Ok they are finally done. Pics are of the D44 version.

The Nissan axle version (for non-Off-road model 2005+ Xterra's) is done too. It Looks almost exactly the same. Will have pics of that one in a couple days.

The Ring is 3/8" Steel
The Guard is 1/4" steel
New longer SS Hex bolts included.

The design of this cover offers several benefits:

- No loss of ground clearance at what it already the lowest point on the truck.

- Complete protection of the vulnerable cap which can be pushed into the ring rear when hitting something in reverse.

- Prevents the lip from getting peeled back when dragging over rocks which will cause fluid leaks.

- Allows you to maintain the factory mounts for the emergency brake cable and the rear brake line.

- Doesn't require removal of the stock cover, re-sealing and re-filling.

Price is $109.00

Comes bare steel. Powder Coat Black +20.00.

Taking orders starting today. First batch ships in 4-5 weeks. After that, we plan to keep them in stock.

EDIT - Up on the www site now, link:

Super Sweet - That's a very nice Valentine Days present LOL

I will spread the info on the XterraQuebec Club - You will probably have to ship some in Quebec this spring...

Well, look at it this way, with the AC one you will be abel to drain the diff fluid without issue. :)

That's the only thing the Shrock doesn't address.

I am going to be getting rid of my AC one and picking this one up. Besides working as a shovel when backing up the AC one costs me about 1.5" of clearance on what was already my lowest point. This seems worth it. Awesome work Jim :compress:

I would, but I don't feel like spending another $100+.

Nice!

But I'm on mod strike until someone comes up with TC gears. Saving all my mod money until them.

After I get TC gears I'll order one of this covers. They look great!

Jim,

A few things.

1. You have a typo.

Complete protection of the vulnerable cap which can be pushed into the ring rear when hitting something in reverse.

I assume that shouls be "ring gear"


2. Since the manual tranny S and X models also have the D44 variant, to make it clear for people you should change your wording and also list the Nissan part numbers.

D44 Variant = M226 (With or without e-locker) (Models: Manual/Automatic Off-Road, Manual S and Manual X)

Non D44 Variant = C200 (Models: SE, Automatic S and Automatic X)

Looks good. I just did confirm that the model numbers are the same in the Frontier, what I can't confirm is which models really have which diffs. It doesn't state in the Service Manual.

That's awesome. My wallet wishes I was on "mod strike."

I ordered one. I'm beginning to think that Jim could just start making up useless stuff (i.e. muffler bearings) and I would probably buy it.

I hope that thing is as heavy duty as it looks in the pictures.

So will that thing be a pain in the ass to install? Any photos of what goe into that? An jim...........You might as well add that to my order, make it black. Ill call
Remove a few bolts and bolt this on. You might loose about a cup of fluid, so you may need to top off. That's it. Call me or email. Need to know what axle you have.
