Were you running into clearance issues with your riddler?

No, I was running into manufacturing defects. Casting required a lot of grinding before I could even bolt it up, threads were cut too deep for the fill plug. In general a pos. I was planning to replace it or do some more work on it and so put the stock one back on. Whole thing backfired in my face.

Don't know what to say, Justin, maybe mine was just a fluke. I bought mine through Rokmen also but it was way last summer and I didn't catch the problems till this fall when I was getting ready to install it. Why don't you talk to them about it? Other than what I mentioned it's a good cover, it was a bad casting that should never have gone out. I can't believe they are all like that.

Intresting, I just spent $1700 @ Rokmen today, including two Riddler covers. I will do a close inspection on the covers before installation. The reviews were five stars for these covers?

Yeah, Rokmen wouldn't carry them if they were all junk. Like I say, mine was probably a fluke, if I had caught the problems earlier I would have sent it back. And you DON'T want stock covers on your rig Justin. This little lapse of judgement is going to cost me close to a grand. Tow charges, new gears, and a master overhaul kit. Oh, yeah, and I have to pull my rear axle, again, and take it back to the guy to set it up, again

Like I said.
I love mine. They went right on no problem. No issues with rubbing. And they have proven very tough.
Keeping in mind that I run an 8.8 and 30.
