Seems like traditional differential covers have some serious design flaws that make them very vulnerable especially when you consider it normally has the least amount of ground clearance than any other part of the vehicle.

|JFjeld||I've got a stock D30 cover you can have for free; just come and get it. Came off a 2001 XJ I believe. This was from a donor axle I bought for the shafts. Not heavy duty, but free.|

|GoldenSahara00||Riddler and the PSC covers come from the exact same forging/mold. So I guess all 3 of us agree|

Is there a company you recommend?

Even after you straighten the cover you will most likely still need to replace it. It may not seal properly after being dented and then repaired. Heavy duty diff covers are relatively cheap and made by dozens of companies.
Differentials are low to the ground, Colorado is full of rocks, and ring and pinions are pricey to replace. Swapping out covers to heavy duty ones is something I highly recommend for anyone who wheels.

|dwigs||I would fix/replace it before wheeling, IMHO. Bending the metal back-and-forth only weakens the material - like a paper clip, for example. It would just be tender and a bull's eye for something worse to happen. Just too risky...|

|JeepandMud||Am I ok with still wheeling? Or would it be better to fix it (replace it)?|

If you're asking how to "undent" the diff cover, well I would take it off and try to get the dent out with a hammer; however, I would be cautious doing so. I would probably only do this if stuck on a trail and not a daily driver.
