Banks Differential Cover with Ram-Air Scoop
Banks Power dedicated a ton of time in designing their Differential Cover Kit, and what they've found is many other popular differential covers on the market actually hurt performance in the long run. This has lead to the development of their premium differential cover with a new and improved design that works so well they even got a patent for it. The banks engineering team's goal was to perfect fluid flow which is a major problem for many competitors featuring a flat-back design. The reason for this is the differential cover's cooling fins are almost useless because there's little to no airflow immediately behind the differential. Banks took a new approach to this and added 24 external radiator fins that offers 534 square inches of surface area to ensure optimal heat rejection in every situation. Banks then paired these fins with a Ram-Air Scoop that delivers improved fluid dynamics to help increase fuel economy and extend lubrication lift without compromise. This system also cools 118% better than it's flat-back competitor at sustained 60mph dyno tests and 4X better in on-road towing tests!
Premium Construction & Installation Info
The 2001-2019 Dodge/GM Banks Power Differential Cover was constructed from A380 diecast aluminum that features both internal and external cooling fins for maximum strength and long-lasting functionality you'll be sure to love. This kit also comes equipped with 304 stainless steel hardware and hex flanged mounting bolts for another layer of durability when you're behind the wheel. What's more, you'll find the included magnetic drain plug and fill plug extremely helpful as it comes with a 20-degree angle that simplifies oil changes over stock. The hardcore construction means this cover will be ready for just about any application you have in mind, and if the Ram-Air scoop becomes caught on an obstacle, it's designed to simply break-away instead to prevent even more damage to your truck's vulnerable underside. Better yet, the Ram-Air scoop isn't even the lowest component on your rig, so chances are your differential cover will stay in one place. When it comes to installation, this premium differential cover can be mounted using the included hardware and instructions to make the process as simple and straightforward as possible. Best of all, this cover comes backed by a Limited Lifetime Warranty to help keep your investment protected.

US Patent #10,443,705
The Banks Engineering team’s goal was to perfect fluid flow and reject BTUs from the fluid as fast the ring and pinion puts them in. If the fluid flow is impeded in any way, it results in resistance and aeration which reduce fuel economy and creates heat, thereby degrading the fluid and decreasing the lifespan of the gearset.
Almost all aftermarket covers have fins for cooling. Unfortunately, those fins are almost useless because there’s little or no airflow immediately behind the differential. Nearly all aftermarket covers impede fluid flow. Why does this matter? Aim a fire hose at a brick wall. It turns out liquid doesn’t like 90° angles or obstructions.
