Well, that sums it up, thanks scorpio! :sonicjay:yes they are very important. you're going to spend at least $300-500 for the gears and install, plus another $700+ for an ARB, and you're gonna try and skimp on another $30-150 to protect a $1,000-1,500 investment. come on really.
and honestly i think a diff guard or heavy duty cover is more important in the mud, because you can't see what's under the mud. ever seen anybody go through a mudhole and stop dead in their tracks??? not cool. but either way. with that much money invested in a diff, don't be cheap and get some good protection
so why don't you use them? and "pretty strong" doesn't cut it if you're shelling out cash for a solid diff coverI laugh every time I see someone laugh at ClearGearz covers. They are cheaper than a lot of the aftermarket (only $19 more than GLO's), pretty strong, and you'll always know exactly when you need to drain the fuckers. Think about how many pictures we've seen of milkshake differentials on this board that were a surprise to the owner.
