Mine are from JCRoffroad.com They tie both frame rails together, as well as bolting to the T/C brace. Here is a look.

I have a DPG tcase skid, which is almost identical to the JCR. This type of skid is pretty hard to install though. The frame is not easy to drill through. You need 6" long bits, which I was only able to find in regular black oxide steel--- it took three 1/4" and two 3/8" bits in all.

Up front I have an OEM skid. Rusty makes a similar one

If you are looking at budget options, go with www.jcroffroad.com or www.dpgoffroad.com Either one of those is great. If you don't mind spending a little more for better protection and higher clearance, go with www.tntcustoms.com belly pan.

The WARN t-case skid is extremely beefy and is only $99
