Looks like it came preinstalled on the cover from Ford. Luckily Holly makes these.

Wow, looks decent, maybe worth the extra cost to not have to monkey with tape being in the right spot, staying in the right spot, or staying on at all...

I got one of these, and although it's nice, be advised that it doesn't quite fit with the stock XR V-Belt pulley system-- fits just fine with the serpentine setup, as shown, but to make it work for me, I had to not use the inner bolt, and slightly raise the piece by rotating it and securing it with the outer bolt to clear the stock pulley. Not a big deal, but it should be pointed out.
