ARB diff covers installed on 2014 Rubicon, too way more than recommended?

OK, just put on ARB diff cover front and back, followed ARB instructions and marked the dipstick to match the drain plug on the takeoffs. I put in 1.75 (.50 more) quarts in the front and 3.25 (almost 1 quart more) in the rear. Whats up? Did I do something wrong? I know it will over flow through the drain plug if I add too much. I just drove it 15 miles and no problems over flowing. Is this some thing that will slowly happen (over flow), and can I harm it if it is too full. I put in the Front 2.7 pints (1.35 quarts) Rear 4.75 pints (2.375 quarts) that the write up called for but it barley registered on the dip so I brought it up to the mark on the dip.

Anyone have any input....

ARB diff covers are designed to accommodate axles with high driveline angles. They will hold more fluid but don't necessarily need it if your driveline angles are stock. If you put too much fluid in, you'll end up making a mess when it gets hot and comes out the vent.
