I bought this diff cover for my 2002 excursion because...
Design of cover helps keep gear oil cool
Has a magnetic dip stick
Easy drain at the bottom
Has built in o-ring seal
I have been running these on all my trucks since 1992. They look great ! Perform great !
And the quality is great !
This Diff Cover was a perfect fit. The old one was weeping fluid and the fluid that came out was gross. Took 6 quarts and went on smooth, perfect alignment.
Looks Great and install is easy as pie. Cover comes with everything you need for install minus your oil. Kit even had extra bolts/washers. Very satisfied with this product, vendor and supplier.
Well built heavy duty. I did however need to grind some material from the plate located between the spare tire and the fuel tank to ensure adequate clearance should the bed sag that far when I hook up the 5th wheel. I also found that filling to the advertised 6 quarts would way overfill above the fill access hole on the differential. A web search found the same concern from many others on the web. I ended up filling with 5 quarts. That put the level on the dip stick to midway between the lower and upper marks.
the process of removing the old differential cover was a bit of a deal as I did not have anything wide enough to catch the oil. After figuring that out part the rest was easy.
after emptying out the old oil I did a good cleaning of the diff. there was a lot of metal stuff in bottom of diff and I was able to get that sucked up with clean towels.
Installing the new cover I cleaned the old gasket off surface. The new bolts and supplied wrench make this a dream.
Have to say the amount of needed oil now almost doubled to 6 qts.. the cover look cool .
Highly recommend this cover.
