Part Number: RH-9051
Rock Hard 4x4 is very proud to offer the Heaviest Duty 1/4" Thick Steel Differential Cover for the Dana 44 Housing.

FITMENT NOTE: Not compatible with JL and JT housings as they are not traditional Dana 30 and Dana 44 center sections like we know them. We hope to have our HardHats for the JL and JT finalized soon.

Our Differential HardHat's™ are designed to offer maximum protection where your rig needs it most. The factory differential cover offers minimal protection and provides zero deflection. In minutes, you can install a 1/4" thick plate steel cover with built-in impact deflecting angles. We've laser cut-out an oil change cutout to make servicing a breeze.

Million Dollar Question:
Why not a full differential cover replacement? Same reason we do not attach our best-selling JK Oil Pan Skid Plate directly to the oil pan. We are moving hard impacts away from your internals as far as we can, while maintaining clearance for your suspension/track bars. This gives you the best of both worlds: Ultimate 1/4" thick steel drive train protection with maximum off road clearance.

What comes in every kit:
  • Differential Cover HardHat™
  • Zinc-coated Hardware
  • Installation Instructions
  • Preinstalled Stainless Steel Backing Plate

Three Reasons Why:
  • Protects critical drivetrain components
  • 1/4" thick plate steel
  • Simple hand tool install

FAQ:
What track bars and/or tie-rods are compatible?
These covers were designed with factory tie rods and track bars in mind. You can use these measurements to help you decide if there is enough clearance for your particular aftermarket application:

What finish is available?
Rock Hard 4x4 Diff HardHat's™ ship in a high gloss red powder coat finish.

Where is this made?
This product, like all RH4x4 parts, was designed, developed, tested, manufactured, and if applicable, powder coated, and shipped in the USA. And we don't mean the 75% legal standard to be able to say Made in USA. We are 100% Made in the United States of America!

Best BANG for your buck.
Minimal space for maximum protection! The red is a nice touch, and even though you don't have to take the OEM diff cover off I did to clean/change fluid/seal. My only recommendation is that I wouldn't use the provided hardware. I would get hex bolts instead of using the provided allen bolts of the same thread/length. The allen strips easy and is just a bit of the pain. LOVE covers themselves thoug

Dana 44 Hardhat Rocks!
Fit the early CJ5 Dana 44 rear perfectly. Be careful to check the bolt length as your early D44 threads may not go as deep as required to reach the 20 ft pound torque. Check and if you meet resistance, just grind a single thread off each bolt and dress them. This is one heavy duty product!
