You will need to access it someday, I have a couple panels on mine and I have appreciated them being there when needed.

Started out with some 1/8 plate to cover Dana 300 and drive shaft. I know some may think 1/8 but i was thinking it would be good protection if i ever have front drivshaft failure.
