Default Decideing on differential cover

Hey guys I need some help. I am looking to get a differential cover. I don't know if I should go with a mag-hytec and powder coat it white or just get the oasis one that is black with the polished rams head. What do you guys think?

The thing that i don't care for on most of the chrome ones
They don't have a drain plug
so you have to pull the whole cover off to drain the fluid, just like the OEM part
then you have to clean off the gasket from the cover, the gasket off the differential housing. Buy a new gasket & RTV, as well as all the time it takes

With mine, i unscrew the bottom plug & let it drain, meanwhile i check the Threaded MAGNETIC Drain Plug for metal filings, then i replace the plug & fill it up. Nothing to it
