99 stock front skid plate? (NEW ??) info needed!

I would like to know if and what stock front skid plates will fit my 99 4x4. Also I just installed a body lift, will that effect the stock plate? Where do I get one?

Any factory plate from 98-up should work on your 99.

Prices from a few months ago, should be close:

98~2000 front skid plate (stainless):
YL5Z-5B018-AA
224.15 list, $168.11 online

Level II front skid plate (black):
1L5Z-5B018-AA
$213.03 list, $159.77 online

The factory plates are OK for casual offroading but not rocks or heavy bashing.

Here's a Ranger skid plate from a fab shop. It is reinforced with 2" x 0.120" wall tubing.

Does anyone know if explorers came with a skid plate? Are any of them compatable with the 98 or newer rangers?

I've never seen an Explorer with a factory front plate.
