Rear axle cover
« on: July 1, 2015, 08:10:42 AM »

Anyone have thoughts on a cover for the 14 bolt? My stock cover is leaking and I need to replace it. Wondering if I should just use the el cheapo stock replacement or are there any advantages of going with a fancier larger capacity finned style cover?

If you do some serious towing the mag-hytec is a good one, but $$$

There are other covers available if the Mag-hytec is to much.. The B&M has a new design that adds additional support on the end caps.

Banks finally came out with the last video on his new diff cover, they look pretty good and have been on the market for little while now... And they clear sway bars Byran...

Thanks for sharing.

I watched the earlier series a while back and I was concerned when that series ended with no resolution.

Looks as though they have done their due diligence.

I watched a bunch of Gale Banks videos. That guy knows his stuff. He illustrates how those flat back diff covers starve the pinion bearings of oil. The higher oil volumes are not doing the diff any favours either. Stick with the stock round back design. It was made that way for a reason!  :thumbsup:
