Just curious what diff covers people have and any issues they've had with them. Specifically on TJ Rubicons. I am in the market to replace my stockers and have been reading about people having problems with track bars rubbing or hitting the gas tanks. From what I read online that this seems to be a problem mostly with people who installed riddlers or poison spyders diff covers. I want to know whats the best option out there before I buy them. Thanks

No issue with the solid diff covers front or rear on a non-rubicon TJ d30 front and d44 rear.
You'll also like the prices on these much better than PSC or most others.

FYI they have been that price for a little over 2 years...

Mine have held up well, but they are bulky if you do not have a lot of clearance between the TB and diff cover.

I have rockcrushers (same as solid) on mine and just noticed my rear (D44) was rubbing on either te track bar or gas tank but deffinatly has a rub mark and that is street driving only. For the front it is extremely close (less than 1/8") to the tie rod when turning. I run the rugged ridge tie rod that is much larger in dia though. I'm set up with a 4" lift.
