Fans of California-based Metalcloak have another product with which to ‘cloak’ their Jeeps. The company announced Wednesday a differential cover for Dana 30 axles, complementing the Dana 44 cover it has offered for some time.

Like its bigger stablemate, the Dana 30 cover is constructed of nodular cast iron and features an embossed ‘M’ logo and ships unfinished. Both versions of Metalcloak’s differential cover retail for $79.

For the umpteenth time, one of my fog lights is out. And, for the umpteenth time, I’m not prepared to fork over the money for a good set (or even a not-so-good set) of LED lamps.

So, I picked up another OEM-style replacement. At this rate, I’ll ‘buy’ a set of LEDs before I get around to a set of LEDs! Such is (Jeep) life!
