Chrome Diff cover - front

Hey guys, looking to get a Chrome Diff cover for the front diff.

What are the things I should know? Mine would be a Dana 60 right?

There seem to be different styles out there, some with drain plugs, some without...

I had bad luck with a chrome diff cover. Mine started to rust in less then a year. I replaced it with an aluminum one that is much easier to maintain.

2001 - 14" OUO 525 - 38x15.5x20 Toyo & 20x12 Weld Cheyenne's. Hybrids, 38R, BTS, Spearco, Terminators..
