The type of skidplate you are talking about are only found on IFS trucks. The only options you have to protect the differential is an axle truss, or some sort of differential guard. Here are some examples:

I bought some cheap ones but they have held up nice and still look new, except for the dent I put in the front one when I drove through 4 foot deep water here in richmond and bashed it on a rock. They were only about 35 or 40 bucks each. they were B&? I dont remember the hole name. Anyone else know, the box was black with purple/yellow writing.

I am curious on how you are going to mount the front skid plate you are designing. W/ IFS the A-arm pivot points do not move in relation w/ the front of the frame so you can easily mount to those two points. W/ a solid front axle, the axle move independently of the frame so there is know way to mount at the axe and the frame. If you figure this out i would be interested in you product.
Unless, you are designing it for the New ram 1500 which has IFS.
