    Hey All,
    I am looking for a D60 diff cover with the plates/reinforcements welded to the cover - not the tube type bolt on units.

    Also an NP 241 skidplate. Was someone making a crossmember skid?

    Please post up! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Thanks.

    Check out this months Petersens for a test of different D60 covers. Turns out the beefiest one (as in the axle housing will snap before it dents) is some crazy looking face on the cover. It's not a plate-rienforced type like you said, but its still beef (and is pretty unique). If I needed a better cover its what I'd get, but sand is pretty easy on diff covers /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    I am not sure how close the 241 and 208 are in size and dimension, but 4x4 Iron makes the 208 crossmember skidplate setup. I have one on my truck and it is sweet. A little pricey, but well worth it to keep the aluminum case safe.

    I have a thick military D60 cover for sale right now in the for sale section.

    4x4 iron also makes diff protection that can be added to any cover.

    The WMS are nice. Saw the gray ones in person last week at EJS but they are costly.

    Rons Custom shop sells his on ebay.

    I second MOO for diff covers! I've seen them perform... they are one of the toughest covers out there!

    I just beefed mine up with 1/4" plate. Turned out pretty nice.

    Are you in bizness Waxer? That is nice and what I am looking for.

    The MOO covers are awesome also.

    So I have ideas on the covers but am lacking t-case skid plate.

    I am PM'ing 4x4 Iron about it tho /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    One thing I like about MOO covers is they increase oil capacity which helps cool the gears. Not really needed for the front but my 14 bolt gets pretty warm going up the mountain highways. I got both MOO covers on mine that I installed last week. Each diff took 1 gallon of oil. Front 60 cover cleared my Rockrod with no problems. For a skid plate, I'd suggest 4x4 Iron.

    alright, look at your cross member long and hard, then goto your local pick and pull, and find a blazer\truck like yours, look at the coross member on the truck, if you see a cross memeber that looks like yours and has a skid plate on it, pull the skid plate off off, then get it, take the bolts with you too, i made the mistake and got a goofy skid plate, but it will work, its just goofy. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Thanks. And I do quite a bit a freeway driving so the extra fluid would help.....

    I do not want the stock skid - want something more substantial - like the 4x4 Iron units. But they don't have one for the 241..... Yet....? /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
