    Did you ever find a solution or get something fabricated? Pretty much the same thing happened to mine.

    Skid plate guy, he is about $420. I've taken my car thru over a foot of snow and the plater is perfect, it's easy to mount. Adf customs, $450, dont have one but others on the forums like them

    DMGfab makes some too. Available from raptorracing.ca. They will ship to the US for cheap too I believe.

    With the US to cad rate this is a good deal for us buyers too.

    ^ Those are all for the main skid plate, the one I need and some of these others is the piece in front of that and attaches to the front bumper. ADF says they are working on one but I haven't seen anything yet.

    That piece should NEVER EVER fall off.

    In all likely hood your car was re-assembled wrong after the head gasket was performed. Fight to get it covered. The number of dealers who have screwed this up is high.

    My car did it twice, though I didn't get to 125mph. It happened as soon as I hit highway speed. They fixed it wrong, and it broke AGAIN.

    DMGfab is supposedly working on one too. He posted pictures of it on his instagram.

    Raptorracing will try to distribute that too if he gets it in production. I asked them too since my front undertray was partially damaged after being reassembled wrong by the bodyshop (same scenario as suggested above).

    Last I heard adf was still waiting for somebody to leave them an rs to mock something up, I'd love to but live over 1000 miles away from their shop in Colorado. Dmg was working on something but now I get the vibe he has no intentions of making a run of them.

    Looks like this??? Mine broke between 30mph at 55mph, since I was speeding up, it dented the bottom of the intercooler, and broke both brake cooling directors. Ford specifies in the written assembly that it takes a 6mm, that expands to 8, when it requires a 8 that expands to 10mm. It is correct in the print out diagram
