Front Skid Plate?

I found this skid plate on ebay and want to know what you guys thought of it.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Ford-Ranger-...ht_1299wt_1396 It looks like a good quality plate to me.

A little high in price based on new pricing from RCi… your call.
Maybe the guy will accept $100.

I hadn't see that thread before so i'll end up buying it through this site, Well I don't have a skid plate on the truck now the only one i have is the t-case one i bought from the Ford Dealership a year ago. So i've been looking for a front one for a while because to buy one from Ford was way to expensive. Does anyone know where to get a gas tank skid plate from?

Tried your local junkyard? Not sure what the price is on a new one from Ford but I would imagine it's pricey.
