Now let's see a comparison between his good ram air diff cover and the OE aluminum finned cover. It seems very strange that Gale spent so much time disproving the aftermarket covers but skipped the factory aluminum cooling cover.
Agreed.

Show us the data... Use the OEM cover as the baseline. I have little doubt that some level of performance improvements can be made, but is the value there? Is the bang worth the buck! OEM parts have to be cheap and only perform throughout the warranty period.

He went after the after market covers because the people that buy them are more likely to make a change and buy his cover than the people that think they could use something better - but will never act on it! :D :D :D

:idea: Will we now see a new product line ? :idea: Chassis dyno coolers ? Other ones won't work, but his will. It is really bizarre though how some vehicles get so friggin hot at the diff & others don't. Not sure what the deal was with my old PW. It consistantly ran hotter than most. Even empty it would hit 170*F in 7 miles @ 55 mph on a 70* day. Not my problem anymore though.
Traded to 2019 ZR2, Red.

4Runner was a GREAT vehicle but could not even tow our 6x10 enclosed utility trailer comfortably, even when it was empty-ish.

It was time. Truck was still leaking BADLY every time it rained or snowed & melted. It was leaking at every single gasket (rear window, front window, all 4 doors). You could sit inside & watch it run down the inside of windshield, rear window & drip off the upper side door beams. It was molding on the inside & starting to stink. Needed new steering gearbox, shocks, new upgraded T-style steering, tires, brake lines, d/s manifold bolts that are barely recognizable due to rust-removed & replaced. Everyone around here would not even touch em once they looked at them.

So, say what you will. PW turned into a money pit. Was no longer a joy to drive. Hoping that this downsized 4x4 with lockers will fill the bill & have minimal problems, but..... As long as manufacturers keep making engineers design things that fail soon after warranty is up, we are going nowhere fast. Regardless of what you buy. :rockon:
