what truck do you have? ie trans/model. the stillen cover will only work on the M226 rear diff, Nismo or 6 speed
I've got a 2006 king cab frontier 6speed 4x2.

It is expensive but my other option (ballistic fab) doesn't look to promising : ( Thanks for the help-Laterz.
the OEM titan cover is bigger then the frontier cover
^^ isn't that just the PLM cover?

The main thing when searching for a diff cover is to decided if you want it for looks or function. If you want to go offroading, then a solid one is needed (not aluminum) but if you are racing, then a finned aluminum one would work.

Then you have to consider price. Some are cheap and easy while others are a bit expensive but have the most bang for your buck.

Personally I would suggest the MagTec cover since its holds the most fluid and looks nice in my opinion. It also has a fill gauge and a temp gauge option.
Cool so the mag-hytech nissan titan cover will fit the frontier huh? if so I think that is the one for me : ) style n function=I love it!! Thanks for the input

Just so others don't read your post and take it wrong, the Titan, Nismo Frontier and 6speed manual Frontier's all use the same diff/pumpkin bolt pattern (m226). All other Frontiers have the c200k diff. The quick check for visuals is that the m226 is 12bolts while the c200k is 8bolts.
To each their own. I've got the Stillen cover and wouldn't want another.

Awhile ago there was a guy on here selling them. Other than that, I would look on the Titan forums and post an ad. Thats what I was going to do but I got the Stillen cover pretty cheap.

Yep it will
Ive heard in other forums about frontier diffs being weak? I thought a dana 44 was a good axle? I have a 2010 crew cab pro4x.
Ive just ordered the Mag Hy tec diff cover for a titan. Im pumped. I cant wait to get it. Ill post pics of finished install. Any one have any suggestions on fluid?
