Dana 70 vs. 70HD vs. 80 diff cover.

I'm wanting to get an after-market diff cover for my dana 70HD, I was wondering if it is the same cover as a Dana 70 or possibly a Dana 80 because I cannot find a clear cover listed for the HD. Thanks.

RE: differential cover

I have a Dana 70HD in my '06 MH and it takes the same cover [i.e.,a Mag- HyTek] as my '01 Dodge Ram 2500's Dana 80. Trouble with the cover in the MH was sway bar/gas tank interference, so I kept the OEM one instead. The Mag HyTek cover offered an additional 4-5 qts gear lube capacity which would have been nice -- if the cover fit!

So the bolt pattern is the exact same between the 70HD and 80? Just want to make sure before I order a cover. Thanks

While we're on the subject of d70s, how can i tell what kind of d70 is in my truck? I don't know if it's a basic d70, or d70u or what. It's an '83 f250 4x4.
