anybody with aftermarket differential cover

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

What's chrome? I have the riddler covers from rokmen. They aren't chrome. But the bolts are shiney.

Solid makes a great diff cover. they can be pricey, but they are completely worth it.



i guess if you want chrome, you can always paint it.

Most covers that are worth buying, probably aren't going to be chrome. Plus if you bang it off a rock it will just crack or chip the chrome. Better of buying one like recommended above.

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.

I really have been wanting to get Solid front and back. Where did you get yours? I have been shopping around but I dont know what stores have good reputations for service and the like.

solid diff cover

I just got my solid diff covers ordered, I called solid direct and got the best price ever, $65 for the rear and same for the front. I dont think anyone can beat that?? Time to order up.

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.)
