2WD Coil Sprung Skid Plates

What are you 2WDersd running for skid plates?

Torsion bar skids won't fit on coil sprung suspensions and I need some sort of protection under there.

Things I've noticed that are VERY vulnerable are the power steering cooler w/ the lines, A/C cell, and the radiator behind it. I would like to run a skid from the lower control arm mounting beam to the bottom of the valence and have it attach to the steering rack plate along the way. Maybe two different plates?

I also need to know if any skid plates for the smallest 17 gallon gas tank were ever made, maybe on a regular cab 6 foot bed 4x4? I found an Expo at Pull-A-Part that has a fuel tank skid plate but it is for the 20 gallon tank so maybe I could modify it?

I would appreciate some pics of 2WD skids. Preferably close to stock. If it has a long travel suspension or 6 inches of lift that wouldn't give me a good picture.

You can get the reg cab short bed skid from Ford for about $100 bucks. You'll have to go custom on the front skid.
