Which Diff covers?

I am torn, the ARB's are sick, but I get weak in the stomach looking at the price. Riddlers, PSC, Terra flex, o the choices. My front is starting to seep, so I figure if I'm gonna do it, I might as well upgrade them while I have them off

07' Unlimited X
PSC Bumpers F/R
8k Warn winch
2.5" RK Max Travel
35" MTR's
5:13 yukons
Sleeved/Gusseted front
Dynomax pre-axle exhaust

Riddler, no flats to get hung up on, helps the axle skid over something versus ramming it. Indestructible.

Riddlers, I bashed mine pretty hard and nothing happened to them at all.

Poision Spyder covers are very tough and they are sponsors of JKO. If you need more than this you are breaking more than ring gears.

I have always liked Ruff Stuff Specialties 4x4 but they are not a sponsor of JKO.

PSC since you already have PSC items.

PSC since they are JKO sponsors and contribute a lot.

PSC since they are same thing as Riddlers but with their spider on it.

PSC because I have them and love them. Black powder coat with red painted spider.

I voted arb. I have em. I love em. They are great covers with lots of features and dont require paint (except touch up) I like the way the bolt heads are recessed. I like the dip stick with magnet, I like the drain plug with super strong magnet. I have beat mine bad at rausch creek and they have held up well.

ARB, I have them well worth the money,you can check oil contamination,level,
and shavings daily with the dip stick.the magnets are super strong and for the drain plug no more tread sealant with the o-ring.
I forgot they are massive.
LOVE MY ARB'S

Arb up front, Crane on the rear. The Arb has advantages as noted by others. The crane is stout, seals well and is cheaper.

I run Solid diff covers front and rear. Never had a single issue with any leaking and i've bashed em hard on rocks. Barely evens scratched them. At $60 each there's no beating them on price and quality. And you can spend the money you save on other cool shit for your jeep.
