Price: $65.00 Pros: Seems to be sturdy and "solid" Cons: Some diff cover holes do not line up. Recommended? No
Comments: I have both a front solid diff cover for the D30 and rear for the 8.25 on my Cherokee. The solid cover for the Chrysler 8.25' s bolt holes did not line up. I had to bore out the holes with a drill so they would actually line up. The D30 had no problems, lined up fine. Just be aware that if you get the cover for the 8.25 you will need to mess with the cover to make it fit.
Pros: Heavy duty, relatively inexpensive. Cons: Finish on the sealing surface could be improved. Recommended? Yes
Comments: I've got the SOLID cover on my 8.8 and it works great. I've dragged it over numerous rocks with no damage or peeling up. The finish is nice, but they could have machined the mating surface of the cover a bit more cleanly. We cleaned up the surface a bit with a fine file prior to installing. Used a LubeLocker gasket and it has been leak free for over a year now.
Pros: good fit, heavy duty, reasonably priced, looks good Cons: none that I can see Recommended? Yes
Comments: I have drug these over rocks several times and set the jeep down on these a few times. The fins are about rubbed off on the bottom side, but I am very impressed with these. And they are reasonable priced compaired to others out there!
Comments: They're strong and do the job great; in fact I hit the front one on a rock really good and there was no damage. My only issue was the difficulty in getting at the bolts for installing and uninstalling.
