Differential Cover

Alright I can always get good feedback from you guys, so I'm going to ask......What would be a good differential cover to buy? And since I'm new at the jeep thing, I have a 2012 jk with Dana 44 stock axles and what would be a good lube to replace.

Thanks for any opinions

Before you buy both dana44 covers, if you don't have a rubicon, you have a Dana 44 rear and a Dana 30 front

I'd go with an arb. A little pricey but some nice features for a cover.

I just changed mine on my Rubicon, 44's front and rear, and I used full synthetic gear oil; 75W90 front and 75W140 rear. I also installed Lubelocker gaskets instead of using sealant. Clean look and no leaks.

You will get as many opinions as answers. Ultimately get what you like and prefer. I use Royal Purple or Mobil One. I have ARB covers. You will never have a leak with RTV if you apply it properly.
