If you have a 12 bolt rear diff (QDII) I think 4xG is your only option for a guard - but don't quote me on that.
If you have a 10 bolt rear diff (QTII) I'd definitely go with a Solid Axle Industries Chrysler 8.25 cover.
It's QD2 as it was one of the things I absolutely had to have when looking at wk's and watching vids of wheeling with it, it impressed me
I saw a picture of a dented rear diff cover and don't want that to happen far from home if it leaked or hit the ring gear

The belly skid shares the cross member bolts that the transfer case skid uses. They will butt up right next to each other just fine. It will bring everything down flush so you won't even know that the crossmember is there anymore. It should still up for sale on their website, maybe you were looking in the wrong spot. Here's a link to the sales page and better pics of it: http://4xguard.com/grand-cherokee-20...y-guard-5.html
Yes those do look strong
I guess its worth it since mine look like they could break at any time now.
And I couldn't justify spending 500 on control arms from jba since I could replace the ball joints several times with that money.
Weird I couldn't find the belly guard for some reason probably just skipped over it.
I was trying to follow the link from the gallery and it wouldn't work for me
So thanks for the link! I'm going to email them and ask about the wings I guess just to be sure.
I had a whole paragraph typed up asking about some other 4xg stuff but after
some reading it looks like i'm just going to get all of it as it's cheap insurance
I see some trail grapplers in my future as well had them on a silverado 2500 and they were awesome thinking 285/70/17s but I'll have to wait till I wear out these general's
My first move is going to be these ball joints as thats a safety issue if anything.
Then the belly guard and a muffler and all the little things I mentioned in the first post mostly appearance not a fan of all this chrome stuff since it's not actually real,
I will probably keep the chrome under the windows as it's actually stainless and not plastic.
After that I'll start splurging at 4xg for some protection
You guys have been really helpful
I'd say the mod bug has officially bitten me If i hadn't already been infected
