Good protection at a good price

Overall, a nice piece of protection. Fits as designed with no problems. Just re-use your original diff cover bolts as the allen head hardware supplied is cheesy. If the open hole in the allen head is packed full of dirt...good luck, and if they stick, they are not coming out after you strip the allen head holes from reaming on them.
