Universal Differential Cover by ARB®. When off road, it is inevitable that obstacles and off-road hazards will be encountered that could potentially inflict expensive damage to your differential. To prevent this, ARB manufactures the Differential Cover. Using high tensile nodular iron, it has been engineered to protect the differential and ring and pinion set from any off road hazards.
- Computer optimized cross brace design increases the structural rigidity of the whole axle
- Additional housing strength helps keep the ring & pinion gears meshing on the flat faces of the teeth, greatly increasing ring & pinion life and overall maximum load strength
- Top quality, high power neodymium magnets are used in both the drain plug and the dipstick to collect metallic wear particles as the vehicle moves
- Magnet location in the end of the dipstick allows the oil to be checked for tell-tale signs of internal damage
- Prolonged carrier bearing life due to extra support to the bearing alignment
- Approach/departure angle optimized by angled exterior surfaces
- Unique dipstick/filler cap design allows differential oil level to be adjusted for customized high driveline angles
Fabricated from high tensile solid nodular iron that is tougher and harder than solid carbon steel, the new ARB Differential Cover is the ideal piece of equipment to protect your Air Locker and ring and pinion set-up from the obstacle impacts of competition rock crawling and challenging off road trails.
An incorporated, computer-optimized cross brace design adds over 900 foot-pounds of torsional rigidity to the entire axle assembly. The resulting increased flex strength in the housing encourages improved meshing of the ring and pinion gears and greater carrier bearing support for longer component life and overall load strength.
The low profile shape of the housing maximizes the running gear clearance around the unit and provides optimal approach and departure angles.
A unique combination dipstick and filler cap design allows for the differential oil levels to be adjusted for customized high driveline angles, and allows the user to check the oil for possible water contaminations without having to drain the unit. Made from high quality rare earth magnets, both the dipstick and the drain plug are designed to collect any metal wear particles floating in the fluid.
The origins of ARB can be traced back to Australia’s remote Top End, circa 1975. A region of vast distances and rugged terrain, it was fast becoming a Mecca for the nation's burgeoning 4WD community. However, the very environment that attracted 4 wheelers also wreaked havoc on their equipment – when driving in extreme conditions, only the best 4x4 accessories will do. Today, ARB is Australia’s largest manufacturer and distributor of 4x4 accessories. They also have an international presence, with an office in the US and an export network that extends through more than 80 countries around the globe. ARB' philosophy, however, has never wavered from its original course – quality, reliability and practicality above all else.
