    Ok, here I am finally able to pimp my stuff without Steve casting down his wrath on me. lol! Anyways, this is what I can do. I think everyone has seen my 14bolt covers. I build them entirely out of 3/8"s plate. They are heavy at around 20lbs or so. Not for those lookin to save weight. One thing I include in my covers that no one else (that I know of) does, is a drain plug. It is a recessed, hex head plug mounted at the bottom of the cover, sitting flush with the surface. No more messin with RTV and gaskets when ya want to change fluid. I also include 14 new allen head bolts to bolt the cover to your housing. New bolts are required because the the thicker flange won't allow the shorter stock bolts enough thread engagement. Allen head bolts because there is little room for a wrench or socket on a conventional bolt. Not enough clearance between the bolt head and the cover. Thats the biggest reason for including bolts. Makes your life easier.

    Here are a few pictures...

    Also, D60 cover very soon. I'm going to try to figure out a way to make a drain plug work on the 60 cover as well. Gonna take some thinkin to design something that won't get mangled from rocks and other trail stuff.

    In addition to the covers, I can make just the differential rings alone. I can make those for just about any diff you want. You can bolt these over your stock cover to prevent it peeling back, or for whatever reason ya want.

    If you're interested, the cost is $150 +$20 shipping.

    If interested, I can be reached through PM or Email. Email is Carpe_Diem76@sbcglobal.net.

    Thanks!:grin:

    I have some ideas for 60 covers floating around in my head right now, but nothing more than that yet. I WILL be doing some kind of 60 cover very soon...It seems there would be a pretty good demand for them. :)

    I can also weld your 14 bolt side and spider gears into a "Jethro-Locker". Doesn't harm the carrier at all. You could just pull it out and swap in a Detriot later down the road if you wanted to. The result is, for the most part, a "mini spool" for the 14b.

    This is the end result-

    The easiest way to do it would be for you to send me your entire OPEN carrier minus the ring gear. I'd weld it up, and send it back to you. $50 for me to do the work- you pay to ship it to me...I'll ship it back free of charge.

    Jethro-Lockt sticker included...

    Hey, would you be up for doing a custom Diff cover for an Eaton HO72?

    Nobody makes them and there may be a few other people here that would want one.

    The only trick to them is that they're perfectly round. So they could be troublesome.

    You'd corner the market if you made some, though! :D

    I can give you some pics and measurements if you want to try it.

    All I would need is an old stock cover and possibly a gasket to fab something up for that diff. :D

    I'm talking to a company about CNC laser cutting the rings for me. I will hear more from them on Monday. When I know what it's gonna cost me, I'll be able to come up with a selling price. I'll post up when I find out. :)

    Added updated pictures of the new design 14b cover. :D

    And it looks like the rings alone will be right around $45-$50. :grin:
