As near as I can tell they were all plastic until you get into the F150 4x4"s.
I need 2 of them now, next trip to ASY I'll look for them among other things.

I've never seen a plastic cover before, aside from the clear ones.

This shows how slow I am, or maybe that I don't spend enough time under my 02 XLT 4x4 Ranger. The one on it is metal, the 92 X that is becoming a 86 B II, is plastic, as is the one on my 92 Lincoln Mark VII. The rear covers on the 2x4 Ranger's at the ASY's I have been at lately, are also plastic.
I guess we should all go out in the rain and find out who has plastic and who has metal.

Sorry about the screw up.
