Semi OT: Griz G1022 Splitter / Guard Upgrade

<semi-rant> I haven't made any sawdust for a couple-three weeks. Our water heater died so my main project has been making the utility room useful again. (I don't necessarily care if I change clothes more than once a week but OTHER people in the office have other opinions. <g>)
As of this afternoon the utility room is 100% up and running again. New water heater, new paint on the walls, new linoleum, washer & dryer installed & working, new baseboard, new door sill, and the door rehung. Management (SWMBO) happy, everyone happy, all pigs loaded & ready for takeoff. (BTW my crosscut sled on my TS cuts 6" plastic baseboard VERY square. <g>)
The one-car gara^H^H^H^Hshop has been bursting will all kinds of extra crap. Almost every operation, such as "Get screwdriver from pegboard" has needed several extra steps just to GET to the pegboard. Simple chaos, or interior decoration by KISS & the Mansons, would be an improvement. ;-)
The "Kooo-day-graaahhhh" ---->> someone (not me) knocked a step ladder over into the Grizzly G1022 table saw. (The stepladder normally hangs on the far wall but it would take Sir Edmund Hillary and Tensing Norgay in their prime two weeks to get there from the table saw with the shop in its present condition <g>) The step ladder was saved from damage, as was the table saw itself, by the Medal-of-Honor sacrifice of the TS guard and spitter. It gave its life so the TS and stepladder could live. Film at 11. </semi-rant>
There's no doubt in my mind but that I couldn't hammer on the guard and make it work just as good as it did when it was new -- but why bother? It would take a long time and when I was done I'd have a guard / splitter which is inconvenient to install, difficult to align, not as wide as even a thin-kerf blade, and channels all the sawdust from the top of the teeth back in my direction. SWMBO (whoops, I let the cat out of the bag) is on the hook to get a replacement. I figure, why not take this opportunity to get something really safe and useful?
Any recommendations for a guard / splitter for a G1022? I have a Shop Fox Original mounted for 0" left, 35 15/16" left cut if that matters.
Thanks.

This month's Wood (or is it American WW?) have a review of after market splitters. You might want to head over to Woodcraft, (or Lowe's, wherever you find the magazines) and check out a copy.
