Lower engine cover replacement

I'm needing to know if I should go the cheaper route or should I buy one from Ford. I found one on rock auto but didn't know if it would offer the Ford quality. Here is the one from rock auto More Information for VARIOUS MFR FO1228121. It's about a 100 dollars cheaper then Ford's price. My lower engine cover got messed up on a trip. A wreak made everyone detour down a gravel road that had huge pot holes and I ended up dragging part of the shield off on one side. I used duct tape and zip ties to put it back together. So what is everyone's opinion go the cheaper route from rock auto or buy one from Ford. Thanks.

Give it a try I'd say, not a critical piece and you might even end up with an identical one.

Had a similar situation with mine (ugh!!). My people at Quick Lane did a fast repair when part of mine became detached. To get a brand new replacement would run about $100 bucks.
