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.

Ordered two different covers and had to call Riffstuff directly to ask if a machine did these welds. Cannot stress enough just how perfect and beautiful these beads were. Shop full of guys and some experienced welders just stared at the welds like a dirty magazine. THANK YOU RUFFSTUFF. Great quality all-around as well as customer service!

I use this diff cover as a battering ram... It is hands down the most beef I have added to my jeep in one short install. I am extremely happy with it and use it to it's fullest. It's perfect for those who use every bit of their Jeep to get over an obstacle. 11/10: Will buy again.

Built for war!

Just received this cover and the Dana 44 cover for my 2007 JK. Like the title says...they are built for war! I was surprised just how heavy these sucka's are. I'm also a welder and have been welding for a long time and these beads are just beautiful. Whoever did them did a kickass job. You could literally throw one of these at someone and it would probably take them out. I can't imagine denting one of these at all. If push comes to shove I think the rock is going to move or split under one of these. Nice job fellas...I'm sold on your products.
