Extended Capacity Differential Cover

So I'm about due to change my differential oil and am considering changing out the stock differential cover on my '04' 2WD F250 to an aluminum alloy extended capacity cover while I'm at it. The one I've heard about is the Mag-Hytec, which appears to be a premium cover-- at least it's price suggests it is. Would appreciate feedback from ya'll with experience and any alternate covers that may work just as well.

Dont have one on my ford yet however had one on my chevy. If you like the idea of adding fluid capacity to your diffs, and the fact there is a drain plug and a dip stick then go mag hytech. I will be putting one on the front, rear and trans when the $$$$ allows.

Rear only and it saves you like $200. Simple solution and keeps money for other mods.
