Superior Protection. ARB's Differential Cover is designed using advanced computer technology to create a cross brace support that assist in transferring energy and provides additional structural support to your axle. This design incorporates angled surfaces to maximize approach angles and ensure protection of your differential's critical internal components. This Differential Cover will give you full peace of mind when traversing any terrain.

Heavy Duty Construction. ARB manufactures their Differential Cover from high tensile nodular iron for superior strength and long lasting durability. To prevent rust and corrosion due to the elements, this Dana 44 Differential Cover is completed in a bright red powder coated finish. Both the drain plug and dipstick feature high power neodymium magnets to check for tell-tale signs of internal damage.

Direct Bolt-On Installation. ARB designed their Differential Cover to be a direct bolt-on upgrade for your Wrangler’s factory differential cover. With the included hardware this Cover can be installed in about an hours’ time.

Recommended Upgrade. When changing your differential cover it is recommended to upgrade to fresh gear oil at the same time.

Do these fit on a stock Jeep Sport axle?

JamesP

  • Thank you for your question! This will fit on all Dana 44 differentials. Most rear differentials on the Sport models are Dana 44's, but there are some exceptions that came with rear Dana 35's. I would recommend checking the differential to make sure it is in fact the 44. The easiest way to identify it is by it's shape. The Dana 44 is shaped more like a stop sign, and the Dana 35 is shaped like an oval.

Are these compatible with a 4.88 gear ratio?

Do you sell gaskets to go along with this? Standard Dana 44's on 2016 stock Rubicon HR edition...

TimE

  • At this time we do not offer differential cover gaskets for the Dana44. These can be sourced at a local parts store. We recommend Fel-Pro gaskets due to their proven track record.

Just wondering how thick the metal is on the arb diff cover Dana 44? Also, I'm running stock axel housings with G2 axels front and rear, with synergy axel assurance kit up front. Will these ARB differential covers work with my set up? Thanks for your time.

RichardS

  • The ARB Dana 44 is cast nodular iron, allowing this to have a varying thickness to reinforce areas where more integrity is needed, and remain thinner where it is not. This will have no issues working with your setup.

How do I know what rear end I have in my 97 tj

GregM

  • Your TJ either came with a Dana 44 or Dana 35 rear axle. We have an axle identification guide here: http://www.extremeterrain.com/wrangler-jeep-axle-identification.html to help you determine which axle you have.

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.

    Outstanding engineered design

    I originally had Dana Spicer covers which had a tell-tale hole when you reached the right level of oil in the diff, however once I researched the amount of engineering that went into these ARB covers along with the design, I Had to have them and they are exactly what I wanted. Strongly recommend you look into these if you want quality craftsmanship.

    ARB Diffs

    I ordered the ARB Air Lockers for my 2014 Dragon Edition (AKA JKU Sahara). I decided that since I was going to have the covers off anyway, why not upgrade the covers at the same time. Boy am I glad I did. They look great, the fit perfect (recommend Lube Locker reusable rubber gaskets) and the added protection can't hurt either, not to mention the cool factor of 10. People have already commented on them. Can't wait to get 'em muddy on the trails.

    Review from ARB Dana 44 Differential Cover - Black (87-18 Wrangler YJ, TJ & JK)

    ARB D44 Diff Cover

    This cover is a huge upgrade from the stock stamped sheet metal cover. I peeled the factory cover back on a rock this season and replaced it with this cover. Very heavy duty and high quality. I also used a lube locker for no leaks. It seems to hold about the same amount of gear oil as the factory - maybe a little more but only by a couple of oz. Just buy it and don't look back. BTW - ET did a great job getting my order to me.

    Solid piece

    Ordered and recieved this diff cover in a matter of a few days, and upon opening the box i was truly impressed. Comes with replacement hardware and of course a monster differential cover. Not only is it sturdy but also very heavy for its size. Only negative is it did not come with a replacememt gasket or sealant.
