I cannot find any gaskets for new AEV Dana M210 & M220 diff covers. If anyone has any ideas let me know. I prefer Lubelocker but they don't make gaskets for M210 & M220.

So, the factory gaskets were in good enough condition to reuse. That is news to me. I will probably have a tube of RTV on hand just in case. I really appreciate the information. Which diff covers did you buy?

Here is another question. Please cross check my data. In reading my manual I show that the Dana 210 uses SAE 75W85 API GL5.

The Dana 220 uses the same SAE 75W85 API GL5??? Normally, the rear diff uses 75W140 API GL5. I need confirmation that both front (Dana M210) and rear (Dana 220) diffs use the same oil.

Help appreciated

I think they are supposed to be different and is you have the limited slip differential, there is an additive you are supposed to add as well.

Yes, the stock diff gaskets are good to reuse. They are metal with a rubber coating (i believe) so unless you ruin them they should be good.

Yes, same gesr oil front/rear. I used castrol synthetic from walmart.

I have the MotoBilt covers.

Super helpful. :worthy:

Thanks, I honestly cannot remember what was factory on my JK when I did the diffs on that one.

Loving this new Jeep.

Hey given the differentials have a drain and fill plug, what is your reason to remove the cover?

Well, I put the AEVs on tonight. Last time I did diff covers my JK was lifted. It took me a few struggling minutes to realize that it works best when you jack up the Jeep a bit so you have clearance from the track bar both front and back. Now, I have steel bumpers so a slight lift was not tough. Careful if you have plastic bumpers. I will get a pick tomorrow of the diff covers. Also, I did reuse the factory seal which looked very good. I prefer purple punch for my diffs (Royal Purple 75W-90). I bought it from Amazon and saved some $$.

AEV makes nice stuff. Recessed hardware and their oversized fill plug with the axle specific correct level pug is a winner IMO.
Maybe others have it as well but not that I've seen.
