They have. Synergy Offroad was making them but they've stopped until the fall ( if they start up again at all ).

I probably would be interested in getting a set of the aluminum skidplates for my 06 Colorado z85. Do you have plans for these in the near future? :)

But it is a possibility. Anyway thanks for the welcome back and I will be around more often. On another note does anyone know of a redesign on the Colly coming up soon? I would love to see if there is a new design on the way.
This may sound funny, but I have looked for these items for over 3 months, emailed many suppliers and nothing, nada, not one lead on a pair. Some guy stated he was making them, but was "out". I have emailed in 3 or 4 different times and I finally gave up on him.

I've got the photos and measurements over to my folks house. The guy across the street is a metal fab/welder business owner. Just waiting for a quote.

I am time pressed right now because the military is sending me out for 8 months and I may be out the door in 10 days.

I may be stuck using the 1.25 inch lift shackles that E-Prey sold me as "2" inch ones for the rest of this year.

So the real question is this, are you making them and how much?

DOH!

Like I said, I am super stressed at the moment. I had 6 weeks to leave the USA to defend the US on it's WOGT, today they are telling me I need to leave in 10 days...........It's a bit overloaded here. Family is currently out of state. Full time college student. Full time AD Navy. Only one in the office because 1 co-worker is in TX and the other is also in the middle of the WOGT.....

I'll try to read closer on the lines next time.

Thank you
Guy

They are in stock now yes. But shipping takes time, and to get them there faster is actually more money then people think. For a couple days service is basically the same as the shackles cost.

Can someone post new pics of the skid plates? I can't seem to find any of the old pics using Search.

Will these work for 2wd with body lift?? or will they stick out bad?

Well, if I do not leave until JULY 14th like I am SUPPOSED to do, I would have time to get them in, installed, and done.

I have to wonder how I can help recover the other purchase where I was ripped. I am tempted to file a claim against the seller, and I am certaintly NOT going to sell them and claim ignorance like they did to me.

I doubt anyone here wants a mismatched finish set of 1 1/4 lift shackles for the colorado/S-10 truck. Even at a good price!

If I am leaving in 10 days, I will perhaps use what I have now to get the new shocks on, and perhaps with only a mini lift that will have to do until next year.

No worries man. I wasn't trying to hate on you - just pointing out.

BTW: Thanks for your service!
