Diff covers

gonna change oil in both diffs and was wondering if it was worth it to put one of those heavy duty diff covers on one or both front and rear. I don't have lockers but would eventually like to have one installed. I have a d35 in rear and thought it might add a little strength to it. I plan on doing the super 35 kit also but I just don't have the cash to do this all at once. Any advice would be great or a sequence of how I should proceed as the jeep is stock except for tires and bumpers.

I guess my goal is just to make it a dependable trail rig with good quality parts while at the same time trying not to waste money on stuff I don't need.

Thanks for any comments

The cover really doesn't add overall stranth to the D35 axle, but will protect your housing & gears better then the stamped factory one.

How often to you wheel & what type of wheeling will kindof help detemine the needs of a HD cover.

I rock crawl, trail ride and some mudding and lokoing at getting either the Rock Rings for the covers, or going with the Blue Torch Fab cover.

There was a thread started on this the other day int eh General Thread, heres the link.
