A to Z fabrication has some nice covers
and on the main page they are currently giving 10% off everything.
unfortunately they are out of dana 30 covers for now, they said they will let me know when they are in stock.

280149822425 this is the ebay number for the D35
280149823540 number for the D44
280149822098 number for the ford 8.8
110140833669 and just for shits and giggles a riddler D30 cover for a little over 100

|Triple88a||hmm i assume "clear gearz" became popular making diff covers for hummers?|

Fox - thanks! I'm assuming that will fit my stock jeep.
Thanks for all your help guys!

There is a diff. cover that really is bullet proof. The manufacturer shot it point blank with a .44 and didnt pearce it. Some of you have probably seen it. They are cast iron and painted black inside and out.
On a side note, where the hell is the fill plug on that stupid clear gearz crap?

this is the exact same one I just bought its the SOLID cover that everyone is talking about. F-in Bulletproof!

also i assume you can first try just cleaning the metal area on ur differential.. now that u mention that you live in chicago my gues would be there is rust around the entire plug hole so its not seating right and is causing the leaking.

I wish I used the jeep for off roading...
Live downtown Chicago, use the jeep mostly for snow plowing...
AzTJ - At first I also thought it was leaking from the gasket, but now I'm not sure, it looks like it's just soaking everything from that plug.
So any regular old dif plug will work that I get from Autozone? I was at one, and the guy didn't have a clue and told me to go to a dealer.
What weight should I use if I replace the cover and gasket, and any good links on where to get one?

|ct-tj||Get a nice diff cover....... and a locker while your in there. You know you want it.|
|09-09-2007 10:35 PM|
|AzTJ||That and a few other things still don't work after the attack because of security risks.|
|09-09-2007 10:19 PM|
It says "in some cases stronger than steel and aluminum cases"
sure looks cool though
btw the yt dont work any more?

|khenderson||there was a test of diff covers in a mag a few years back when that first came out....it failed first.|
|09-09-2007 09:55 PM|
|AzTJ||^ that is a waist of money.|
|09-09-2007 09:52 PM|
|Triple88a||and wtf is that? http://www.quadratec.com/products/12011_402.htm|
|09-09-2007 09:51 PM|
|AzTJ||Its only a D35... plus we don't know if he wheels enough to need one.|

|Tj Bunch||Dude I smacked the Crap out of my front diff cover today just did not see the rock. no damage but sure woke me up.|
|09-09-2007 08:20 PM|
|khenderson||i like bunch's idea.|
|09-09-2007 08:03 PM|
|Tj Bunch||Time for a Upgrade cover.......|
|09-09-2007 07:55 PM|
|AzTJ||Its also seeping from the bottom, so it might be time to replace the gasket. You might be able to find the fill plug at NAPA or AutoZone.|

Rear Diff leaking...
I have a 97 Sport 4x4. Noticed that the Rear diff is leaking from a rubber plug in the back.
I'm assuming that I can just replace that rubber plug. While I'm at it, I'm also assuming that I should top off the fluid. What weight is recomended, and where can I find that plug from besides a dealer? Anywhere good on-line?
