4.0 Good

Solid heavy duty and stood up to a good beating first time out and held fine

5.0 Tough and smooth

Very good quality- I have had the matching one on the rear axle for years. Very strong. The fill port is higher than my OEM differential cover. "Overfilling" maybe isn't a good thing?

5.0 It really CAN take a bullet

At first, I was leery about spending so much cash on a diff cover. Once I received this part, it no longer mattered. This cover is ARMOR for the front pumpkin. The piece is incredibly thick and heavy. The mating surface to the axle housing is perfectly machined, and there wasn't a single burr or imperfection in its surfacing or mounting. So far, I've rubbed this cover over some fallen timber, and smacked it once into a rock outcropping. It won't even chip. With the elevated and recessed oil-fill plug hole, I don't even think about my pumpkin as a weak spot anymore.

5.0 Tough & Unique

Bought diff covers for both the front 44 and rear 60. Both are heavy duty, they came ready to paint with all needed hardware. I can't wait to get them off road and put them to the test I have no doubts they will take a beating and protect lockers and gears.

5.0 Heavy duty.

Beefy cover. Comes as a raw casting so it will need to be painted to prevent rusting.
