Diff covers or skid plates?

I'll be going to Moab next month and I can only do one of these mods for now. I won't be doing any of the difficult trails so I'm wondering which would be best choice, diff covers or skid plates? I have a JKUR 3.5" lift with 35" MT tires and a front skid plate. Thank you

big fat aftermarket diff covers like to hit track bars and create other interferences in front....stick with a bolt on skid or Barnett diff cover to avoid the potential for issues.

When i went to Moab my diff covers didn't get touched and im only on 32's. Just the bottom of the diff got scraped. I would get skid plates and if you dont already have it some heavy duty bumpers, mine got well used in Moab.
