Inexpensive skid plate replacement

The skid plates under my 192K 4th gen have seen some better days. Does anyone manufacture inexpensive skid plates for replacement? I don't need something for rock crawling, or even off-roading, just want to maintain some level of protection under there at an affordable cost.
Thanks!

I bought them, they all fit pretty decently actually, until you get to the last skid. From my understanding, the clearance issues I outlined here are only for the V8 due to headers/exhaust.

Based on pricing, I would definitely buy these again. I don't plan to see any boulder fields here in Ohio, but they should be plenty strong to hold up to rutted out trails, wood, and the occasional rock or two.

good to know. i think i sometimes make comments subliminally trying to create more conversation to convince me i need something. if i wasnt eyeing down a snorkel and winch setup, or if i actually hit my stock skids more (mine are actually in damn good shape for an 04) id prob buy them. the LFD offroad skid is another top contender for just the front could be a good way to go, OP

What do you mean by 'seen some better days'? Rusted out? Or will sanding/sandblasting and paint fix it?

It's got some holes in it, in addition to losing the jacking support some time ago.

Might as well go aftermarket. If you're in the SWPA area, you can have my old ones...

ARB are good enough for a daily. Otherwise, LFD, RCI, Budd Built, CBI all make good replacements.
