    Diff covers ?

    I know there are a ton of options ... On my last jeep I ran riddler and loved them but with this setup I need a cover that won't conflict with stock components since I'm only running a leveling kit ... What are my options ?

    I called solid they said that there is some minor rubbing with the track bar mount on one of the ribs

    Correct, I've got a solid in the front and there is minor rubbing. I've considered knocking that rib down a little but it just doesn't bother me enough.

    Arb is a stout cover but that causes it to also rub with stock setup.

    Did you fold a lip over at Rausch this weekend? The stock covers are strong but folding a lip causes a fluid leak. The lube lockers have kept fluid in place even with a folded lip.

    Filing aftermarket covers is going to be the "con" you find across the board. Not all of them have the fill plug in the factory spec spot so you have to ensure you put the correct amount of fluid in there so it doesn't pour out of your axle tubes but you've got enough to keep the gears lubed.

    I'm running Teraflex front and rear. No clearance issues, and the correct fill holes are there as well.

    Poison Bombshell diff covers are really nice as well. The newer version (make sure you get the correct part number) has the correct fill height and works with stock Jeeps as well.

    x2 on the Teraflex covers, been running them for awhile now and zero issues with clearances, filling, or draining. I've also drug these across boulders and other obstacles and a little touch up paint later and back in business...
