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.

Heavy Duty!
Shannon Darnell (Susanville, CA, US) | January 25th, 2016
Ordered this 30 and a 44 and basically got them the next day as I'm in Ca. I'm not one to tear my stuff up just because I can. And being a gear head I despise those people. But I can tell you these are the EPITOME of heavy duty. When the world ends there will be 3 things left, Cockroaches, Keith Richards, and these Diff covers.. Pull the trigger on these, you wont be disappointed..

diff cover thats as strong as the rest of your axle housing

All material is 3/8" thick, well designed, dome for ring gear is made from one peice of steel, nice welds. My wish list would be to have an option for allen head bolts that are flush mount cone shape.

There's no comparison with ruffstuff's diff covers. Actually sold my "bombshell" cover when i bought this. Absolutely solid and really a work of art, not to mention no 11-teen-year-old skull on them. Shipping is awesome every time with these guys. Absolutely would buy again, and have for the other toys.
