10 bolt G2 8.25 Chrysler diff cover installed!

I ordered a black G2 diff cover for my wk last week from amazon. Stock length MLL's are on their way also. In my last vehicle, 2002 dodge dakota I once punctured my rear diff cover on a rock so it has always been on my list to replace the one on my wk.

$131 shipped on amazon



It went on fine. The only hitch was you really need a 6mm allen key on a socket drive to get it tight. I used a t40 bit that was close. You will need an 8mm key for the drain/fill plugs.

Remove old thin cover:


Inspect gear oil. Mine was changed at 52,000 and at 71,000 still looked clearish new. Awesome



Scrape old rtv with a razorblade. Get it clean and dry.

Add new provided black rtv all around the flange and around each hole.

Install new cover with countersunk cap head screws. 44ftlb



Let the rtv dry for a few minutes then add 2 qts of 75w/140 full synthetic gear oil.

Done!

Note: i removed the cheeseball sticker from the center. Looks better bare.

Here are some more pics:

Looks pretty good under there! I will update if the track bar hits it or the dipstick.

I really like this cover. Not having to remove the diff cover when changing oil is nice. Does it come with new bolts? Please let us know if there are any clearance issues!

Note: when i was throwing my 75w/140 bottles away i noticed that one of them still had about a half inch of oil in the bottom. I opened the dipstick hole and poured in the rest. The manual always said 2.18 qts. Capacity but ive never got that much to fit. Barely a whole 2 qts with the stock cover. So this cover spills out the fillhole at 1.85 qts or so. Pour the rest in the top. Easy.

It comes with cap screws (6mm hex key) aka allen. The only clearance issue i forsee is the track bar vs the "dipstick" the top red fitting. If it does hit it off road i will just throw a bolt in place of the dipstick.

Looks suspiciously like the Solid Axle Ind. cover but with more access - I like it. :-)
