We just went through this on Saturday. The aftermarket covers say do not fill until you see it or it will leak the overflow from the breather tubes. I found the front took 1 1/3 quarts and the back took 2.375 quarts. Mike filled that much and was able to stick his pinky in between the first and second knuckle to touch it.

Hows that for precise measuring, lol. When I bought the oil at the dealership he said front was 1.36 and the back was 2.33, that was for stock covers and he sold me 4 quarts. Aftermarket take a little bit more according to pinky measuring.

Trust me Parker. Get the Riddlers, and just fill until it starts to drip from the plug hole. That's what my ASE Jeep trained mechanic at the dealer did. Lol.

Being as picky as I am with this kind of things I couldn't just do that Rob.

With a stock unlifted Jeep I would think it would be ok to fill it till it's full. But at least with mine, I had to (for the rear diff) placed the Jeep on my driveway to lower the front end instead of just lifting the rear end to level out the rear diff, this is do to the angle it sits with my lift. I couldn't fill it with the amount it calls for until I did that.

But then again, I often deal with engineers and tend to agree with them too much on safety factors. Nuff said I guess.

Parker--if you don't put the full amount in your diffs, your steering wheel could lock up if not fall off!

Wow, and I thought I was an anal nit picking prick.

Well at least I am still a prick.

Seriously though Bernie, I am glad you posted this. My rear axle is twisted wayyyy back so that I can get the proper DS angle with my lift and TT. I never considered what it would do to my diff oil level. I will probably put the front end in the driveway or jack the rear up when I fill mine now.

But Parker's not lifted, so I don't see a problem. Mmmkay? I mean other than the steering locking up and the wheels falling off. Lol. And don't forget to pick up a can of squelch for the radio. And some blinker fluid. Never know when you might need them. Lmao!!!

P.S., I pay people to work on my heap, and it's all guaranteed. Yeah, I'm that lazy.

Seriously though Parker read this on aftermarket diff covers for Rubicons.

2006 Rubicon Solid Differential Covers Clearence Issues? - JeepForum.com


This is why I haven't bought any myself.


Here is one post from this thread:

"Update. Well I installed both Solid diff covers. Rear has no problem. Front has major issues with clearance with the track bar. I am in contact with Soild and waiting to hear back what they want me to do. Do not install on Dana 44 front with a Rubicon. This clearance issue should be desplayed on their website! I have ordered a Zone Off Road Differential Guard."

Bernie, I have read about those same issues and have hesitated to install a diff cover on mine for the same reasons and I only have a D30.

Couple of solutions - they do make off set TREs that can be used on the tie rod and the frame side of some track bars.

Also, Barnett makes a diff cover that is super beefy on the bottom half - where it would normally need to be, and normal on the top half for clearance.

FWIW

Yeah, I looked into the ARB covers shortly after I got my Jeep and started rock crawling at Calico. But with all the research I did I came up with this problem. When I serviced my diffs I noticed how thick my covers are and decided to keep them and perhaps buy a guard like these RCX Armor - Diff Guards.

I have banged them up front and rear several times and scraped then on top of rocks without a problem--yet. But I know that is something I need to do and is in my seemingly endless things I want/should do to it.

MY STEERING WHEEL COULD FALL OFF!!!!?? That sounds dangerous, and I was just worried about my ring and pinion EXPLODING because of no oil.

I might have to look into these.

I have some half covers on my front and rear diffs right now. But I've hit them a few time before the half covers went on so the stock covers are a little chipped and bent on the bottom, and i think thats causing them to leak, or i really suck with rtv (which could also be the case haha

Front/Rear
You can see the slow drip leak I have

The covers are either warn (which i doubt cause the warns have a big W imprinted on them), Rampage, or Rugged ridge.

It's ok Rob, I know people that can fix things like that, call this guy I know; (202) 456-1111.

But whatever you do DON'T give them my name--PLEASE.

You're both wrong, I give you my word Rob, there is no charge involved nor does it involve anything with sex. I just know this guy can help you with that.

Besides--202 is a legitimate area code; look it up.

Lorie--you make me out to be some kind of a weirdo with a one track mind. What are people that have not met me going to think?

Lorie I am joking with you--but I am!

Melanie called me in tears asking me (Daddy) to help her that she just got into a 6 car pile-up on the 60 freeway and Central while on her way to UCR. She and everyone involved seemed to be ok. I just don't want to think of the pain in the rear it will be if the insurance company decide it's cheaper to total her 2006 Mazda 3 with only 42K miles, this car is (was) in great condition.
