This is awesome! Maybe we could convince bushwhacker to make Fender flares for our trucks...or do they? Anywhoo, this truck is very fine indeed!

Finally got the Mag-Hytec diff cover installed.



Very easy. Unbolt the factory cover using a 1/2 socket. Clean off any gasket material and such.

Bolt the supplied hex head bolts and torque to 16 lb-ft in a criss cross pattern. Be sure to lube the o-ring with some clean fluid.



Fill with lube of your choice. I have always like Mobil1 stuff. - Don't forget the friction modifier! You need 6 bottles of lube and 2 bottles of friction modifier for this cover. It is super easy to fill too, it has a fill hole on the top.



And a drain hole on the bottom.



Check the fluid level with the supplied dipstick.



Also installed a thermocouple for the diff. temp gauge.



Be sure to recheck bolts and fluid after 25 miles.

I've seen those on a lot of trucks in SoCal....I haven't personally looked too much into them because was deterred by the price, but is there really a functional side to getting them instead of the "bling" look they give?

They are stronger than the stamped steel factory ones. Extra fluid should reduce temps, easy maintenance thats about it. I tow heavy and run hard so I am hoping to get my rear axle temps down some.

7.3 Monster is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
Question

archtaan, do you remember how much it cost you to do the 2010 front end conversion? I like the 2010 more than the 2005 .
