Changed my rear diff oil and cover

This weekend I changed my rear diff fluid with royal purple 75W-140. I also took the chance to install a new diff cover. Cover cost me about $80 after I had it polished, I think it looks sweet and the rear seems a bit quieter/smoother with all 165,000 miles it just turned over.

Here are a few pics just for fun, and can anyone guess what brand cover it is, lol?
Off the truck-






On the truck-

Royal Purple is the way to go. I got that in the rear end, the transmission, and the oil of my trail rig, and that truck has never run better. Im going to start doing that in my F250 when she starts to age, she's barely 1yr and 3 months now, and she just turned 30K. My trail rig is at 96K(a hard 96K).

Yep! $30 finned cover straight from Ford hahaha I drilled a hole in the bottom and tapped it for a 1/4"NPT plug so now it even has a drain plug.
