Dana 30 3/8" Differential Cover

This is our basic differential cover, we see it as the only one worth making. The D30 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 D30 axle is actually a pretty good axle for its size if you don't get carried away with too big tires.

  • Ring is 1/2" and the cover is 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.

The differential cover is a 1 piece 3/8" (.375") plate steel cap bent 8 ways then welded to a 1/2" ring, we had to make it thicker to make enough room for the thickness of the cover, it just happens to make it 30% stronger too! The fill plug is a generous 3/4" ID for easy fill and oil level check. This is arguably the strongest diff cover made for a Dana 30 axle.

We manufacture this and all of our covers out of A50 plate steel, that's 50,000 PSI tensile strength. After welding, the mounting surface is machined absolutely flat for a perfect fit! This is for a fully welded D30 differential cover with fill plug ready to plug and play.

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.

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.
