    Got a problem with my 14 bolt...seems it digs trenches where it goes and hits lots of rocks. Yes I know, get bigger tires or a rock ring. What I am looking for is a skid plate for the diff so it might slide over some of these things and not build a trench!!! Has anyone found someone who makes a 14 bolt slider?

    Thanks

    Get a cover from a vender here, and shave the lip off.

    Yep shave it you can get about 1-1.5" by doing that, more if you wanna cut the bottom of the diff and reweld. Also you can get the "guardsman" from DIY4x on here to help the ujoint slide over stuff also.
