Had to change my signature. My 2011 JKU has been turned into a Ford F 250 Powerstroke Diesel.

I had a minor incident on the trail to Iron Gap Rd a few weeks ago. I'm thinking I'll replace it with a BTF cover. I just need to do a little more research to make sure I won't have clearance issues.

IIRC BTF has the best clearance diff cover wise.

When it comes to TJ's atleast.

That's what I've read too. I was looking at a Solid cover because its cheap but I've seen several posts saying there are clearance problems with the front axle.

And since this jeep seems to have a knack for finding trail damage, I thought it would be better to have welded steel that would dent instead of cast iron that might crack.

You don't try hard enough stuff to phase the Solid covers. Ive seen them handle some stupid hard hits on my neighbors Jeeps. I wish I had gotten a set of them, but I ended up with some weld together ones awhile ago.

Im in once my new electric fan and controller come in. Its hot out on the trails right now, thats why Hale has closed up for two months. Ill be done with classes after July 26th so something after that would be ideal.

Its not that hot out...Mine ran fine last summer during the 100* days. Although I do have a freak of a cherokee that has a normal oil pressure, doesn't run hot, or leak any fluid.

From what I've read on some JK threads, people are having to buy aftermarket track bars and grind on the Solid diff covers because the cover hits the factory track bar when the driver side tire is stuffed. So I thought it would be better to spend an extra $50 on a shallower cover instead of $150 on a track bar.

Solid makes some of the biggest covers out there. Terrible clearance issues on TJ's unless bumpstopped like crazy and apparently it's a problem with JK's too.

Didn't know about that. JKs are a foreign language to me, hahaha.
