10 Bolt Diff Cover Guard

In the dirt and rocks, sheetmetal differential covers are prone to impact and denting. This either pushes the cover into the ring gear, which starts to wear a hole in the cover, or the dent distorts the edge seal area and the cover starts to leak gear oil. Aftermarket replacement covers or guards can help prevent these issues. All 10-bolt version axles use the same cover.
