For most, upgrading the differential cover is for shear aesthetics. And while we agree an aftermarket cover looks good, there are typically more benefits than this. For starters, many covers are larger, thus have the ability to hold more oil to aid in cooling. Further, these covers are also typically finned, again, aiding in heat dissipation. Magnetic drain plugs are also common on many covers including Mag-Hytec and aFe, that make oil replacement simple and clean. Read MoreWhile we may spend a great deal of time under our trucks, we definitely aren't upgrading the transmission pan because of its looks. Rather, these covers share many of the same benefits as the previously mentioned differential covers, aiding in cooling and offering a magnetic drain plug. And yes, we'll admit it, they do look pretty cool when you're hanging out under your truck!
