    Anyone know of a skid plate that works with a 6" Fabtech lift on a 2011 Silverado? Maybe I missed it but didn't see one on their website.

    Look at some other lift kit manufactures. On my '05 Silverado I have a 6" Skyjacker lift with there skid plate that attaches to the lower Skyjacker subframe, I then installed a Rancho skid plate that attaches to the front lower control arm bolts and runs up to the trucks frame behind the bumper. You can see this in my lastest photo album.

    So it looks like pretty standard mounting location and that's about what I'm looking for. Thanks!

    Why would you want to have a rancho Skid Plate with a Fabtech Lift? That doesn't make sense to me? Just curious...:lol:

    I'm not necessarily looking for a Rancho. I would actually prefer one that's not branded at all. I'm more asking about skid plates that will actually work with the Fabtech.

    Oh okay man well which ever you choose some how you should be able to mod it very easily to work! I'm guessing most aren't that thick and could do some fab work too it pretty easy! Do you still have that Boylift forsale? I might have to jump on that here in a week or two!

    Rockstarr, the reason for the double skid plate is for more protection and they reinforce the front suspension when off-roading. If you look at my photo album you can see the Rancho skid plate thats at a angle, then the Skyjacker plate is mounted flat under the suspension subframe so the two skid plate blend into each other. This works great when rolling over logs, rocks etc...
