We have been selling these for over 9 years now here and elsewhere on the net, but our website is where you want to be.

Here are a list of reasons our stand above the rest!

Someone asked me about the added weight? They wanted to know about the added weight of the 3/8" material.....

Well, there are several answers to that question

#1 - It is only 2-4lbs heavier a 1/4" cover
#2 - It is not Rotating weight
#3 - It is Un-sprung weight
#4 - Possibly the best answer in the era of top heavy vehicles, It is adding weight to the lowest portion of your vehicle!

Plus the peace of mind knowing you have the strongest cover made out there protecting your gears and lockers.....



Our diff Covers pretty much speak for themselves. But here are a few important points to consider when purchasing a differential cover......

#1 - Real Thickness before you start paying more for additional thickness. Our Covers are ALL AT LEAST 3/8" thick at no extra cost to you. Now 5 other manufacturer uses 3/8" plate. It seems we had a good idea.

#2 - Materials they are made of. ALL of our covers are made of A50 (536) plate steel, it costs' about .07-.10 more per pound but the additional strength is worth it.

#3 -Fill plug placement. We put the fill plug in the area you want it to be so you can easily check the fluid level. It is above the stock plug position but not so high so as to allow overfilling. Overfilling will just blow out seals, don't do it!

#4 - Finish Machining. We all know that when steel is heated it moves, there is no changing that no matter how well it is jigged. We ALWAYS machine our covers flat after welding. Over the years several other companies have finally admitted that their steel moved just like everyone elses and have started machining theirs also! Any Welder with any experience can tell you that steel moves no matter how well it is tied down!

#5 - Welding. All of our Differential Covers are welded inside and out, yes, that doubles the time spent welding them, a cost other companies don't care to spend. We do it to insure absolute strength. Remember, any welder can have a bad day so welded twice makes way too much sense to not do.

#6 - Shipping Cost to you is $12.35 for 1 but we can ship 2 for the same cost, that is for anywhere in the US & Territories including Guam, Puerto Rico, US Virgin Islands, Hawaii, & Alaska! We also ship about 20 a week to Canada for $36 each.....

#7 - Variety. We make 10 different covers and are adding more all the time, we want to be your cover manufacturer! 14 Bolt, D70, D60, D44, D35, D30, Ford 8.8, Chrysler 8.25, Ford Sterling, Dodge 9.25,& the Toyota 9.5" are available now, lots more still on the design table!

#8 - Guarantee. Our Differential covers & all of our products have Always had an Unconditional Full Lifetime Guarantee! We don't have to say no BS, there isn't any.....

#9 - Fit. Our covers fit every stock steering assembly made and we have not run into an aftermarket setup it dosen't fit either. Our covers are made to fit very close to stock internal specs to retain their positive oiling qualities.

No, the ring gear is slightly higher inside the axle in relation to the cover, we hope to do it in the future, we just need to purchase one of those axles.

let us know when you have one that fits our axles, since they are unique to nissan and we can't use the standard d44 stuff.

then we can talk about buying diff covers from you, until then i'll stick to fabrication parts from you.

A lot of guys do solid axles swaps, which is why I posted the diff covers here. Given we don't make nissan specific, but whenever they swap out the IFS & slide in a dana 60 or 44 or even a 30, we have covers for those.
