Skid plate recommendations

Hi everyone. I am currently setting up a '95 D90ST for a friend and am looking for suggestions for a front skid plate that will work in conjunction with an ARB bumper.
If you have one and like it or hate it, please tell me why.
Any advice appreciated.
Also looking for a supplier of weld-on diff guards.

Thanks,

I have one but it came with my 90 so I don't know who makes it, it looks like this one from Atlantic British. It works I have never had a problem with it or any thing getting past it.

Oh, and you did see this thread about Diff guards in the misc section?

The SouthDown steering guard from RN (or southdown) is a great unit, and fits perfectly with the ARB front end. The AB steering guard mentioned above is not as friendly. It's a one piece welded up unit (a plus to me) but that makes it impossible to adjust to fit. In fact, I bought one from AB and sent it back because I could not make the holes line up to the steering drop arm, etc.

The southdown is more $ but a much nicer fit and finish, imo.

Mike, thanks for the link.

And Ron, that is exactly the kind of advice I'm looking for, I greatly appreciate it.
Do you by chance, have a photo of your setup: ARB/SD?

Regards,
