            Poor fit

            I thought this would be a quick plug and play mod that would save some money and effort but that wasn't the case. The bolt holes lined up okay, but the holes surrounding the bolt were cut too small and required to be cut more with a cutting wheel and grinder to be able to tighten the bolts. Then there isn't quite enough room if you ever needed to remove your rubber stopper, and good luck if you did because it'd be a real pain getting it back on with this in the way. I was disappointed with this product, but it is made out of strong, quality metal. It just sucks it couldn't have been constructed better.

            Pretty cool

            It was stupid simple to install. Only problem is its torx bolts. One of mine striped trying to torque it to factory spec... but other than that. It will protect my housing. Havnt really banged it yet but we’ll see if it works. Looks pretty cool too

            Diff cover

            I +bought this cover because my G2 Alum cover did not clear my gas tank skid plate. This cover fits fine. Very easy to install just remove the lower Diff cover bolts, line up this rock cover and bolt back up with the Alan key bolts. I hae already hit it on boulders on the John Bull trail here in Big Bear Ca. It held up just fine. Its a cheap yet strong choice for rock armor.

            very well built

            I had ordered the front diff cover that was well built so I ordered the rear one the next Week for dana 35 install time took 15 or 20 minutes. Both diff and now protected. Look forward to next trail ride and rock crawling outing.

            A Cheap Way To Protect Your Differential

            Bought one of these for my 2001 TJ, and It went on flawlessly, however, the first time I banged it on a rock, there was a dent in the armor. Something that if any worse, may have damaged my diff. Thus, 4 stars. Effective up to a point. Just don't be too rough.
