That would be a whole lot easier to change the diff-fluid if you didn't have to take the diff cover off... I'll get on it right away.
you could drill a hole toward the bottom of your cover and weld a nut in it..

depends on what you use..you could use a piece of pipe coupling and pipe plug ..I would use pipe tape probably on that..or you could use a fine thread bolt and nut with either a teflon or rubber washer

RednekYJ Follow the link in the original post. Nothing too special just welded a nut inside the diff cover.
