    What diff covers are you guys running on your rigs. I would like to see some pictures of the covers you guys have also. Also does anyone know of anyone who plates the covers like 4x4iron used to. I would like to not spend a lot of money on my cover but have a strong cover. Here is a picture of the ORD rig with a cover like what I want.

    How much would one of those run me? I have never seen a price for one.

    I really doubt it. Stock pans are relatively thin/flimsy junk. Not much point in trying to upgrade one. There is diff protection that bolts on over the existing pan, and its fine... but personally I think its a lot easier dealing with just a HD cover. I used to have the kind that uses a ring + some round-stock bent/welded to the ring for protection. It was fine, but when changing diff oil and such it was kinda a pita.

    usually the ones that use the stock cover are home made. If you donw have a torch/welder. Try this:

    Cut out the "armor" that you want to add to the stock cover, out of cardboard, and then lay it against the cover until it fits right etc. then take it to a shop or friend and see if they can weld it up for you, out of some scrap plate they have laying around. maybe a highschool welding/shop calss would do it for cheap.

    Anyway, just a thought

    Get a Razorback cover from Kert at DIY4X. Very reasonable and very nice.

    too lazy + too poor = nothing good will ever happen to your rig...

    I run GLO covers front and rear. They are great gear.
