gentlemen, I need a replacement recommend for replacing a factory plastic plate that came off my truck at the lease Sunday going through a mud hole. Don't really want to spend 1K unless I have to or it comes with a brush guard or something...Thanks.

You talking about the big cover on the bottom that covers the oil filter pan etc. on the newer models?

I think a lot of people have left them off with no ill effects. I know I see a few trucks every week that have it hanging off dragging the ground... just don't know how people don't hear that.

You talking about a metal skid plate under the engine? Or the plastic wind deflector that hangs below the bumper?

If you're talking about that flimsy plastic piece that is held on by 1/4 turn flaps then just leave it off.
