i would get a new diff cover

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

these are good imo

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.

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.
