When I had my Bronco, I put a Dynatrac one on my front TTB. I protected the diff and used the lower bolts. I never had a problem with it and it took a few knocks that the front of the TTB arm would've taken. I had swapped a 10.25 Sterling into the rear. I slapped a Go Rhino skid plate that had plate that cupped the rear diff and mounted out on the axle tubes with bolts and clamps. Every time a whacked a rock or something good, the stupid thing would twist around the axle and end up pointing straight down. It didn't matter how tight I clamped it, it still spun when taking a good hit. Finally on one trip it ended up being pulled off and thrown in the back of the rig until I got home and found a better spot for it....

My Dad's '75 came with a front diff skid plate from the dealer. I wish I still knew where it was, but I think it got thrown in the scrap pile when we tore it apart 5 years ago. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif
