HD Diff Cover for Dana M210 (2018+ JL Rubicon, JL Rubicon Unlimited, and JT Gladiator Front Differential Cover)

These are heavy duty differential covers ready for the next generation of Jeep, and whatever the trail can throw at it! Upgrading to heavy duty covers are a must for "heavy users" or anyone looking to protect their axles while playing near rocks. We focus on having the best product to market rather than the first to the market, but this product happened to be both! We pride ourselves on these because of the (not so) minor detail of machining the mating surface flat unlike many of the other fabricated covers we've seen out there. A good weld will leave covers warped unless machined post welding.

CAD designed using 3D models for a precise fit, and to maximize clearance to the trackbar/steering. These are constructed from a 3/8" steel laser cut flange, and 1/4" steel laser cut and CNC formed body. These are beautifully hand welded inside and outside for the utmost strength.

These are decked flat/drilled in one of our in-house CNC mills *after welding*. This ensures that the mating surface is flat, and the bolt pattern is a precise match, regardless of any heating/cooling/warping that would be the result of the welding process. Because of this, RTV sealant is optional, and a factory style re-usable gasket can still be used.

Hardware kit and fill plug are included. Made with pride in the USA.
*Some photos may be of early prototypes; actual product may differ slightly visually - but are functionally the same*

We now stock these in bare metal, textured black powder coat, and a smooth red powder coat; there is typically a two week additional lead time for these colors unless they are in stock. If you want a different color, call us for a lead time.

*Verify that your vehicle is equipped with an M210 Front Differential Housing*
The Dana Spicer M210 Front Differential is standard equipment for the all new 2018+ Jeep Wrangler Rubicon JL, 2018+ Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon JL, and new JT Gladiator models. This cover will most likely *not* fit factory front differentials in Sport, Sport S, and Sahara trims of the Jeep JL. This item will *NOT* fit 2018 Jeep Wrangler *JK* models of any trim.
You can look on your build sheet for "Dana M210 Wide Front Axle" or the window sticker for "3rd Generation Dana® 44 HD Wide Front Axle.


What is the torque spec for the included M8 Grade 12.9 bolts? It is 34 ft lbs as measured on a torque wrench.

Where is the drain plug on this thing? Do you have to remove the diff cover to drain it?
Removing the cover/pumping is unnecessary. Unlike the earlier JK Dana 30 and 44, these new axles already have a drain plug/boss cast into the pumpkin. Removing the cover for a thorough inspection and wiping down any residual used oil may be beneficial though.

Do I need to use the factory gasket?
Yes. The reusable factory gasket is quite thick and this cover is designed for use *with* it. Clearance to internal components may be decreased without it.

I see that the logo is bare metal on the powder coated diffs; will that rust without coating?
No, it is made of stainless steel and will not rust.

Is this available with a raised fill hole?
Yes, please just give us a call! A raised fill plug is not necessarily recommended for most configurations. There is some simplicity to using the bottom of the fill plug as the “full level” like the factory covers; but we can certainly build them with a raised fill plug for those of us with pinion angles that have been rotated significantly. Most JL’s running 0 to 3″ of lift will not have a significant rotation of the rear pinion angle and therefore will have a “fill level” that is very close to factory.

Additional Details 

Products are designed and fabricated to fit vehicles that have varying tolerances from the factory, minor hand fitting may be required.

Products are shipped bare metal unless otherwise specified by the customer. Bare metal products may have scratches or surface imperfections as a result of raw material handling, manufacturing, and fabrication. However, these imperfections are easily covered up with a textured powder coat finish. Additional finishing, sanding, and prep work may be required if you wish to also have them finished with a smooth powder coat or paint.

Projected lead times are estimates only, and are subject to changes due to production realities, including material and labor availability and sudden variability in order volume. Lead times are not guaranteed, but we do guarantee that we are hard at work trying to get the best product we can produce and into our customers’ hands as quickly as possible.

All Next Venture Motorsports products are laser cut, CNC formed, and hand-weld with pride in the USA. We are a Colorado-based business, and welcome visitors by appointment at our Grand Junction, CO headquarters. We hope to see you out there on the trail soon!

High quality

High quality parts, very well packaged, and shipped very quickly.

Kris Berry
Quality through and through

Recently received the new diff cover and can't speak any more highly of it. Heavy duty, flat as a pancake, welds are beautiful, and fit up and sealed better than factory. Highly pleased with the product and the customer service with the company!

Joshua Rivet
Hefty hefty hefty

Solid. Heavy. Perfect fit. Pair this with the skid and you’re golden. Easy install. No RTV needed. Use factory gasket. Factory recommended fluid volumes seemed good.
The highest quality that you know to expect when you’re buying from NVM.

Most definitely recommend

Purchased these so that my Jeep would stand out and the folks at NVS knocked it out of the park. Thing is beefy and will definitely take a beating. If you’re in the market for a new Dif cover, certainly recommend these.

Todd Jubert
Built to withstand a beating!!

This diff cover is solid!! Very well built, will take a beating. No worries while out on the trail if I hit a rock/Boulder. Purchased the front and rear along with with skids! Great customer service, great company and the best is it’s Made in the USA.

Why next venture?

parts inspired by the trail

Our team got into the game after rock crawling, wrenching, fabricating and being inspired to design and build parts for what we love to do: hit the trail.

what our customers are saying


They invited me and my whole crew in for a tour of the facility on our way to Moab. These guys not only produce amazing armor for your Jeep, they are really good people. So, I’ve been running their rear diff skid for 9 months and it has easily held up to everything I’ve thrown at it.

After this go around with Moab and Holy cross, the diff skids did their job and protected my Jeep. My rear aluminum bumper performed phenomenally on the trail!

Rennato Lopez
Colorado Springs, CO

Can’t say enough about Dan and his ultra skilled team! Dan was able to get us in for a skidplate with UHMW & sliders for our JKUR. The fit, finish and quality are just out of this world! Can you say “stacked dimes”? Absolutely gorgeous welds…

Lance Wende
Montrose, CO

2 years later I'm writing this review. I've beaten the crap out of this thing hitting rocks, winching, draging it down obstacles, and now exposed to the Florida elements. The bumper looks like it did the day they sent it. You will not find a better company to work with that cares about their clients and their products!

My rear Next Venture diff skid takes a beating! Best rear diff skid available. Well done!

Lee Bower

Quality is amazing, items fit perfectly. Couldn't be more happy; these are gonna help out a lot between the tons and LS1.

Austin Besnier

Without a doubt, Next Venture Motorsports is my first stop for epic Jeep parts. Their JL aluminum front and rear featherweight bumpers are solidly built, easy enough to install, and crafted to perfection. I can't wait for more products for my 2 door JL!

AWESOME quality and customer service. 2021 Jeep 4xe! Return customer and will return again. Thank You Dan!

Jeffrey Smith
Columbia, SC

I like it because it lets you use factory fog lights if you want. They also have a featherweight aluminum option that doesn't have holes for fogs and is essentially a stubby bumper. I am very pleased with all of their stuff. [JL/JT Adventure Series Bumper]
