Front bumper valance and or radiator plate

I am not sure if this is right place to post, but please tell me where it should be.
I have a 1998 Ranger XLT 4x4 extended cab with suicide doors.
It has about a 3 inch lift.
I bought the truck from a guy who broke the bottom valance on the front bumper.
I am looking to get a new valance for it and also see if I can find a plate that will protect the radiator.
I am not sure what the name even is.
I want to say it is sort of like a breastplate. Something to cover the lower section of the radiator as it is exposed.
Maybe the bottom valance will cover enough, but I would like to know what part to look for and if I can find one that will bolt on.

Thank you

Yes, called lower valance, example here: 98 00 Ford Ranger Styleside Front Bumper Lower Valance Charcoal Gray Texture New | eBay

This is for a styleside, can come with or without fog light holes

Other part is called a Skid Plate, front skid plate for your application.
