Is aluminum mandatory? All the fabricated ones I see are steel. PMF, Revolution Gear, Ballistic. The only aluminum one I know of is the cast aluminum Dana 80 cover made by Dana Spicer.

I searched all the aftermarket covers out available out there I could find and bought these the nodular iron Dana Spicer aftermarket ones but I may have bought the last Dana 60 one in the country. https://www.summitracing.com/parts/s...SABEgJtUPD_BwE 10023537 Spicer Dana 80 Rear Nodular Iron Differential Cover

How bad do you want them, and how soon. I bet brother Ed could fix you up.

Not interested in heavy 3/8" thick steel covers. I have chromed stocker covers now.

Seen the fabbed steel ones. Why not aluminium?

I think they're always steel because the goal is for impact strength since they're mainly use is for offroading. I don't know fabricating or material pricing so I don't know of cost of material or aluminum welding comes into play too.

Well, we could do it. If you have a design in mind, let me know, you have my number(s) otherwise, we'd start from the flange and build from there.

I could make you one out of aluminum foil since they aren’t really going to be “used”...
