Diff Cover

Changing up gears so that means new diff covers at the same time. I'm looking at these due to the price point but definitely noticing the lack of cooling fins as compared to the AFE units.

Then again, how much do those fins really work on the AFE- They are sinking the heat to the rear which, as I understand it and with how heat works, wont work well.



Any reason not to get the covers above? Looking for an aesthetic change mostly.

Fins, mass, and material. All are very important when it comes to cooling.

I can't comment on this one or others from personal measurements, but they are all things to consider.

I wouldnt run it. Its thick steel and doesnt have cooling fins all which contribute to higher temps.

Isn't the stock one on the rear finned aluminum? That looks like a step down from stock. I would go with magtec for the front and leave the rear as is.
