    Are you looking to replace your Diff Cover with a Aftermarket Diff Cover??

    If you can afford it I would go with the aftrmarket aluminum finned covers. Plenty of strength plus the added cooling of alum. over the steel...Unless you hit a big rock If you're planning on doing any rock crawling then disregard.

    i am willing to spend the money to get a GOOD cover. i have been eyeballing the extreme covers ($178 ea) from purple cranium but may end up getting just a spider ($144ea). i want the extreme cover but worry about heat, with a 1/2 flange and 3/8 body not a lot of heat will get past but it does come with a drain plug and fills from the top which are things i really like.
