Thinking of adding a front and rear diff cover for my 2022 392. I think the front is M210 front and M220 rear…what covers do y’all recommend?
 
Anytime the subject comes up I recommend watching the series of Youtube videos Carl Banks did on diff covers. It gives you an idea of what to look for and what to avoid. As for what I recommend, my ARB diff covers are suppose to be delivered tomorrow.

Fantastic demo! Thanks for sharing! I plan to change the rear diff fluid before adding any protection/cover.

Great video.

Both front and rear are M220 (D44).
It will be helpful to clarify if the 392's front and rear diffs are both M220 or not. I too thought the front was M210. The reason I'm interested to clarify this is because I ordered the Next Venture diff skids and am waiting delivery of one M210 skid and one M220 skid. It would be really helpful to know if I ordered incorrectly. Thank you.

I stand corrected. I just looked into this further, it’s M210 in the front and M220 in the rear. Note you can also look this up on your cryptostickers build sheet.
 
I like the Dana covers too, here with rancho skids

Doesn’t look like the Dana/Spicer covers have a quick-drain port… Do the ARB covers have that? I’d like to change diff oil like on the JK’s.
 
The Dana cover does not, but 392s with build dates up through July 2021 (at least) still have the plug on the diff case (backside, not cover.) I think Jeep discontinued the plug later in 2021. the view from underneath on mine …. That’s the plug as seen through a hole in the rancho skid..

I ordered MetalCloak 220 rear and as per them the front diff is different the standard JL. They are making the front diff cover for the 392 but won’t release until mid September.
 
Reviving this thread. Want to add some protection to the front diff before I go wheeling in a few weeks. What diff covers are you all using? I have beefier aftermarket steering components and the falcon 2.2 stabilizer so am concerned about clearance issues, especially at flex. About to pull the trigger on the front and rear. Anyone running these? If so any clearance issues?

 
ARB
Always have, always will.
they’ve always endured a solid beating and have nice features making the servicing of the diffs a breeze.

From research both here, JL forums and elsewhere that’s what I have planned as well.
 
My only concern with ARB is with the clearance with the steering components I have. My falcon stabilizer is pretty close to the front dif as is, with the massive ARB cover I could see it running into it.

I’ve posted mine earlier but don’t see others use RuffStuff diff covers. 1/2” thick ring and 3/8” thick cover. Super heavy duty and machined perfectly with beautiful welding. Just a few coatings of clear paint. It also strengthens the axle I believe.
