Differential Covers

Anyone know any aftermarket differential covers for a WJ? Looking for something with drain plug and tougher than stock. I have a limited with 4.7 V8.

Look at Blue Torch Fab. They are the only place that carry a 44a cover. Tons of places offer a 30 cover.

Bama you rock!!! BTF Dana 44a Kryptonite Differential Cover is on the way. Going to order the 30 next week. I have been searching for days. New to the forum. Love it almost as much as my WJ. : )

Blue Torch Fab's rear cover is pretty much the only option. It's definitely beefy. Be aware that installing it requires you to either remove your rear sway bar completely or space it out from the axle 1" or so. Iron Rock Offroad offers a pair of spacers for this, or you can just make your own by drilling some holes in steel or aluminum bar stock. Also, your diff fluid capacity will increase. Buy an extra qt to refill it.

There are tons of covers for the front though. It looks like BTF dropped their pricing recently, I recall them being in the $140 price range. Now they are $90 for the D30 and $114 for the D44a. Not bad. I picked up the cast iron Riddler cover for the front diff about a year ago. The SOLID diff cover is also popular, mostly because it is cheap and strong. $65. The BTF covers would certainly be easier to add a drain plug to though. What a blessing that would be!
