Currently in Moab and having a blast. I can not believe I’ve never made it here before now living this close.

Was on the 2" Dynatrac starter lift, with both Synergy and SteerSmarts to fill what was missing. I pulled the Dynatrac parts and replaced them with 3.5" Metalcloak Gamechanger parts. Now on a Metalcloak/Synergy/SteerSmarts hybrid kit. Some comparisons of both.

I have two questions is that the American venture light kit on the fender delete? And I see you have the ARB differential cover someone told me the only one out there the best one is the Dana. I think that's the one the one that makes the axles they said that one doesn't let enough fluid or something have you had any problems I like that ARB because it's red have you had any problems with it on the differential cover ARB

Yes, the highline fender braces w/ sequential leds and the front and rear fender liners are from American Adventure Labs. I also used their fender retention hardware kits all around. Awesome products!

And yes, the factory axles are from Dana. And they do have a nice set of armored diff covers, but I didn't want blue or black. The ARB covers have zero affect on diff oil capacity. The only issue I've had, is interference between the front diff cover and the steersmarts track bar. If they had mirror imaged the front cover, to have the dip stick further to the driver side, it wouldn't be an issue.

I got a Metalcloak track bar, which is a smaller solid bar stock design, in hopes that it will clear the cover. I haven't had a chance to install it yet, to see if they play well with each other. It only contacts when the whole axle compresses, like when coming down a drop off.

Damn that looks so good but couple shops told me to use the other brand it was only one good but like you said you don't have any problems
Unfortunately, its typical for shops to push what they sell. Even if they need to add some bullshit to their pitch.

If I had to do it over again, I'd go with either Metalcloak or Next Venture Motorsports. They both ship out bare metal, so you can have them powder coated however you like.

Also, I got mine from the company Just Differentials.

I guess it does make a little sense though for Dana to have a good one since they make the axles
