PSC Bombshell. They are on my short list. Can't put a price on protecting such a vital piece of equipment in my opinion.

Based on that Arb should be at the top of the list with Rancho running a close second.

These are super strong, 3/8" steel plate, not cast iron, with the flange surfaced for leak-free fit. They clear everything on the Rubicon, unlike the spyders.

Dana 44 3/8" Differential Cover - RuffStuff Specialties

and ruffstuff gives 10% off for forum members.

Mine is a sport not a rubicon - so would I get the 30 or 44? I just put a 2.5" teraflex lift on it

I switched from the PSC to Riddler covers. I like the Riddler's better. They seem to deflect rocks and such better.
