Front differential cover?

I'm gonna be changing the fluid while the front diff. is out. I've been searching but can't really find what I'm looking for.

Do they make an aftermarket front diff cover with a low tapped hole and plug for easier changes in the future?

I don't think anyone does. Well at least I haven't found one.

If you find one let me know.

rwenzing did this but I don't have his skills or tools.

I was thinking of having someone weld a bung in the cover so I can just put a bolt into it. Another thing I was thinking about was to have someone weld a bung on the bottom where Bob's is but I think it would hang too low.

Thanks.

I'll probably see if I can weld a thread-o-let onto the cover and get a plug. We've got all that stuff at work. I just don't know how well the cover will weld.
