they both add a little volume to your capacity and help to keep the fluid cooler, but none of them are cheap

ya i know they have the capacity to add more fluids... seems like i've just always have had tranny problems with my truck. just had it redone in november so maybe the tranny one would be a good choice... plus they look cool

For the transmission your money would be better spent on upgrading your current cooler or an add on cooler to increase the cooling efficiency. The larger pan with cooling fins helps but will not give as much benefit as a cooler that cost 1/3 as much let alone the additional cost for extra fluid.

The differential covers help but again there are cheaper options that are just as effective. Unless you really want a cool dipstick and drain plug in the cover, the aluminum cover that is standard equipment on the 08 trucks can be had for less than $40. Even if you go fancy with SS bolts and such it will still cost less than $60. The aluminum cover has fins to help with cooling and the aluminum itself disipates heat faster than the stamped steel cover. It won't add any more capacity but unless you do extremely heavy towing on a regular basis that extra capacity doesn't do anything for you but cost an extra $25 to fill.
