Skid Plate

Just was wondering if someone is able to make me/get made for me a skid plate like the one N3elz (Griggs) has. I want exactly that. I'm looking to take off my front valance and run the skid plate.

I'm looking for a nice think peice of stainless or whatever you reccomend. I will most likely coat it with truck bedliner stuff so it will be black. I really don't want it to be silver color.

I'll pay all the shipping/handling etc. I just want this done if anyone wants to make a quick buck. It should be pretty easy to make I just don't have the tools/know how

I have a front skid plate that has a sub-frame of 1" square steel tubing and 3/16" aluminum diamond plate. You could drive your truck over this and it wouldn't bend.





I also have front tow-hooks for sale. Someone supposibly is interested and said they will ship the money, but I have yet to receive it. So give it a week or so and I'll see if I still have them.

Another option for the rear tow point, if you have a rear reciever take a hitch thing that has the ball on it (I cannot think of the name of it right now) and remove the ball and use a D-ring with 2 spacers on it.

I have a set of tow hooks from a 2002 ranger xlt 4x4.. Good condition.
Make me an offer. Shipping should be about 8$. Include 8$ for shipping in your offer(fed-ex).

They were removed for the winch. I think I have the metric grade 10.9 bolts too. Just have to go dig em out of my junk box.
