    Get some cardboard and make your patterns then take them to an aluminum welder.
    Just helped a guy with a Frontier who wanted to put some tin ones on to protect his oil pan and diff.I showed him that tin really didn't protect much.

    Those are referred to as skid plates. Looks like your year of truck might be a bit difficult to locate off-the-shelf aftermarket skid plates, but check with 4x4 and off-road clubs and websites to see what is available.

    Speedometer cable?

    Depending on the year and the options many had skid plates from the factory. I would have a look at a friend or neighbor's truck or in a salvage yard.
