What, if anything, have you done to the cover on your 14 bolt? Is it nessecary, or does the stock one hold up?

the little bit that hangs down at the bottom should be trimmed to keep it from being peeled back by a rock.( and pleeze everybody, just say NO to the chrome covers!) <IMG SRC="smilies/puke.gif" border="0">

I cut about an inch off the bottom of my 14 bolt right to the lowest bolt hole. I did the same with the cover. Today I ripped the bolt out and peeled back the cover a bit to cause a leak. Soooooo, I am going to just cut a curved shape of 3/8" and drill it in the shape of the cover for the bottom 5 bolts and just bolt it there for extra stength. Otherwise, the cover is tough.

I recently bought a new dif cover and truss for my 12 Bolt rearend. I bought my parts from Steve Frisbie and they are very beefy. He also makes a dif cover for the 14 bolt rearend, made from 1/4" steel and makes a truss system for this axle as well. Check out the link above.

well i thought the stock one looked a little wimpy so i just started welding steel to it. i cut out some pieces to cover the spots i wanted. started welding and then heating the plates with the torch and forming ot to the cover. it worked out nice, was cheap, and it works. <IMG SRC="smilies/tongue.gif" border="0">
