I just made my own. I had tab plasma cut me a diff ring from 3/8 (nice job by the way), then pieced it together with 3/16" flat stock. I welded in sections to make sure I didn't warp it, and then i did a shitty job sealing it when I installed it


oh well, its beefy as hell, and holds about .3-.4 quarts more of lube

yes sir, it's only a $7 option or so... well worth it.

$130 ish to my door with the diamond plate option and drain plug option. I think it is $110 to your door without either option

HAHA...I thought it was GLO like as in the color. I thought you built it.

I have often thought about getting or bulding better diff covers but I have yet to dent one on the YJ. I did put a small ding in one on a XJ lots and lots of years ago though. I dunno if it's worth it for me yet.

Have you're kids make you one. You got the cutter and stuff to have the shapes cut out. Draw up the ring, cut it out, weld it up. It'd be inexpensive that way. Another benefit to aftermarket covers is that they almost always have extra space for oil, keeping you junk cooler and increasing lifespan. It's not just about the dents.

haha, nope, Great Lakes Offroad cover. Great company to work with.

I can hardly build a cover for the same price as buying one...
