    Different allright. At least you can check you fluid level at a glance.

    Sounds cool enuff but the only thing that would concern me is bumping it on a rock and dumping out the fluid. A stamped steel cover isnt very strong but at least it wont break, itll bend.

    actually if you go to the link and click on pictures there is a movie at the bottom and it shows a guy hitting it with a sledge hammer and it just bounces off and dosen't do anything so it might acutally be strong.

    I didnt see the AVI link the 1st time around. /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif

    Still, smacking it w/ a sledge is different than a 5000 lb rig hitting a 10000 lb rock.

    Just my opinion, I think its cool lookin, but I dont know if I would trust it 10 miles from nowhere.

    They do look really cool, but I would also be affraid of putting a hole in it on a rock. If I had a street only rig or show rig this would be a sweet piece for it, but on a trail truck I would think it would scratch, and or get holes threw the cover. I think i will stick with stock steel. Not to mention I already paid for the stock steel cover, and don't have the money or desire for a piece like this.
