Well I saw last week that my rear sterling diff cover was beginning to pit and rust, So I figured it was a good time to put in some syn. gear lube and throw on some new diff covers, F&R. Pics of the fun.

Oh, and I also threw on some billet oil and fuel filter covers for some more bling factor.

No thanks, I used to live in Chicago for 24 yrs! I had to leave that mess... actually it does see mud once in a while. Albeit, not very often lol.

I like the front cover but the rear doesn't have any fill or drain access. If I was replacing covers that would be a requirement. having to pull the cover to change fluid sucks.

Actually I had painted over the rust about 2 days earlier so you can't see it in the pic :rofl:, then the diff covers came quicker than I thought, came out of Huntington Beach Cali. So, I just couldn't have parts sitting around....

The fill plug is actually on the axle case, top drivers side, but your right draining is a bit of a PITA without a drain plug. I had actually considered drilling and tapping one in. The Mag-Hytecs, have a drain in them, but everybody around here runs 'em so I just wanted to be a bit different.:nod:
