Default Skid plate

any one know of a good, but inexpensive aftermarket front skid plate (radiator) that will go on my 2003 ranger? ****preferably a NO drill/modify install**** or any one know where to buy the stock 2003 front skid plate. pictures of the stock skid plate would be helpful as well!

your FX4 didn't come with a skid?? Ford sells a skid for the front that is bolt on. Not much to it though, I would see if you could find a fab shop that could make ya one that is stronger and able to use the stock mount points.

they don't have real fx4's...the ones that count. they've just got normal xlt's with fx4 stickers slapped on 'em. lol.




no one makes aftermarket skids for these trucks. you're stuck to trying to find a nice one at a junkyard(fat chance....they're all effed up) or getting someone to fab you one up.

please do not spend 210 dollars on a factory skid plate. You can get whatever you want made that will actually protect for 100 bucks
