Got Something New & It's Metal

New diff cover from ruff stuff accessories with the drain plug drilled out . Mighty strong that is for sure. But no one mentioned it to me so I will mention it. If anybody decides to get one, the stock bolts are too short. 5/16 x 1 worked out good. Anyway pics (cell phone)

I was thinking about hitting mine with some fresh paint but I kind of like the look of it right now.

I use the flush mount allen's......

They are very nice looking but they also take the bolt head out of harms way.......



That one is a Chrysler 8.25 but you get the idea.....BTW, the countersunk option comes with the grade 8 bolts....
