I went back to the dealership with the brochure and web site printed off. They agreed it should've been on there and ordered 1 and installed it. It's a black steel one.
damn did you have to pay for it? or since it was adverstised you got it for free?

I'd like to have a gas tank skid plate, but not a front one. I'm going to keep my eye out for one, now.

You already paid for it when you bought the truck. It's part of the 4x2 Sport package. It's just the front skid plate. The 4x4 has 3. You shouldn't have to pay for it. I didn't.

Are the Sport trucks built on 4x4 frames (torsion bars)? Just wondering. I really like them.

The 2011 Canadian brochure says:
Fuel tank skid plate (4x2)
Fore, mid and aft skid plates (4x4)

The 2011 US brochure only says:
Fore, mid and aft skid plates (4x4)

My 98 xlt 4x4 project truck I bought isn't an offroad package, but it had a gas tank and transfer case skid plates, but no front skid.
I took both of them off, sandblasted the transfer case one, painted it yellow and put it on my 99 xlt 4x4. Going to do the same to the gas tanks skid soon.

Why the 98 had 2 of the skids and not the front one is beyond me. Previous owner must have taken it off.
Buy the truck isn't an offtoad package one, so don't know why it had any skids at all.

It's only the transfer case one, haven't done the gas tank skid plate yet, and still have to get a front skid plate.

Here is a link off the Ford website. Click on the exterior tab, under the truck, and under protection you'll see skid plate listed for the 4x2. Good luck at the dealership.

I'm not 100% certain, but I don't think one will fit on your truck.
