Greetings @camperman

OK, here's how I know the Mag cover starves the pinion:

Gale Banks said it in one of his videos therefore it must be true.

RyeThomas All these trucks that have stock covers with lots of miles tells me the only benefit of a cover is if it has a fill and drain hole so you donít have to pull the cover. Part of me says thatís lazy and you canít see whatís going on inside. So all Iíll say is Iíll keep the stocker, itís proven. Plus I donít want to advertise for any company unless they pay me royalties.

Wish the factory finned cover cover had a drain and fill cause Iím lazy, lol.

Iím not giving a dollar to Mr Banks. Guy would find a way to sell ice to an Eskimo.

Then add on the price of the cover. Then that's providing what the seller is claiming is accurate.

Like I said, I'll double my money, fold it in half and pocket it.
Considering my 3500 sees about 5000 miles per year and I'm already on my 3rd rear diff cover, I'm figuring it would take about 75 years for the Banks cover to pay for itself.

Obviously stock is never good enough. . .

$310.00 later they tell me it oil starves the pinion???


.

OK, So I throw another $295.00 more at it and I supposedly have the best of both worlds?



And all that Mopar diff oil aint cheap either!
Somebody loan me your VISA card. I can pay you back at $0.00697 per mile.
Promise!

KATOOM I think ol' Gale is full of crap... He a great talker and his marketing team is brilliant, but that doesnt change the fact that with all his YouTube video's about his new differential cover he never provided or proved any of theories he was holding other diff cover companies accountable for. I actually thought what he was saying could be considered as slander. Maybe those companies know that people who worship Banks will blindly accept everything he says no matter if he can prove it or not.
And now that Banks diff cover finally makes production they miraculously reveal all this "data" they claim was part of their testing. Whatever...

Hey, that amount is nothing to sneeze at. It's probably about what many unprepared hot shots earn per mile.
If they even make any money at all.

camperman Agreed, the covers look nice. I'll just double my money, fold it in half and put it in my pocket. I'm thinking that $697.00 savings in 100,000 miles is a mighty slow return.

Per Google: According to United States Department of Transportation Federal Highway Administration, Americans now drive an average of 13,476 miles per year. That's the most in history. Do the math and the average American drives well over 1,000 miles a month. Nov 1, 2018

There are those who have well over that kind of mileage on their trucks, but how many trade long before that?

I did a little math, well my calculator did. $697.00 divided by 100,000 miles comes out to $0.00697 cents per mile, using the above figures. If I figured right. Then add on the price of the cover. Then that's providing what the seller is claiming is accurate. Like I said, I'll double my money, fold it in half and pocket it.

SRich12 I like the Spacer kit offered but as far as the differential cover I will stay with my $150 AAM finned cover!!!

Put me on the pre-order list. . .

Dont forget - it will pay for itself at that price in a really short period of time - now carefully follow this quote -

"At $3.50 per gallon of diesel, Banks owners will save $251 in fuel for every 100,000 miles driven as compared to stock. Flatback owners will spend approximately $447 in lost fuel economy over stock, enough money to buy another diff cover. Those upgrading from a flat-back design to a Banks cover can will see a $697 savings in fuel economy over their next 100,000 miles."

Oh I'd say he's got just the right kind of marketing people on staff....
