Default Which Differential Cover?

Gonna ask for a differential cover for Christmas for the truck. I have it narrowed down to 5 different one, but not sure which I want. So i need FRF's help:

1) Solid Industires 8.8 Cover (but I wont color match)



2) Riddler 8.8 cover painted to match:



3) Factory one powdercoated Red with stainless bolts

4) FoMoCo one:

i like the solid one... to me the chrome one would kind of be a waste consideridering its under your truck so i think the chrome will just get ruined and it will ruin the look of it

I have the Solid diff cover. Looks awsome and serves a purpose. Heavy duty but cast

Ya just take a sander to it.

Or you can take a grinding wheel to it get the highest grit you can find. So it would trash it.

FoMoCo simply because it has the lower drain plug.
