Provided you have the stock diff cover, if you have a after market cover most will have the hole raised up so you can get the right amount in even when you have rotated the rear end when installing a CV drive shaft. Make sure you use the amount specified by the FSM for your model rear end if that is the case.

Fixed it for ya.
Like 30-284 said, if ya have mods (depending on what they are), it might not fill to the fill hole.

When I changed out my stock covers to Riddlers, I put in the amount stated in the FSM.

sorry to hi-jack this thread....

I am going to look at a Jeep in the next state over from me. I see what looked like pinion leaks on front and back axles. My question is what is the size of the thread insert to check the oil level? It is a 04 Wrangler Unlimited (D44 on rear and D30? in front). If I buy, its a hell of a trek back home and I want to make sure the diff's have fluid.
