    Rear Dana 44 diff cover bolts

    Does anyone know correct size of rear diff cover bolts? 18 JLUR.

    I purchased a skid plate, through a vendor who sells products for a certain supporter of this forum...who SUCKS and I will never order their product or recommend them. Skid plate was sent in a sealed box and hardware bag was present but EMPTY. Second time this manuf. has screwed me. There customer service is non-existent as far as I'm concerned. I won't go into all details.

    I need the diff bolt size so I can buy them myself somewhere else. Thanks folks!

    Let me guess, you bought a rancho skid thru northridge (first mistake) who is prob blaiming rancho for the missing bolts. Sounds familiar......

    My guess: Colonel Mustard, with a revolver, in the billiard room.

    Did I win?

    If I had a JL, I'd pull one and measure it for you. You could always pull the top center one and measure it with a thread gauge or just go to Ace Hardware and match it up. Just make sure it's longer to account for the thickness of the new skid.

    I don't purchase from Northridge smart ass. I didn't name vendor or supporter because I didn't want to piss off the moderators. Thought I was being considerate. Wasn't the vendors fault. Is the distributors. Box was sealed from distributor and I have been told by more than one vendor this has been ongoing problem with distributor.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
