Yukon Gear Axle YHCC-D44 Black Hardcore Differential Cover

Yukon Gear Axle YHCC-D44 Black Hardcore Differential Cover:at our store, we stock over 2000 models, so if you see the manufacturer, but not the model, don't be shy - give us a call and we will be happy to check! I put this diff cover on my GMC K2500 4wd pickup.First off, I bought this because I'm an idiot and while doing the last drain and fill on my differential, I managed to dislodge the glued in magnet at the bottom of the differential housing, so I was on the hunt for a diff cover that had magnetic drain and fill plugs to make up for this misdeed. You can see I just stuck a big magnet on the old cover with the 'before' picture, it worked, I guess I didn't need the cover but hey I have it now!Second, Yukon is /TOTALLY WRONG/ on their website, my truck is a 98' and they said it took 3/8" bolts so that's the one I ordered without double checking, its totally wrong, trust me, you want M8-1.25, 25mm length! You can see in the pictures that I had to go get different bolts and some washers. I actually like the look of the black steel bolts with the polished washers behind them more than the shiny stainless hardware Yukon provides.Third, there's really no provision for factory brake line mounts, you'll need one 30mm+ bolt to re-hang the brake line distribution block. Yeah yeah, I get it, its a cover for /hard core 'bro-dudes' in bro-dozers/ and brakes are for suckers and losers but I'm just saying that a cast in indent on one of the top bolt holes would be great for sinking a brake line tab into and it'd make the install on any vehicle look that much cleaner.Fourth, the drain and fill ports are just straight threaded holes with big grub screws and there's two kinda silly design flaws with that: There's no sealing surface other than the threads first off, the grub screws don't seat against anything, they don't have flanges with O rings or crush washers, its /going/ to seep oil past those threads and thats stupid so I put gas-line Teflon tape on the threads. Second, the heads of the grub screws are allen key hex, WHY? Why not just a 3/8" square just like the fill port on the input side of the diff!? That's just silly and annoying.The interior design of the cover seems to promote the same fluid paths as the original stamped steel cover and that's good, its not a flat back design that's just going to whip up the oil into a froth, partially why I bought it.I used a Lubelocker gasket, the mating surface on the cover is rough cast so I doubt you'd have much luck at all using any of the paper gaskets, if you are one of those sorts of person that smears RTV all over... look, you do you but that isn't me.My truck is used for towing and hauling, 80% of the time its hooked up to a trailer, 10% of the time its full of stuff in the bed, the other 10% of the time its making a mad dash for the gas pump because its a big block with 4.10 gears. I didn't buy the cover because I go offroad, or because I thought it'd provide extra cooling or capacity, I'm sure its wishful thinking to imagine it'd make the housing stiffer too, I bought it because it was one of the only covers for a 14 bolt GM with a curved interior for proper lubrication channeling and magnets.Does it look cool? Oh totally, this thing looks awesome, that's why people buy these things usually, I'm sure its tough, I weighed it, was 19.3lbs as delivered without any hardware, 21lbs with the hardware.Should you buy it? Sure, why not, it ran me $144, the Lubelocker gasket was $30, and 4 quarts of full synth 75w140 was about $60, all in it was $234 for a pretty average 'install' with all supplies except for time and tools accounted for. Do you have $250ish dollars to spend and do you want to bling out your truck or do you keep bashing stock diff covers and denting or breaking them open? Sure, buy it, but also please get a spotter or something and stay off the rocks jeez...4 stars for being wrong and having really obvious and simple to resolve design deficiencies. Correct the info, seat or seal the drain and fill ports, create a brake distribution block provision?, machine the mating surface seriously what why did you not do this? Oh also please stop painting the inside of stuff that holds oil and gets hot, that paint could flake and fail at some point and your gears and bearings are going to be displeased if that happens.Who knew so much could be said and so much could be gleaned from a differential cover, a non-moving but very important part of a far more complex component.under blast sales,boston mall,finally resale startYukon Gear Axle YHCC-D44 Black Hardcore Differential Cover
