So which diff guard is tougher? Superlift or 4XG?

After trolling other threads I'm satisfied that the 4XG Belly Guard with my Mopar factory skids, 4XG Front Guard, Rear sliders and rock rails should fully protect.

Is the stock Mopar gas skid plastic??? Seemed so when I was under this past weekend. Is a 4XG rear skid necessary with the sliders? Not sure I like the look of it.

If you have a t-case skid and it is bolted to the fuel tank skid, then you have the MOPAR fuel tank skid and your good.

When did that happened? I just received the one I ordered today and was a little disappointed... Nothing against the 4xGuard design, but I prefer the old style Superlift version.

interesting. i shopped around for the Superlift just last night and never came accross an image like the one you just received. I agree i like the 'old' Superlift design. Looked like it gave a bit more bottom coverage and easier access to the plug. JBA must have licensed the design to Superlift...or Superlift simply figured it was cheaper to cut an 'S' on a bunch of 4xg blanks...and sell them a lot cheaper.

Well, since they appear to be the same exact functional product now, my vote is for the best price. I like the idea of matching, but since every where I look on my Jeep I see 4XG already prominently displayed I want to change it up a bit.

...Who knows maybe my future Superlift diff cover will someday match my future kick'n Superlift suspension!

On another note, I received yet another two packages today...Spidertrax. I may just frame them and hang them on the wall since they look so sweet.

Still need my OME struts and front springs. Also looking forward to receiving my Superchips. Just have to remember to mail the $25 rebate in...

Spidertrax 1.5". Once I get the OME HD on, I'll throw these on to better able test fitting new rubber.
Thanks again Kolak!

I'm sure I will the next time I have the wheels off. I want to paint up the calipers since they're rusted and look pretty bad. Figured I'd do it then. Hopefully this week...

Score one for Craigslist!Just picked this baby up for over 50% off retail. Brand new and still in the box! Hopefully, it'll be big enough to run my impact wrench continuously, paint, blow out the sprinklers, etc.

Received my Superchips 3875 today. Updated it tonight. Hooking it up tomorrow! I'll go with the 87 tune to begin with. Can always use some better gas mileage...

Sorry if that seems bitter, the flashpaq is my next upgrade most likely, but I've been looking for feedback from current/previous users about results, good bad or indifferent

Also, I found a tb spacer that actually gave substantial differences in mileage...
At some point I'm gonna run the dyno withand without just to see if there are any measureable differences, but did you see any actual gains with the airraid spacer other than sound?

There are tons of reviews on here for the superchips 3875. All that I have seen have been very positive.
