        ARB Dana 44 Diff Cover ..

        Just replaced my front and rear differential cover w/ the ARB cover .. These things are built like a tank .. At least 5 times thicker than the original .. They fit flawlessly and were a breeze to install all .. The only issue I ran into was you need a pump to get the diff fluid back in the differential due to the upper clearance of the Jeep Wranglers .. Am seriously impressed w/ my new ARB covers ..

        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.

        ARB differential covers, front and rear

        Very strong and can take a beating. It’s better than the terraflex. I know the terraflex geeks want the name. Research shows why. Easy install.

        4 2006 Wrangler Unlimited - Edvargas

        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

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

      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.
