Aluminum Ribbed Diff covers

I found a pretty good deal from a guy who sells aluminum diff covers for all trucks & Jeeps. I know it can be tough finding nice covers especially for the AMC 20 rear. So for $190 shipped I'm getting D30 front & AMC 20 rear covers for my Jeep. Here's a set below my brother got for his '99 F250. They come with drain plugs, bolts and gaskets. Once I get the Jeep ones I'll post a pic.

SCHWEEEET! What kind of finish is that? Looks like chrome. But I'm assuming it's a great polish on the Alum? Are they clear-coated to stay pretty? You'll have to post in the review section for us. You know you'll have to clean up all the rest of your undercarriage!
Good Luck w/them.

Yeah they are polished alum. I don't think they're cleared, not sure. All I know is they'll look better than the painted steel ones I have under there now. Paint on them is peeling, and they're due for a gear oil change anyway.

If you haven't ordered that - don't... yet. I have one on my 8's 20 that I need to swap for an OEM cover. The ribbed cover does not clear the skid plate. Make sure you've got room on your Jeep. If you do - I'll swap ya.

I have bought also some month ago but when I want mount them last week, I had some problems while there are most important as original cover, so there is no suffisant space with skid plate of tank at rear and with the direstion stabiliser forward, so we do made some adaptations

How thick are they, and do they fight rocks?
