just curious which covers are the best, i would like chrome, but i dont think im going to find a nice solid chrome cover, if possible would love to see pics. mine on my 2003 are rusty and if i have to remove the cover to change the fluid, I'll go ahead and replace the cover as well. thanks in advance

i hate to say this but you have solid axle covers but it looks like your jeep only sees the malls and doesnt crawl much or wheel at all.. soo clean underneath..

I'm running a BTF on the front d 44 and a ARB on the rear 60. There's a saying in the rockcrawling world that goes "Chrome won't get you home". And like what was stated earlier by KBR97. If you bang them on a rock, they are going to chip and look like hell. Chrome is for show trucks.

Now should i go back with a gasket or would permatex be better?
The Lube locker gaskets are excellent based on reviews I've read on here. but Permatex has worked for years....so either way will work. Just depends if you want to have to scrape off the permatex everytime you tear into your diffs. (I went the Permatex route since it came with my Diff covers.)
