Wink skid plate/undertray options

Good morning m|u. I'm looking at skid plate options for my '12 MCD m/t. So far I've found the GP undertray, the CooperCrap skid plate, the Rennline Aluminum skid plate, and finally the Forge Alloy Undertray sump guard.

I'm lowered on Megan Racing coil overs and I've been scraping my oil pan and exhaust. I don't do it a lot. Luckily, I live in Florida so the roads are terrible. I just changed my oil and I noticed my pan is looking more pathetic and now my oil pan plug got scraped up pretty good. Nothing is cracked or leaking, fortunantly.

Ouch!

The GP one is plastic and is more for aerodynamics. While that's great, I really need more protection.

The CooperCrap skid plate is available in steel or aluminum, but it's the most expensive. $130 just for shipping, which brings it to around $330 total.

The next one is the Rennline. The Rennline is the only one I've seen actually used.

The final option is the Forge undertray. It seems just as pricey as the CooperCrap skid plate. I haven't added s/h yet.

Does anyone have any personal experience with these? Or know of any other options?
