Dana 30 3/8" Differential Cover

The Dana 30 came in a few different trucks but it primarily came in Jeeps, from the Jeepster in the late 60's, through most of the CJ5, CJ6, & CJ7 years, throughout all of the different Wrangler variations (YJ & TJ), Cherokees (XJ), and of course the early Broncos. The Dana 30 axle is actually a pretty good axle for its size if you don't get carried away with too big tires.

Our covers are crafted from A50 plate steel with a 50,000 PSI tensile strength, so this cover is tough, it's a fortress of steel, specifically crafted to handle the intense demands of rock crawling. The 1 piece 3/8" (.375") plate steel cap is bent 8 ways and welded to a 3/8" ring, making it virtually indestructible compared to the 1/4" caps used by our competitors.. And after welding, the mounting surface is machined perfectly flat for an unbeatable fit.

But what does all this mean for you? It means you can tackle any obstacle on the trail with confidence, knowing that your differential is protected by a cover that can handle the the most grueling conditions. Whether you're tackling the Rubicon, or tearing through Johnson Valley, this cover is built to withstand it all.. And with easy installation, this cover is a no-brainer for any serious rock crawler. So don't settle for a weak differential cover - get the one that's up to the challenge!

  • We're so confident in the quality of our products that we offer a LIFETIME GUARANTEE on all of our differential covers.
  • Ring and cover are 3/8" thick
  • Plate steel cover bent 8 ways
  • Machined absolutely flat for a perfect fit
  • All seams fully welded inside and out
  • Optional bolt kit comes with (5/16) 12 point bolts with washers

One of the questions we get regularly is about the tie rod clearance, it is ~3/4" and it clears all of the D30 axle setups we have encountered.

Super beefy
Jacob Stuart (SC) | January 18th, 2022
Been running this cover for a few months now and its ways a good feeling knowing that your diff cover is stronger than the axle it’s on so you have nothing to worry about haha.
Great products, great service...

This is my second diff cover from Ruffstuff and I have yet to be disappointed. I had a few questions and their customer service folks were helpful and responsive. Their diff covers are no joke - I can tell you I won't be worried about my diff cover on the trail...

I really thought I knew what I was purchasing but this thing is way beefier than I expected. The welds, just wow. Beautiful piece. It’s a shame it’ll be covered in power steering fluid and dirt most of the time.
Definition of Strong

Got this after I got the cover for my Chrysler 8.25. Again, really impressed with the strength and the welds look perfect. My diff covers are now bulletproof!

These diff covers are so beefy it's insane! I expected the quality to be good based on what I read in the forums, but it is actually well beyond my expectations. I'm glad to find armore, and strength for the diff in one piece!
