    Default Differential Cover Protector

    Living Down Under we don't have access to a great deal of after market covers and the ones down here are big (180+ for a good one)
    So I have made up a couple of homemade one's from stock dana heavy duty cover we have down here on some tj

    drill out the filler hole (30mm )and then cut about 1/3 of the cover off





    Then spaced out the flat part with some 6mm flat and welded them up together and re-drilled them out

    This one is for my 44 and we made up two for 35



    And some ARB red paint and ready to fit
