    I have one I bought from another guy on here, I parted the truck. Its a custom made beefy skid plate. If you have the flat crossmember this will work fine. My 84 K10 had the flat one. It hugs the 208 real nice. I will send some pics tonight from my comp at home if you want.

    $50 shipped to you

    Great! Go ahead and send me the pics if you can. I'll have to check my cross member tonight when I get home, not sure if its the flat kind or not. Thanks.

    did you ever get one. I have the one you need. This works with the W shaped crossmember.

    That plate won't work on the '85. The '85 and '86 plates are flatter than yours. He needs a plate that fits only one of those two years.

    Yes, but it also looks like the double hump but the flanges on the sides are more a "V" shape which will work for your plate.
