    My job does have its advantages...

    Here are some pictures of the new Diff Skid Covers Warn is coming out with right now. The covers will be available in Polished Stainless Steel & Black Powdercoat. Each of them are made from 3/16" material.

    The covers will be available for Dana 30, Dana 35, Dana 44, Dana 60, AMC 20, & Ford 8.8 style axles.

    There are no plans for a 14 bolt cover yet - but I'm trying! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif (Everybody call the Warn Customer Service line and start requesting Chevy stuff!)

    These are pre-production shots - so the actual product may vary from that shown below...

    These pictures are of the Dana 44 in Polished Stainless Steel

    Also - Steve wanted me to mention that Warn Industries products are available through Off-Camber 4x4

    Those look sweet! What's the pricing going to be like? Can we get a CK5 volume discount? Need any field test vehicles that are incredibly heavy and can seriously stress the new covers? /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    Pricing is in the range of $80-$90 for Black and $128 - $144 for Stainless Steel. I can't speak to CK5 volume discounts

    Testing was a necessity - but we had no shortage of employee volunteers /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    [/ QUOTE ] Dang! I was hoping that you might need to test a Dana 44 cover in something much heavier than those Jeeps that always appear in Warn ads! /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    Those look almost like the ones I build,but not as beefy /forums/images/graemlins/ooo.gif

    They look cool but that 3/16 will not hold its shape long .Mine are .312+ and Burt4x4 bent his on the Rubicon

    That will depend on what grade of steel they're using. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    Look kinda FUFU. I like the big W in the center. Are they replacement for you existing or do they just cover over the old one??

    The black one looks pretty good. I would have to pass on that shinny polished one thou. Maybe powder coating would be a good ideal.

    I don't think they would be that good of replacement for your cover - as there are quite a few holes in them /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    We didn't test their fluid holding capacity without a cover. They bolt over your existing cover.

    Come on now - no bashing the Classic bumper - Those things are really a classic! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif We still build the crap out of them too!

    Not everyone is as hardcore as some of you guys. /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    I wonder how much mud and sticks you could get stuck behind it?

    Sorry but I have seen the top selling 4x4 mags bash that bumper. I think what the folks here are trying to say is. The metal could be a little thicker and that polish job is for the show trucks, which ain't to populer around these parts. If you came here looking for honest oppions then people will give them.

    I agree, I had one of those bumpers and it was worse than worthless. I think the ends are weaker than stock. Defiantly a show truck thing.

    My comment about the Classic Bumper was meant tongue-in-cheek. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif I can see how it might have been taken out of context.

    I expect honest opinions and feedback about everything I post on here.
