I have a 99 Dakota club cab SLT with the 5.2
Rookie question- what options for skid plates do I have? I've dug through 3 junk yards, one with over 20 Dakotas/Durangos, and haven't found anything. I started fabricating one with some diamond plate stock my friend has lying around, but I don't think there's a way of doing it without using a sheet metal brake. And I would have to figure out how to get around the front diff. The best idea I've been given so far is to make a 2 piece one, from front crossmember to trans crossmember, then trans crossmember to Tcase crossmember. Has anyone done DIY skid plates and had them turn out good? Where could I source some stock skid plates? What trims/models even came with skid plates?

The only reason I ask is because I'm frequently running over brush in northern WI and MI . Lost the charcoal box and a wiring harness so far.
