Default Skid plates (3)

Crusin the Internet & see that there are 3 skid plates listed for the FX4.

Name them please.

I know one is for the transfer case.

What are the other 2 protecting??

  • Gas tank
  • Radiator / a/c condenser / steering cooler / steering rack
  • Transfer Case

Ford called it "Fore/Mid/Aft protection" I believe.


It's my understanding that all '10+ 4x4's got all 3. But I'm not 100% sure on that.

Looks like a factory skid to me...




anywho...here's another member's factory skid, photo courtesy of Power Ranger...



No the fox sticker isn't factory. lol.


And here's one straight from the build-it-yourself thingy on Ford's website. Shows it's standard on Sport 4x4's. Optional on XLT Supercab 4x4. So you should have it on yours.
