$50 for the steel one from Just for jeeps.com and it bolts right in place of the old plastic one.

Yeah... I was gonna say mine weighted a ton when I had to remove it to do the differential service. Definitely don't think it would come off, especially not like yours seems to...

Did the same thing last month with mine, bolts pulled through in the front, and was dragging on the road after I had been on a crappy gravel road up north. How yours broke off is pretty much what mine would have done if I didn't stop and take it off the rest of the way. Replaced it with the steel one, that one doesn't look like it would go anywhere.

Yeah the steel one if heavy to take off, but those elongated holes in the front definitely make it a breeze to put on despite the weight, rather than having to hold the whole thing up while you bolt it on.

i think they are all plastic unless you had an offroad package.

My 2005 Limited has steel ones that are heavy as heck to take off. Maybe the newer ones are plastic. I know my 2006 Laredo one has plastic ones.
