Differential Protection?

I was wondering what others have done for the rear differential protection? I recently bent my cover causing a slight leak. Hoping to do something to prevent this from happing again.

Thanks

4XGuard makes a rear end skid. Only one I know of, but there may be others lurking out there somewhere.

Learn to take a different line and not hit your differential.

I know that sometimes that is very difficult and that mistakes are made but, you'd be surprised at the number of new offroaders that believe it is a battering ram.

The 4xGuard skid is for the rear bumper, not the differential. Superlift makes one for the WK's, check out their website: www.superlift.com
