I’m looking for one with a built in heater along with the transmission pan:( :stirpot:
That along with the optional automatic drain and refill.

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:shock:, 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.

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... :thumbsdown:

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??? :banghead:

OK, So I throw another $295.00 more at it and I supposedly have the best of both worlds? :confused013:



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

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 don’t have to pull the cover. Part of me says that’s lazy and you can’t see what’s going on inside. So all I’ll say is I’ll keep the stocker, it’s proven. Plus I don’t want to advertise for any company unless they pay me royalties.

Wish the factory finned cover cover had a drain and fill cause I’m lazy, lol.

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