Default G2 Diff Cover

Picked one up for the rear.


Very nice quality, has dip stick to check fluid, cooling fins, added oil capacity, separate fill and drain holes and spot for temp sensors. Also no gasket goop needed as seals with an O rings.

Looks good. What did it cost you and where from?

Do these really work or do any good?

If it's cheaper than a Maghytech? If so I'll get one for sure. What's the price? W

Edit: Same price as the Mag, actually found the Mag cheaper. I'll stick to my original plan of a Mag.

Got it from summit racing, it was $249.00. I can't see many getting this unless you tow quite a bit and care about your rear end health.

The feedback I got was the added capacity helps quite a bit if you tow and built in dip stick makes checking fluid level easy and fast.

I got it as I tow a lot and wanted the extra capacity and also wanted to be able to change the fluid without removing the cover. The separate drain and fill plugs make changes a breeze.

It is also plumed for a temp sensor which I will also be adding.

For the average driver I would not recommend this.

I can't seem to find anything in between a $40 factory type replacement and the $200+ aftermarket.

All i want is one with a drain valve. Don't need the looks or the fancy temp probe.
