2018 front pinion cover issues?

I was just curious if any of you guys have seen or heard of any problems/failures of the new and improved 2018+ pinion covers?
I debated on replacing mine immediately with aftermarket but the new model covers are steel now rather than aluminum so I haven't. I haven't seen or heard anything about the new machines and just wondered if any of you have.

I have a 2018 XP 1000 that is now a year old and has 100 hrs of West Virginia, Hatfield McCoy trails on it. No issues. And I have not heard of any 2018ís blowing their front diff.
