I’m going with mag hytec from moes. Would have already gotten it but I’m waiting to go to his place of business in next few weeks. I have a ton of questions for him and would like to see about 20% off if I spend 2 grand in cash, and I’ve noticed the 3.92 gear went up 100 bucks on his website over night.. but to the point sorry , i am going with mag hytec without a doubt .

There are lots of options, the Chrysler 9.25" axle has been around since the 1970s and is not only used on the rear of the 1500s but the front axles of the HDs

I would stick with the stock unit or one that is shaped just like the oem one. It is shaped the way it is for a reason. it helps the oil flow over the gears inside better than the aftermarket ones.

Gail Banks of Banks Performance did a nice series of videos while he learned how the different shapes of the covers perform. It was very informative. We even had a thread discussing the videos and their info.

By the way, if you have any clearance issues with any rear differential cover & a Hellwig or other sway bar
You just add spacers to move the sway bar a bit further away from the cover

i see that they have not committed this guy yet :)

I agree. Gale Banks has done a ton of R&D on this subject - OEM shape works the best.
