12 bolt rear differential guard

Hi all,

I'm looking for a rear differential guard that actually protects the rear differential. The only thing I'm seeing online is something of a ring that helps stiffen the flange and protects the back of the rear differential, but does not protect the front of the flange from hits like the one I took. See pics. One is a full differential guard I see is available for Wranglers (which is something like what I want), one is the damage I did to my rear differential, and one is the only one I found available for a Jeep Commander 12 bolt. Any advice?

As far as I know the 4xGuard diff guard is the only one made for the 12 bolt. But here is a heavy duty 12 bolt diff cover that will replace the factory cover: http://undercoverfab.com/fabricated-differential-covers/476-wk-xk-qdii-chrysler-825-hd-diff-cover-welded.html

Looks like that Wrangler version bolts on with several U bolts. It may bolt to the XK also as is or with some slight modification. I'll bet some of the 4WD stores would let you trial fit before buying.
