Can they swap? Yes. If you have the plastic front bumper you will either need to replace your intercooler mounts or shave off the hooks. The first skid is the Front skid, followed by the Engine skid.

The very front one can also be referred to as front bash plate when speaking in OEM descriptions.

Yes. If I remember correctly, you will actually have leftover bolts.

Will the front bash plate cover the transmission pan?

For the OP, the 2 door BB has a plastic front skid plate and a plastic engine skid. Where those two mount/connect are a high area for impacts (speaking from experience). Surprisingly I didn't notice I dented my plastic front plate until I was removing it to install metal one. It was dented between the lower mounting bolts. Was surprised the plastic dented and stayed that way.

hi
My BRONCO BADLAND with electronic sway bar diconnect is causing a problem with the SKID PLATE manufacturers. For 2 months I have been communicating with TALON GARAGE TEXAS.

I'm waiting for their response: they are currently developing their skid plate for fitment with ELECTRONIC SWAYBAR DISCONNECT.. I am still waiting for news from TALON GARAGE. But it's long.

UPDATE FROM TALON GARAGE

We will ship to Canada after 20 units have been sold and successfully installed. This will ensure any possible bugs are worked out prior to shipping international. Shipping to Canada is not cheap and we wish to avoid a return situation.

That being said, installations have been going really well with sufficient clearance of the electronic disconnecting sway bar. We have about 12 units sold for the Badlands with the sway bar disconnect so far, so it may be a while longer before we ship international.

TRACKTOY HI ADAM F
But, if this does not work I will write to JAMES IAG, He sold me approximately $3,500.00 worth of parts to MY FULL SATISFACTION

well I got it mounted ,did not have to shave off the hooks or replace inter-cooler mounts.
what I did have to do is cut some slots on the bash plate . did that with a dremmel tool and metal cutting blade , took all of 20 minutes . now I have the bash plate mounted and waiting for the engine cover mount from IAG performance .
