Sure they have. People like to use 2wd trucks for desert Racers because the lighter front end helps in jumping the truck.

I'm shure you didn't have to post a thread asking this. Just try looking around a little.

Hey..I got to Somewhere from nowhere, Man!!! lol

Custom build the skid plate yourself or go to a fab shop and have one made. Take a 4wd skid plate and have it made to fit the 2wd...no big deal!!!!

The 4x4 and 2wd frame setup is not terribly different on the 98+. Not the parts you are worried about.

You should be able to find a 4x4 one (that will probably be the hard part), find the holes for the bolts, and maybe have to drill out the plate a bit to get all the holes lined up.

Also, I have seen plenty of pre-runner style 98+ Rangers that had skid plates up front. A lot of Pre-runners are 2wd, so you might just need to find one of those.
