Question Diff Drain Plugs

No diff drain plugs! What a pain.

2 Questions:

1.) Has anyone made a DIY drain plug for the stock D30 or D44 diff? I read somewhere about drilling the bottom cover bolt hole further in - anyone have experience with that?

2.) What are the cheapest aftermarket diff covers for D30 & D44 that have drain plugs?

Thank you WF!

It's so easy to just unbolt and remove the cover and then new RTV or LubeLocker Gasket, then refill....

Plus with unbolting the cover you can visually inspect the diff as well, to make sure everything looks fine.
