Dynatrac diff cover installed

I finally got my Dynatrac front differential cover installed today and IMO it's pretty spiffy. Normally a diff cover isnt' anything you'd think much about but since I was going to take my old cover off for this service interval I figured I might as well put something on that's improved over stock. Overall it was a pretty simple job but I did have to grind a tiny bit out of the edge to clear the inner u-bolt on the driver's side spring pack and that held me up a bit since I never bought a new Dremel tool after smoking my old one (literally, it was screaming hot and smoke was coming out of it) and had to wait for Mrs. JV to come home from work and drive me to Home Depot for a new one. Once I got the edge ground out the cover went right on and I refilled the diff with some Redline 75W90.

Like all the Dynatrac parts I've seen (I have their Free-Spin hub conversion kit) it seems to be very high quality and should hold up a good long time so I'm pleased. On a side note--I used 3 quarts plus a tiny little bit of fluid (spilling a couple tablespoons in the process) so that should be the correct amount of fluid, right? The owner's manual says 2.7 liters and 3 quarts plus a smidge is right around that amount, if I've done my arithmetic correctly.

Here's a shot of how much I had to grind off the edge of the cover:



Here's a crappy cellphone pic of the cover installed--my truck only has a leveling kit for the front suspension and I didn't need to re-clock the front axle so the tie rod runs right across the center of the cover.

If you ask me 75w90 is to light even if it is the front. It does look nice though.

Looks good!

It sucks you had to grind off material, hopefully that doesnt cause a problem down the road.

Lemme guess--you'd recommend something heavier from Amsoil?
