i would get a new diff cover

same price, same or better protection, looks better, takes up way less space

these are good imo

a lot of people like Riddlers

The top and doors on this vehicle are designed only for protection against the elements. Do not rely on the top and doors to contain occupants within the vehicle or to protect against injury during an accident. Wear seatbelts at all times.

The Turbo City Rock-It slider has been ripped off more axles by rocks in my area than is reasonable, I wouldn't touch it. It's a rather flimsy design and if it gets hung up on a rock, it's coming off whether you want it to or not. Turbo City doesn't make many parts I'd install on my TJ.

When you have a choice, buy American.

I'd like to add to his question - which type provides better protection against rocks for the rear diff? A well made slider that protects the front & back of the rear diff, or a heavy cover (i.e. Solid or Riddler)?

I'd think a slider is better, but the heavy cover type seems to be much more common. Must be a reason.
