Which skid plate? There were 3 that were stock on '93-'97 Rangers (transfer case, front tank, and rear tank).

If you are looking for a skid plate for the TTB, good luck with that, even a custom one wont work because of the travel design of a TTB.

Um NO.

Your vailance NEVER protected your radiator anyways. You will have to custom make something that mounts to the frame.

idk, since it broke, my radiator just looks too exposed, it hangs down about 4 inches past my bumper. atleast the valance kept rocks from flying into it on the freeway.

any idea how to make something to protect it?

If you notice, it still doesn't go down to the axle. It more than likely mounts to the front crossmember and then to the bumper. That is something custom, they do not sell them.

This is the picture you are seeing:

That wont work on any Ranger that is a TTB or TIB ('83-'97). FX2.3's truck is a newer style with the SLA or A-Arm front suspension (2wd and 4wd).
