Teraflex Dana 44 HD Differential Cover
Aftermarket differential covers are something that every off-roading Jeep owner should invest in. At a minimum you should reinforce the front one. The factory cover is thin and will bend easily when impacted. This can cause lots of damage to the internals of the differential and end your wheeling trip prematurely.
On the JeepsOnTrails 2012 JKR we had initially put a Solid brand differential cover on the front and while it did the job and probably saved us from being stranded more than once it did have an issue. At full lock it would rub the tie rod. I could have taken the grinder to it but instead it was moved to the rear of one of our other Jeeps.
First thing we do is gather up our materials.
