    I know this is just my opinion, but I think they are overly priced. $225 for a 14bolt Diff cover to me is outrageous. Anyone else feel the same way?

    I can't imagine spending over $400 for a couple diff covers either! I figure there are a LOT of better places to spend that money.

    Yeah, I think so too.

    What about the ORU aluminum covers? At $169.95 per polished cover, you think thats high too!!! [​IMG]

    Yeah that does seem crazy to me... but do they come with a lifetime warrenty? Like no matter what they'll replace them? Still darn high but I see that in a way in case you are really good and denting them in on rocks and things like that.... But for $225 each they better come inside the house too and do my dishes and clean the bathrooms.... [​IMG]

    Well you also have to think about the high prices keeps most of us away and that in turn might cause them to lose big time business and possibly go out of business. Then what good is that lifetime warranty? Its no good :)

    What about this diff cover? It's expensive but I was considering it at some point and time if I get some extra cash! It's $65 cheaper and you know Moser will be around forever to honor the warrenty... <a target="_blank" href=http://www.moserengineering.com/moser_interior/products.asp?CatID=13>www.moserengineering.com/moser_interior/products.asp?CatID=13</a>

    I bet if you dropped em an email they could tell you if they were making a 14b one of not? I'd be interested in one as well for my rear 14b sf when I get it in... I already have harrassed them with 2 emails about axles shafts this weekend so I will not bug em quite yet on the diff! [​IMG]

    The most I'd ever spend for a diff cover is about $20 at a junkyard....don't care about the chrome and stuff.....

    Me too. I can't really see the benefit. All of us, especially that have upgraded our axles have stuff stronger than the manufacturer ever intended for our trucks anyway.
