Diff cover pic request

I am planning to get the ARB diff cover. I want something a little different, so I'm thinking of getting the black one. Does anyone have pix of their black ARB diff cover, installed obviously?

Don't have that setup. But I figure that others may be wanting to see what brand to get - I submit this (ARB is great also but this is what I run)

As I understand it, the PSC is made by the same company (Just a cooler logo). Anyway, I've never seen anything other than a stock diff cover fail. All the aftermarket ones are very good I think.

Some of the early ARBs had clearance issues with the Rubi D44 but I think that they have resolved that - based on posts that I've read.

Is your 2012 a rubi?

I have the Riddlers on mine, in no way do I think I could kill them. I feel they have a big advantage over something like an ARB, because the ARBs have a "flat" area for the bolt flange. Which is something to get hung up on, where-as the Riddlers/PSC don't have a flat area. Which promotes you getting over an obstacle.

Riddler covers also have a spot for the rubi e locker brackets. That's why I went with them. Plus they look even more awesom-er when they are painted up!

Looks wise, I think the river raider diff covers take the cake. But price wise, and from what it seems here as shown in the video,durability, Riddler. But I am sure that most other manufacturers could handle just as much force

You don't like the green?

I don't either.................

They were/are powdercoated black and I wanted some green so I painted over the PC. That part worked fine, but I'm not a painter and it shows.

If you can weld or know someone that can... this is a really nice option for the money. Mig or Tig would work very well on this. I have this on my mod list for the near future. $59 Just throwing out an option for ya.

Of course they will weld it up for you.
