BDS suspension kit for your truck. It looks like the skid plate will work with the Fabtech kit. Might need a little modification. Most likely you will have to special order it seperately from a BDS dealer.

    BDS should work just fine. I have a 2010 Silverado with 6 inch Fab Tech and used BDS skid plate. I cant see a 2011 and a 2010 being that different !

    I hope this helps.

    While this is an old thread I thought I'd add to it, as I am looking for a skid plate to work with my 6" Fabtech, as well. With none available on Fabtech's site I emailed them and received a response from Armen Mosikian, a Fabtech tech manager:

    "The only skid plate we offer is our desert guard with skid plate, like the one in the photo. We no longer manufacture them and are blowing them out for 250.00 plus freight if you are interested, they will not work with a body lift. Give me a call if interested,

    "


    At 250 bucks plus S&H if I didn't already have winch plans for that location I would consider picking that up. However, it won't work for my needs. I did, however, ask Armen if it was ok to post this information and he said certainly ... and that individuals interested could either email or call; they'll be sold at that price to anyone until supplies run out.
