Anyone have any suggestions on a decent differential cover (Dana 30 and 44)? I am about to get my 2012 JKU regeared and want a little extra protection.

ARB, Riddler, Poison Spyder all make awesome diff covers IMO

I've used Riddler and Poison Spyder(basically identical). And I've beat them both on rocks without more than scratching paint off.

Any one running RuffStuff/BTF/River Raider style covers with the stock track bar and a low lift?

I have riddler front, PSC rear.

Any decent brand will be fine. Get whatever you can get a better deal on. I've found riddler are usually the best deal.

Thanks for all the advice! Are the aftermarket ones that much better than the stock covers?

Yup, they're much better, made to take a hit. They're made of thicker steel. Not sure what the stock ones are made of, but they're way to thin and tend to peel off with any contact with rocks.
