Stock Heat Shields and Skid Plates

We have a 2017 Ford Transit 350 Low roof van, 15 passenger. What heat shields should
be on it and should it have a stock skid plate?

speaking of heat shields. all the exhaust heat sheilds on my 2015 have cracked, are lose and they rattle. I've tried using a super agresive tape to make them stay together but no success. Unfortunately, I guess it's time to replace them. It doesn't look like a difficult job (other than working under the van). Anyone tried replacing the heat shields?

Use stainless steel hose clamps or this tool. https://clamptitetools.com/

I use the Clamptite and stainless steel wire to tightly hold heat shields on.

+1 on the stainless wire.
Has held the heat shield in place on my car for about 6 years now.
I did not use any special tools, just twisted and cut the wire with a linesman's pliers.
