    I finally finished my cover after getting the new gears set up. I don't think I'll have to worry anymore about rock rash or damaging my gears.

    MaN, i'M DROOLING!!!!!! How could you do this too me!!!! Not to start a war or anything, but I'm kinda parshal to Waxer's design due to the fact that most of us clock out 14FF and once you do that, the bottom corner of the second one starts lowering your clearance!!!! Man that is a sweet design! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Thanks for all the compliments guys...

    Kidjethro, your cover looks like the master of BEEF. I like it. Definitely another route to go when making diff covers.

    I went through 2 sanding discs in the making of this cover.

    It's all angled in on the bottom, all the way around for that matter- You'd have to have the pinion pointing at the floorboard for the cover to hit the ground.. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    KidJethro I bet that took a wile to make how much more oil does it hold? and do all of yall use the stock bolts if so why? Do you really need the flanged bolt with the lock dig in thing on it or is a 3/8's bolt with a 5/16's washer fine? Also what grade bolts do yall use?

    Can't answer exactly how much more oil it holds cuase I havent finished the axle yet. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    As for bolts- The ones in the picture are some cheap ass ones I had layin around. When I bolt it on for good, it will be with stainless steel allen head bolts.
