RE Tri Link and Aftermarket Diff Covers

I've search just about every jeep forum google will take me to and have not been able to find an aftermarket diff cover that will work with the truss that is included with the RE tri link. I've found articles on other users that have performed light grinding on some of these diff covers to fit the truss. Some have even grinded on the truss itself. So my question is: if no aftermarket diff covers such as SOLID, ARB, DYNATRAC, PSC, to name a few, won't fit without doing some of these mods, how does one do the grinding? I'm by no means a fabricator or even close to knowing how to weld; however, if there are any other options other tri link users have found to yield the introduction of aftermarket diff covers please respond. Also, from what some posters have mentioned regarding this "minor grinding" they explain it as if it is really easy to do. Can someone please demonstrate or place a link in which pics or videos are shown of someone grinding away at a diff cover or the truss itself in order to line up both items to bolt up and fit properly? I am currently running G2 Dana 44 axles on both front and rear. Thank you.

Just test fit and grind a little at a time where stuff hits. A little at a time until it all fits together.
