AEV 10404005AB Differential Cover for 07-18 Jeep Wrangler JK with Dana 44 Axle

Quadratec Part #: 16500.3210
AEV Part #: 10404005AB

If proving your Jeep’s® mettle on rough terrain is what you’re after, beefing up the protection on your differential shouldn't go overlooked. Designed specifically for ‘07-18 Jeep® JKs equipped with Dana 44 axles, AEV has produced a seriously rugged cover to protect all the guts in your front OR rear differentials. Immediately you’ll notice the rugged, yet still stylish, finish. AEV applies both an e-coating and powder coating to maximize durability and hold up against scrapes, scratches, and everyday wear-and-tear.

Since this cover can fit a front or rear Dana 44 it features two fluid level ports; one for the front axle and one for the rear. They take out the guesswork when topping off fluid and are located on the cover per factory fill-level specifications. Another feature AEV has added to their JK diff cover is an oversized fill port. So if there’s a point on the trail where a little maintenance is required, the port makes it easy to add fluid as well as see inside to inspect for damage.

* WAIT! - When installing, be sure to use either RTV silicone sealant or a gasket. Also, make sure you remove any sealant residue or gasket material from the previous cover before mounting. AEV uses RTV silicone on all of their in-house differential cover installations. RTV silicone and gasket not included with AEV 10404005AB.


Made exclusively for ’07-18 Jeep® equipped with Dana 44 axles.

Front and rear axle compatibility, dual fluid level ports, oversized fill port, and magnetic drain plug offer convenience and practicality.

High-strength nodular iron construction with rugged and stylish e-coated and powder coated finish.
