I built one out of 1/4 scrap plate I had around ... nothing fancy but does the job. There are a few things I'd change on it (ie: ubolts facing some other way other than down .... extend front to help protect flange).

I cut all of the bolts off just below the nuts and so far I haven't had any issues with them getting caught on stuff. If I was to redo it though I change the mounting so that the ubolts where horizontal instead of vertical - or box in the lower section to protect the bolts.

Cover is 1/4" thick so I've lost that much clearance under the pumpkin. It is sitting flat against the bottom of the pumkin. I'll take that clearance loss over having the lip exposed and no protection for the diff cover.

Aftermarket thick diff cover and weld some steel to the bottom of the diff to ramp the lip in the back.
