Skid Plate Question

I have a 99 ranger 2wd and i am thinking about lifting it. The only problem is that there is some stuff that i would like to cover up, so I am wondering that if i can find a skid plate for a 99 ranger 4wd if it would just bolt up with minor mods and if so what would i have to do (besides drilling holes) or if it would just be easier to fab one

You might be able to find a skid plate on ebay or on a forum, just search through the classifieds. I bought a stock LII skid plate off of a member here and it took 6 bolts to mount it and took maybe 5 minutes to put on.

It would not bolt up to a 99 2wd. I'm not sure how much modding it would take to make it work though.


Either way good luck finding one.

I know it won't bolt up. When I was searching ebay and the net for skid plates I found quite a few for the 99 models, so I know they are out there, just keep looking.
