Yeah I've had a few, still need a 500hp notch though. This one was truly a great one. Cali car all it's life, 75k miles in 07, Triple black, with cloth. My dream is a 65 GT350, but these fox's I'll always have a soft spot for.

Isn't it cute. I think I actually miss my little plastic fill plug. So this is what a super high clearance diff looks like folks..... yep, pretty awesome stuff!



I'm a little, just slightly tweaked out cause the top edge of the diff cover and edge of the Savvy GTS currently want to occupy the same space during suspension travel.... not so good. I'm hoping with a little massaging with the grinder they can find a happy place because the axle isn't moving forward nor will the pinion angle be altered to accommodate this little guy.... I'd just assume sell it and re-install the stock one. Although I think I can make it work. I don't see how in the world people put big diff cover's on though.... maybe I just have my axle back as far as I absolutely can have it. This diff cover was not much taller than stock, but on the top edge it is much broader whereas the factory one is round. Oh wells.... stuff aint always gonna play well together.

See- when Andy switched names- I was on my phone which doesn't even show the avatar or anything. It took me a second read of the last page or two I had read but I figured it out. But there is no tricking me!

...BFH?

Really though- I always read about a plague of lack of clearance involving aftermarket diff covers. There must be a better way! I am hoping that I don't run into any issues myself. Only one way to find out!

There is a series of aftermarket diff covers that beefs up the lower section of the cover only giving you that smooth stock style up top. I believe Blaine's wife has them on her jeep.

I think he's talking about the Barnett cover.
