You can use any skid plate made for rangers with a body lift. The mounting points are in front, on the frame just behind the bunper and in the back, on the front crossmember. almost all of the skid plates in production aren't worth $.02 off road cuz they are so wimpy. the stock Ford one is only i think 1/16 " aluminum and can be bent with ur bare hands. personally i build my own with 1/8" diamond plate and 1/8 x 2" angle iron reinforcing it.
