If I'm correct, that looks like a skid for a rig with IFS. if you wanted one to go for the front I would look into custom work from a fab shop.

It's not just for IFS. I've seen that type of front slider thingy on a few different rigs.

land rover discoveries and Defender 90's have always had aftermarket skids for the front of their solid axle rigs..... http://www.eastcoastrover.com/133.html scroll half way down i am sure this is what he means. It seems like a good idea....protecting the bottom of radiator, fan shroud, and front of the engine.......Almost perfect for us backwoods wheelers where theres a lot of branches and sticks......

I've never seen one. I have an 05 and have the following on it: oil pan, radiator, steering box, lower control arms, D30 cover. . .

There is also a lower radiator skid. I've also seen skids for the tie rod as well.
