Do the gas tank skids fit 2wd? I'd assume regular cab and extended wouldn't interchange, right?

Stock Front, Transfer, and Gas Tank Skids on the Level 2 FX4, optional on the other 4x4 (at least 06+).

I really think it is whatever they have laying around. There is no set skid plate setup. Except maybe fx4 lv2 might have all three

mine didn't come with any

some come with a "skid plate" if you can call that worthless pile of sheet metal a skid plate.. the t-case and gas tank skid are half way decent, but the front ones are a false sense of security.

some rangers come with an "off road package" mine did. it sits higher than the typical 4wd models, and come with skid plates. i say they are better than nothing tho... i bought the front skid plate for my truck from super lift.... they make a really nice one, it looks cool, and is really strong!, i honestly jack my truck up with it... the downfall is price.

Does anyone have part numbers for the different skid plates? I'm attempting to locate a front skid if at all possible.

I wouldn't waste your money. They are super thin. Spend $30 on some plate, and quickly bend one up. The stock one won't stop a pebble bouncing down the highway.

I would prefer the stock carbon steel. I don't need something crazy strong. Mainly something to keep the crap out.

I found the part number I was looking for anyways. 1L5Z-5B018-AA. Carbon steel front skid. $210 from 1stfordparts. I think not.
