Our differential guards use a thick steel plate for the base ring. This helps spread the load of any impact over the surface of the differential.
The armor structure is a very beefy cold rolled solid round stock for the hoops and bars. Solid round stock is used to take away the chance of the tube collapsing or crushing.
Each guard is jig welded for precise fitment every time and clamped for the cooling procedure to help ensure a good straight girdle.
All welds are cleaned and sharp spots are buffed off to leave a clean and smooth product. They are shipped with a glossy black finish for a great look when installed.
Please note: Some diff covers with raised lips will need to have the lips ground flush with the bolt flange for the guards to bolt on. It is also possible that due to the many styles of covers on the market and available from the aftermarket dealers, the guards might need to be ground to allow correct clearance of cover.
To install, you simply remove your diff cover (its about time you changed your gear oil anyway isn't it? :^) and reinstall with the Differential Guard placed over the bolt flange.
Low profile of the guard keeps it tucked in tight to the diff cover.
On the right, is the actual 8.25 guard for your rear axle.
