Mag Hytec front D60 cover?

Is the Mag-Hytec cover for the front Dana 60 a good idea or is it more of a solution in search of a problem? I'm coming up on my next service interval and if the MH cover is worth the (considerable) expense, now would be the most convenient time to get it.

Unless you do a whole lot of four wheeling, I'd pass on it.

Thanks, I was leaning the same way. Already this service, with me doing all the work myself, is probably going to wind up costing right around $400 (new Redline synthetic fluids in EVERYTHING, new filters every place I have one, etc...) so avoiding another $200+ expense is a good thing.

I have that cover on mine and if I had it to do over, I would save the money.. The way it is built to work on a Super Duty, you don't really gain anything from it. It hardly holds any more fluid that the stocker.

It doesn't even have a cosmetic advantage to it, since the fins are only above the steering gear and can't be seen unless you are either under the truck or have a lift...

The only advantage I see to it is, I will never have to remove that cover again to change the fluid since it has a drain hole in the bottom.....

I've managed to talk myself out of a Mag-Hytec cover and into ONE OF THESE. It's good-looking, stupidly strong, and if the quality of my hub conversion is any indicator it's very very high quality. Also, the Dynatrac cover splits the difference (a little unevenly) between the $$$ for a MH cover and the functional but "blah" looking stocker so that's not too bad.
