Nice write-up Peter, I just finished my front sewer cap (all except for cutting the fill plug) and need to finish up the rear one now. I just have to measure for clearance on the gas tank in the back and see how much I need to cut off.

Why not just drain, clean and weld the holes shut. Then, put a dif guard on it like there s/h/b. I blew my dif out at the MAR Spring Rally (Sept LR Monthly shows it all). Unless, of course, you just need an excuse to weld in your bare feet and in the front yard.

As my old man always says you can polish a turd all you want, but at the end of the day you still have SH*T...

Basically the pos cover got pushed against the ring gear and would have to been knocked out anyway. Plus when I break something I try and fix it so it doesn't happen again. Unless of course it just keeps breaking, then it gets scrapped...and that's why I don't wheel a rover anymore.

And I wasn't barefoot, I had sandals...and it wasn't my front yard, but my back yard...

I've been down the weld the holes route and will be sewer capping the diff. The welds held for over a year but on a recent trip I hit the diff guard too hard and it opened up a couple of welds a little bit.

Nice job on the write up Pete! I agree with all of it! No reason why not to chop off the crap cover and put on something good, I can see anything wrong with it, specially the price!
