Default skid plate issue

Im not sure this is the right thread but I cant seem to find full skid plates anywhere. I have a 2002, 2 door, 4X4, 4.3 V6 and I have not seen one skid plate anywhere. I dont have the tools to fab one up either. Any help on where I might be able to find one would be very appreciated. Its not a replacement either. I need a full length cover everything skid plate.

LMC sells individual skid plates to cover the tcase and the gas tank, as well as better options for the front diff. If hes looking to pan the bottom, he's going to have to go custom.

What are you trying to protect? There are plenty of plates around... you just gotta go shopping. As was mentioned above, LMC has a skid plates for engine, tranny and xfer case for your Blazer. If you are doing something weird then you will have to find a fabricator and spend some cash.

thanks guys. Im really only looking to protect the important things down there but if they sold a full skid then i figured it might help me slide over obstacles better. The individual skid plates add up in price as well.

Yea they can get pricey...you could always be a little more strategic in your line choice. The frame slides nicely over stuff...

Then again, the entire underside of my muffler is concave now from dropping onto a rather large rock while crossing a shallow stream...
