depends on which skid plate the front one is well up front there cold be a t-case one if you have 4x4 which is on the frame and there could be a gas tank one also which is on the bottom of the gas tank...

here is mine its the stock stainless on the front its a little more visible yours will be black...

I see that, it should either cover the front differential, transfer-case (4x4 only), or fuel tank... or maybe all 3 in separate pieces

Hey Holly... quick look at Ford.ca and build your vehicle option... looks like 4x2 has standard fuel tank skid plate. 4x4 has 3 skids...

Ok ill ring in here. You "could have" afforded a 4x4, a low mileage preowned one . Your truck has the 4x4 suspension because it is a Sport, not because of extended cab. The pre 06 extended cab rangers that were not sports or edges were coil sprung fronts. Just a little information for ya

Stone is right, depends on which u have. Seeing as u dont have a transfer case, u either have the front one or the gas tank one.

nah no way i could have afforded a 4x4 new... and i dont trust used much for daily drivers we've had too much bad luck with them. I woulda been an idiot to trade a new low mileage super clean mustang for a used truck. My parents already think im mad for even trading the stang for a ranger! But im happy with it. Although if i had enough income coming in i would SO take out a loan for 12K and pick up the 05 FX4 the dealership has on the used lot..i noticed in todays paper they had dropped the price down.

Your 50% right and 50% wrong. Yes she has it because its a sport, but also because its an extcab. The regular cabs have xlt suspension.
