Aftermarket Rear Diff Cover Suggestions

Getting ready to change out the rear diff fluid on my 2000 SD. I want to upgrade the cover to improve the function of the diff (more oil capacity, cooling capabilities etc)
Found the Mag Hytech cover and it looks great but wow! $250 is a tad steep for me right now.

Looking for suggestions on others that may be out there and still provide benefits yet a lower cost.

Thanks

if you are going to do this mod make sure to go to the local ace hardware and get new longer stainless steel bolts because the new style is thicker than the old stamped style

agreed on the longer bolts ad if u paint the cover use washers also
but no drain plug is "incorporated" into them

but they look cool painted black and then sand the fins /or polish the fins and paint then wipe the fins to expose the polished tops
