Finally... a 12 Bolt Differential Cover.

Okay... Not quite there but real close. The Steel Armadillo is going to do a Kickstarter for the funds to produce the 12 bolt differential cover we are all asking for. They need to sell 40 of them at $275 to pay for all the molds and production costs.



The above photo is the ten bolt version

This is what I was thinking. The 4xguard is half the price but it isn't a full cover. However SOLID makes a full cover for the 10 bolt for like $60. I've emailed them about a 12 bolt and gotten no response

Anybody contacted Blue Torch Fab or Rough Stuff? And stop referring to this as a 12 Bolt...It ain't a Chevy
It's a Big Dana 44

And that Aluminum cover is bling..but way too pricey

What's wrong with calling it a 12 bolt? It has 12 bolts right? Just like a 10 bolt or should we not say that either?

Not a Dana, made by American Axle, Dana used to make all Jeep axles but not for the WK. I like the cover but agree its too expensive.

Because GM corporate and AAM make axles that are actually named 10 bolt, 12 bolt, 14 bolt etc and it confuses people.

Alright you rebel rousers - XJ section ---------------------->



The 10 bolt/12bolt thing is honestly a WK thing. Helps noobs distinguish between QuadraTracII and QuadraDriveII 4xsystems..............

I honestly clicked on this thread because I was confused about a 12 bolt being under a new Jeep haha! Like why would anyone swap that hunk of scrap into a brand new Grand Cherokee?

Rebel rouser? Pun intended because of my user name? 😆

I must agree with the 10-12bolt comment. Hows about we just teach people to call it what it is? C213RE or C213R. E for electric/QDII.

Also, blown7, it's not a D44 at all. It's actually variation of a Chrysler 8.25

The price is a little high, but NOBODY makes a 12 bolt for the XK or WK so someone has to pay all the upfront production costs.

Well lets step back here a minute,,,

I know for a fact my SRT8 has a BIG Dana 44..
some of the other small axles are just well small...........

Here from WKJEEPS

3.07:1 axle ratio (with V6 and Quadra-Trac I)
3.55:1 axle ratio (with V6 and Quadra-Trac II)
3.73:1 axle ratio (Dana 44, with V8 and CRD engines)
The last one is what I'm talkin about..A 8.9 inch ring gear Dana 44

So now when somebody says on this forum 12 bolt that means nothin...
