Have you guys thought about the aftermarket Maghytec diff cover? it is costly but it has a dip stick, a magnetic drain plug, and a built in bung for temperature sensor if you want to install one. It would be a snap to change oil with this diff cover.
Yes fill until the oil runs back out.
Those maghytec covers are great but they're like $260+ and who really needs a dip stick? If its not visibly leaking oil then theres really no rerason to check it.
A good alternative is the factory aluminum cover on the 08-up trucks, they bolt right on to ours and are only about $60
