        Will this cover fit the front Dana 44 axle on my 05 Rubicon without having to modify the track bar or steering components?

        • Hello, yes this will fit on the Dana 44 differential. You should not run into any clearance issues with the track bar or steering components.

        Purchased a set of the ARB Dana 44's recently from ET. Can you advise what the recommended torque spec in FT LBS is for a 13' JKU. Do not see a reference in the instructional material. Thanks

        • For Dana 30, 35. and 44 differentials the UNC Cap Screws must be torqued to 34.5Nm (25.4 ft-lb).

        I have Dana 44 axles on my '14 JKU Rubicon, but I've heard these covers will not fit with stock diff locks (which I have as well). Can anyone confirm?

        • The ARB Dana 44 Differential Cover are compatible with the stock differential lockers on the Rubicons.

        I know these are supposed to fit nearly all Dana 44 differentials. I just want to know for sure if it will fit a 2018 Wrangler JL Rubicon. Will it?

        • Unfortunately, we have not test fitted these covers to guarantee fitment for the 2018 JL wranglers. While it may fit the JL properly, we would not be able to guarantee the fitment. We apologize for the inconvenience.

        The description states "does not work with aluminum Dana 44 Housings". I am not able to use a magnet as I don't have access to the jeep at this time. is there another way to tell which material I have. 2016 JKU Rubicon Hard Rock edition. Thanks in advance.

        • Your JKU Rubicon does not feature the aluminum Dana 44 Housing, so the ARB Dana 44 Differential Cover will work with your set up.

            Had to match!

            I have been looking for a after market Dif for at least 12 months. It finally was what I would say meant to be. I moved from PA to AZ and when we got here the front dif was leaking and I had to replace the seals. So why not just up grade them when the dif cover is already off. Then about a month later the rear started leaking. It was meant to be. So I had to match and replace the back to match.

            Ready for the rocks!

            Looks great and works great too. Easy install on our 2016 JK Rubicon Hard Rock with 3” Metal Cloak lift and Dana 44 axles. Peeled back the stock dif covers on 3 occasions causing oil leaks and had to repair. So decided to get these for the front and back and hopefully not have to worry about it again. Vulnerable spot on rocks as it is the lowest spot. Took it out last weekend and did scrape the front one. No issue! These things are solid!

            Great Protection!

            Great purchase, it protects the ring gear well. I had a 79’ CJ5 that had stock diff cover, a hard slide on a rock caused the cover to dent in enough to rub on ring gear, a leak took place and ended up replacing axle later. Put these on my JKU to prevent this and so far they have done a great job. Already I’ve rubbed the front one and there is no worries!

            Great looking

            This is one heavy duty diff cover. It is also great looking! I will be putting one of these on my front axle when I get the chance. The magnets on the dip stick and drain plug are very strong. My rear diff took less oil to fill with this cover. I have heard some people say their axles took more or less oil than than expected. So make sure you mark the dip stick and check while filling.

            Near perfect

            Love the look and how sturdy it is Only complaint is the filler can be dificult ro reach on my jeep lj the gas tank skid can get in the way. Also wish it had a full hole on side like oem I like the top filler but the oem fill till spill method is easier than the dip stick. Small complaint i still love it and would buy it again

            The cover

            I Got drunk and thought I would test this out with an ice pick the night before I put it on. The ice pick did not damage the cover - did not dent it - but it did put a chip in the paint, obviously. Now No one needs to test theirs with an ice pick. All In all It is very solid. Dipstick is nice. Red looks good.

            5 2013 Rubicon - JoeG Installation Time: Afternoon

            Great upgrade for your Jeep

            Pretty straight forward installation. I used Permatex RTV gasket maker and cleaned the gears with brake cleaner. Don't tighten the bolts too tight. I did 10-15 min set up, then finger snug for an hour, then 10 FT LB for an hour and then 25 ft lbs final torque....working fine. I did 1.5 qts front and 2.5 qts rear using75-90 Royal Purple gear oil. Mark the dipstick with a small file after putting the oil in as you know the amounts are correct. Also let the vehicle sit for at least 24 hours if you use gasket maker so it cures BEFORE adding the oil.
