Diff coverage question

I plan on getting a Riddler diff cover for the front(from Rokmen) and was just curious if I should get a rear one also.

I don't do rocks, just some muddy trails.

I can understand the front hitting a few objects and needing coverage, but to get one in the back baffles me.

I have Riddlers both front and rear. The front one in case I run into something going forward, and the rear in case I hit something going backward. Also my Dana 44 rear cover had a small bit of overhang beyond the "pumpkin" itself that I was afraid might catch on something. Helpful hint: The covers didn't come with enough RVT to do both front and rear, so before you even start go to your auto parts store and get another tube.

I thought the same thing but went ahead and put a Riddler on my rear diff and am happy I did . . . I fell off a rock and nailed it pretty good . . . would have dented the stocker for sure, but just scratched the paint on my Riddler . . . it's surprising the see just how many times I've hit it. Forget the RTV . . . go with a lube locker . . . so much easier!
