Has anyone found a skid plate kit just for the fuel filter housing as temporary protection until a lift and full skid plate can be added?

Take a look at this one from Asfir - https://www.asfir.com/skid-plate-541171.html
I have one and it is pretty good especially for casual off roading. Didnt hold up too well to multiple high centers however it did protect the fuel filter assembly. I am probably going to make one from steel of go with a full belly pan at some point. The oil pan skid has held up very well.

Here is how it looks now. It did have most of its shape when still bolted in. Took it off to change the fuel filter recently. These diesels are heavy and I think this one needs to be made of steel or double thick aluminum

at some point i think i can fab up a easy plate. just need some 1.5" tube that can bolt to the frame and some 1/4" steel plate that bolts to the tube and the trans skid plate that is adjacent to the fuel filter.
