Better yet, OEM plate:

The Original Equipment belly pans that US spec vehicles received were not exactly what you'd want to use as a skid plate. Made of plastic or lightweight aluminum, it's limited coverage did little for protecting your oil pan and transmission. Now available from ECS is a European Steel Skid Plate kit with all the parts you need to install it. Not only does this kit provide more than twice the coverage of the original unit as well as the protection of steel, but it is also vented to allow for proper cooling of your engine and transmission.

Included in the ECS steel skid plate kit are:

* European steel skid plate
* Steel skid plate brackets
* All mounting hardware
* Detailed instructions

Edit: other non-OEM plates are slightly less expensive (about 1/3 less the price), but decrease clearance by almost an inch. Which if you plan on lowering like I do, you don't want to loose that clearance.
