Heavy duty c200 diff cover idea

First off this is an idea for the first gen c200 rear axle but it may work on a 2nd gen. I was taking apart a front r200 diff i have out of a first gen and they have a really nice thick cast iron cover on them that has an integrated diff mount. I was thinking you could cut off the diff mount and you would have a super thick cast iron cover for the rear since it looks to be the same bolt pattern.... what do you guys think?

Pretty much stock.

I would love a heavy duty cover that gives more oil capacity for my C200 axle in my 2007 LE.

would that increase temperature in the rear oil?

The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

Only if it decreases the amount of fluid in the diff.

OP: If someone is close to you, I would suggest that you have them pick it up or ship it to them and have them check it. It would be very nice for the off road crowd to have some armor like this since all they have now is the AC diff skid but zero (back-up) protection. This would also help eliminate the pealing of the stock OEM cover which results in leakage (penski did this a couple of times).

I'm going to install it on my truck this next week and see how it works out. Then i will find a 2nd gen and see if it's the same pattern. This should not change fluid temperature at all and will keep stock capacity.

Pretty much stock.
