It hasn't shown up yet, but I think it is silver in color.
I’m wondering if it’ll fit my Yukon Denali. The front fascia below the bumper seems a bit different but I’d prefer a metal one over the plastic one it cane with. Not to mention, the aluminum color looks much better
This is the schematic of the off-road skid plate part. I wish I would have stumbled on this post earlier. I purchased this part in May 2018 for my Tahoe LTZ.
YES, it comes ONLY in silver aluminum.
And YES, the dealer or any auto paint shop can paint the part to match your body color.
I have mine painted black to match. The z71 off-road skid plate stood up to the challenge last year for me. It took a couple dings up on the logging roads in northern Maine and the paint doesn't even look to be scratched up under there! Not that anyone can see...

I realize this thread is over a yr old but here goes anyway - Just purchased a 2020 Tahoe LS, from all evidence the 2020 gen goes back maybe to 2016 or whatever. Not liking depth of plastic valance so started researching the PPV air deflector.... then sidetracked to these front guards ... meaning both the plastic and aluminum ones that set back, and the unique Z-71 one that stretches to the front lower bumper lip and essentially eliminates the air deflector. The latter seems like it only fits with a special bumper cover that has relief along the bottom edge for it. Can you verify that, or will the Z-71 plate fit with a stock chin on the std. urethane cover?
I'm sorry, but I CANNOT 100% verify that the z71 skid plate will fit the stock 2020 LS front bumper.
I would imagine that it would fit your vehicle fine as I am under the impression that the z71 skid plate attaches directly to the framing and NOT the front fascia.
I ordered my skid plates (3 total pieces for under 2015 Tahoe) online but they were installed at the dealership when my z-71 front bumper was installed. I was only able to purchase the bumper via Chevy dealership and my original LTZ front bumper was kept by the dealership. I forget what the exact lingo was on that situation, but I was told typical for large ordered parts like the front bumper.
Are you planning on lifting/leveling your Tahoe?
It may be worth it to look into the BDS lift kit. They have a skid plate with the kit and would be interesting to see what thickness they are constructing theirs.
You might be looking for a front bumper like this: https://www.rockyridgedealerportal.com/Packages/Tahoe-Stealth mpI'm not sure that the Rocky Ridge Suspension company is still producing for Tahoes, but this might give you some ideas. I really do think custom fabrication is the way to go if cost ($s) is not an issue.
I've actually thought a custom rear bumper could be a cool idea. This custom bumper would have a swing gate capable of holding the spare and maybe a 2.5 gal container (2x) or other. Not sure about design, would want to be able to at least open the rear glass gate with the tire gate closed. Kind of a pain to open the tire gate every single time you want to get into the trunk.
I will try to climb under the truck today and see exactly where the front skid plate is fastened...maybe a picture too.
