After todays run up Gold Mountain in Big Bear today which I did pretty good job at doing. I have decided I need Diff Armor and probly lower control arm armor. I had several big hits on the rocks today and managed to hit everything on my truck except the rock rails go figure. The Diff took some big hits. I was the only Fj there which was kind of weird since most of our runs are mostly FJs. Just thought I would see what people are running. I want to lose as little clearance as possible.

I can only think of two pieces of diff armor on the market.

All Phase and All Pro.

All phase has an actual skid that protects from underneath.

All Pro has a weld on piece that protects the rear of the diff (protects the weak shell casing).

Where do I find the All Phase Skids at? I tried to look them up online and couldn`t find them. What store has them? I need them.

internet rumor has it that all phase isn't going to do any more rear diff plates because of the group buy GTH from the blue room. their diff plate definitely protects, but it also has some serious design flaws...u-bolts rub against the sway bar, u-bolt mounting bracket sits directly on top of the brake line, and also reduces your clearance by a good inch or so.

I have two of the AllPhase skids that I will let go at $100 each.

No guarantees that you won't have to do some "adjusting" to get a fit.

That is probobly the more accurate way of stating the facts based on all I have seen.

Also why I have two of them and neither is installed on my truck.

The adjustments wern't hard to do at all, for the brake line issue you just tighten the forward nut on the Ubolt more than the rear so the plate is not near the line and as an extra precaution wrap fuel hose around the line, as for the sway bar, hitting, I just bent the Fwd Bolt in a tiny bit and all gravy. As for loosing an inch of clearance, well I see it as a trade off, I can bash that plate and drag over stuff with the lower clearance or I can save the inch and loose my drain plug and all fluid within. worst case scenerio of course.

Frankly, my biggist issue is that I am lazy and hate getting up and down from under the truck so if it doesn't bolt right on, well, it doesn't bolt on.

As for the clearance issue, I think I agree with your assessment, and empty pumpkin and inch higher is not very useful.
