Shipping was 5-6 days which is to long for Prime Delivery. When item finally did arrive the mating surfaces of the diff cover (where it joins to differential housing had a marred surface with gouges and scratches. This is the most important and functional surface of the diff cover and should be smooth like glass. Scratches, not to mention gouges on this surface means it may not seal correctly to the housing and cause your diff fluid to leak out.

The drain plug magnet insert on this cover was very weak compared to the stock cover that it replaced. Also, raw edges of metal throughout on inside half of cover around drain plug threads, bolt holes, and from gouges scrapes in cover. All these surfaces should be ground and polished clean so no metal fragments can become loosened and float around inside your differential potentially causing catastrophic damage. Did my best to grind and polish the mating surface and frayed metal edges prior to installing, but should not have had to rehabilitate and refresh a new part. Also, installed the old magnet from the cover I was replacing since the one on this cover offers little to no confidence it would do its job.

Very disappointed Overall. Expected more from what I thought was a name brand OE part. Have a feeling this may be a Chinese knock off or counterfeit part. I should have sent back, but had to install as I needed my truck operating. Been installed for 1 day and so far no leaks but will be checking for leaks everyday.

Do not buy, choose another.

I purchased this Dorman rear diff cover for my 2004 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500. It came with a nicer gasket than I was expecting, so I ended up using it and saving the other gasket I had purchased separately. I cleaned the cover really well, put four coats of Rustoleum Professional black enamel spray paint on it over the weekend, then I installed it with ARP stainless 12-point bolts and filled the differential with 2+ quarts AC Delco full synthetic 75w-90 gear/axle oil. It looks really good and the Eaton G-80 locker operates more smoothly and quietly with the synthetic oil. It did have a drip leak from the fill plug, which did have the washer installed, so I tightened it a bit more (less than half a turn) and so far, no more drips.

Fit my 2006 GMC Sierra Rear Diff perfectly. I choose to use a gasket I purchased from Amazon with this instead of RTV or Form-a-Gasket. The drain plug (nice feature with magnet on end of screw) threaded port had a major burr on the inside that i need to grind off in order to eliminate risk of loose burrs falling off and getting into gears... This part is thick. I replaced my original cover as it had corroded so badly that the gear oil was seeping out. Had similar corrosion issues with brake lines, shackles, and misc brackets. Northeast salt (Urea) kills the low carbon steels used for those parts once the barrier (paint/undercoating) wears off. Just put it on so, time will tell. Also, the coloration of the part is more matte than shiny. I like it better with the dull flat finish. Hole pattern was perfect.

I bought this for my 2000 GMC Yukon Denali, as the previous diff cover was rusted through and leaking. I ordered this, a Felpro gasket (Fel-Pro RDS55028-1 Rear Axle Housing Gasket) and 4 quarts of Diff Fluid (Mobil 1 104361 75W-90 Synthetic Gear Lube - 1 Quart (Pack of 2)). I only ended up needing a little over 2 quarts of diff fluid, but its always nice to have extra. I used RTV (J-B Weld 31314 High Temperature RTV Silicone Gasket Maker and Sealant - Red - 3 oz.)) to help seal the gasket, and loctite (Loctite Heavy Duty Threadlocker, 0.2 oz, Blue 242, Single) on the fill cap, and have not seen any leaks yet, and trust me, I have been looking after reading other reviews.

You have to paint it (I bought a can of spray primer and red spray paint and NAPA and it turned out great). The fill cap is a T-50 Hex Bit by the way, that should save you some fumbling around in the tool box.

Edit: almost two years after installing, this diff cover is still holding up well.

I had a coworker say he really liked the look of black with stainless hardware. The downside is that now I gotta paint the whole axle, the rust is a bit more obvious when right next to the fresh paint.

This is a great rear diff cover. I didn’t like that it had a drain plug. But for the price. It can’t be beat. I noticed a lot of people complaining about their drain plug leaking. So I definitely can see why that would happen. The drain plug on mine WAS NOT tight. It was a little bit. But not tight enough to prevent a leak. So before installing it, tighten the drain plug as much as you can. Other than that, its a nice cover that I’m sure will last a very long time.

This cover fits my 2004 Chevy Tahoe 5.3L perfectly. It didn''t come with a gasket, but I ordered a Fel-Pro anyways. That being said the only issue I''ve encountered, which others have too, is the drain plug. I snugged it down tight prior to installation but there was still seepage aftwards. I removed the plug and put teflon tape on it, tightened it up and now there is minimal dripping, but it still persists. Although I haven''t lost a ton of gear oil it''s still annoying that I''m having trust issues with the fill plug. If it gets annoying enough I may just put some Gear Oil RTV on the threads and let it cure.

Heavy built. *(No gasket with it)
Reviewed in the United States on January 20, 2019
The cover seems to be well made. It is rather heavy. It does have some loose metal burrs around the plug housing I will need to brush or grind off but no big deal. ** After reading the reviews and Q&A I assumed it came with a gasket but it did not.

Perfect fit for my 2004 Sierra 10 bolt. The cover is just bare steel so you will need to prime/paint it to make sure it doesn''t rust. -Bolt size for my 2004 was M8-1.25×25 (plus new washers) as I did not reuse the OEM bolts. -I torqued the bolts in a criss-cross pattern, starting at 15 ft/lbs, then to 20ft/lbs, then finished at 30 ft/lbs. -I used a new Fel-Pro gasket, no sealant or RTV. No leaks. The only downside I can think of is the fill plug. It has what looks to be a magnet in the middle of the plug, but it isn''t very strong. Overall very happy with the product.
