Rear differential cover (C200) after market replacement?

Hi all, I'm going to be doing the differential vent mod soon and at the same time I was going to replace the oil with AMESOIL. While I was doing all this I thought I might as well look into replaceing the cover with something bigger/better. I know you can get them for the Titan (M226) which are used in certain Frontiers, mine does have the C200 but I can't seem to find anyone who sells new/different covers for them. Anyone know if there is anything out there? Also, my 05 fronty has the original cover and I think I've seen newer fronty's with a different (though probably still stock) finned cover - I guess my question is is this a direct Nissan part I could order or is it something aftermarket (or am I just seeing an M226 finned cover?)

Lastly, any other tips or problems I may run into? I plan on draining the oil, removing the cover and looking everything over, cleaning it out as best I can and putting in AMSOIL. What gasket material should I use or if I do find a replacement cover will it come with a proper gasket?

First, you have a c200k, not a c200.

Second, there is only 1 aftermarket cover that is designed for offroading so it does not have fins, it is just 3/8th or etc... plate.

The only OEM finned covers are for the m226 which won't work on your c200k.

Thank you dubie. No wonder I was having trouble finding anything on a 05+ with a c200 diff...

Guess I will just drain and fill and not worry about taking the cover off at all. While it's draining I'll take care of the vent mod. Should be a pretty easy task.
