Default Dana 60 front cover

As most know I am slowly moving along on my Dana 60 coversion. I ordered one of the thick plain steel covers 707233X which is on it's way. Those are very reasonably priced by the way. I was wondering what other options there might be. I understand that clearance to the steering linkage can be an issue.

Dana 60 cover on the bottom. Nowhere near the same price of a stamped steel though.

Anyone have a PML one up front? I have one of theirs in the back but their site makes it sound like the front might get close to the steering linkage.

The Mag-Hytec one I have is VERY thick on the bottom and in the front. You'd really have to hit something hard to smash it. I'd be more worried with hitting my tie rods and stuff if I went off road.

These trucks usually aren't very good rock crawlers anyways.

Tom I did both my 60 and 80. I can't find the 60 pics right now, but took a 3/8" NPT coupler and welded on the bottom for a drian plug. Worked out great. Then I powder coated them.. Here is the D80 cover. D60 looks similar for drain plug.

Powdercoating is a decent idea, I have a good guy for that. I also like that drain plug idea.
