    I swear I saw a factory guard for an 05+ front diff. Has anybody seen such a item? Maybe for a non-U.S. truck?

    Are you referring to the skid plate? Although it's not specifically a diff plate, it certainly protects it a little bit. If memory serves, I think the diff's mounted on top of a cross member too.

    No, What I saw protected the diff. It was mounted right under it.
