Default ford dana 60 front diff cover

I need a diff cover for a ford hi pinion dana 60. looking for something better than stock.

What is the the best bang for the buck diff cover?
ive heard riddler is good, and the price it pretty good too.

I thought about reinforcing the stock cover?

any thoughts?

I am running a Solid cover ($65 on the site, Creative Fab here on GL is a vendor I do beleive). I have beat the HELL out of it and it takes it.

I think most aftermarket are all stout as hell. Just pending price and if you need to weld to it makes the difference.
