Custom skid plate help

Saw someone post bjv11's truck and i looked up his cardomain and i want a skid plate like his, except instead of doing tow hook holes it will have a receiver hitch hole, and its going on a 4x2 coil spring truck with a bodylift, was wondering how to go about mounting it and bending it to fit


oh, pics of his

Here's another skid plate idea:

From their description, it looks like a tubular frame with mounting tabs, and a steel plate bolted/screwed to the tubular frame. The tube frame should give it some substantial strength.

They say it fits '98 - '00 Rangers, but I would think that it would fit newer trucks. Their price is pretty steep, but I'm sure you could fabricate one for less, and incorporate a clearance hole for a 2" receiver.
