Hey guys I need to know were to find resonably priced skid plates for front and rear diff and I really need an engine bay cover stock plastic one or aftermarket aluminum/metal. Does anyone have any OEM part numbers for any?

Thanks

IMO, those diff. skid plates are boat anchors. If you're gettin' those pumpkins hung up on the rocks, time to consider a different line on the obstacle or get a little Jeep/Toyota 4x4 that are nimble enough to get around boulders. . If you just want 'em for looks, any proficient welder can whip up what you need.

Since your a local give Horizon ford a call and ask about the skid plates for transfer case and gas tank. If you decide to order just get the part numbers and order through the website. AFAIK the trucks with the off road package came with them. For the diff cover you may need to replace it with a built in plate. They aren't cheap though.

Thanks for the input guys, Im mainly looking for an engine cover to keep sticks and excessive dust/general crap out of the engine bay. The diff covers are for funzies pretty much but also to help with traversing river rock every so often.
