5.0Riddler Dana 30 Diff cover
Very nice cover. Bolts are recessed and the cover is a very low profile. It worked great on my Jeep XJ Dana 30 4.88 with ARB , with no clearance issues . It’s thick cast with a smooth profile. This came recommended by a friend and it worked perfectly. I couldn't be happier with it.
5.0Tough and smooth
Very good quality- I have had the matching one on the rear axle for years. Very strong. The fill port is higher than my OEM differential cover. "Overfilling" maybe isn't a good thing?

5.0It really CAN take a bullet
At first, I was leery about spending so much cash on a diff cover. Once I received this part, it no longer mattered.
This cover is ARMOR for the front pumpkin. The piece is incredibly thick and heavy. The mating surface to the axle housing is perfectly machined, and there wasn't a single burr or imperfection in its surfacing or mounting.
So far, I've rubbed this cover over some fallen timber, and smacked it once into a rock outcropping. It won't even chip. With the elevated and recessed oil-fill plug hole, I don't even think about my pumpkin as a weak spot anymore.

Easy to install a must have to protect your lockers. This housing will not fail you. Built right.
Jason, unfortunately we don't offer a diff cover for the 96zj Jeep. Thank you for our question.
I have a 86 cj7 with the thicker tie rod 1.25. Will I have an issue with clearance on the Dana 30?
Answer this question
It sticks out just the added thickness of the cover which is 1/4 inch more. Turn your wheels all the way left and right and check your clearance now. If you have more than 3/8 of an inch you will be ok.
Will this Dana 30 diff cover fit a stock front trackbar set up on my 2006 LJ without clearance issues?
Answer this question
Thanks for asking. I have not seen any clearance issues with the Riddler Cast Iron Dana 30 Differential Cover on stock height 2006 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.
