QDII rear diff cover

So last weekend I hit my rear diff on a rock and now it's leaking pretty good. It looks like it's just the lower lip that is peeled back a little. Searching the internet, it seems a little difficult to pin point options for my 2007 WK. Anyone replaced theirs? Figure if I'm in the market I might as well get something nice. Thoughts on if a new heavier duty cover maybe without a lip is enough or should I look at a guard as well?

And this is the 12 bolt cover. Any help with how to more specifically search for this replacement would be appreciated.

UCF (Under Cover Fabworks) makes one. You can purchase from Crawl or from them.

Thanks for the quick reply. I did finally find this one on Crawl Offroad. Definitely looks stronger. Is there still a lip on the lower side? So far, this is the only one I've found that I can confirm fits.

it is much stronger that the thin stock cover. No lip but it is a direct fit and made specifically for the QDII 12 bolt.

This is what i got. Clean fit, looks a lot sharper than the UCF in my opinion. It's 1/4 inch plate, same as the UCF, except it is also zinc-plated so it lasts longer. The UCF comes bare steel you have to paint and finish it yourself.

Unless I miss-read the OP is looking for a replacement cover the link you provided is for a differential cover guard.

ooohh yeah i might've read through that really fast. sorry. I guess the UCF is pretty much the best as far as replacements go. They look super sturdy.

Why is the 4XG guard so much more than a completely new and thicker cover???

I am going to pick one of these up today probably. Does anyone know how much more fluid it will hold over the stock cover? Would you advise to fill it with the stock amount of fluid or to the fill level? Thanks
