Has anyone been keeping up with Gale Banks on YouTube? He is doing a series on the L5P, but I think most information will cross over to other generations and other brands as well. He has some good info on Rearend covers too.

2007.5 3500HD, SRW, LMM, LTZ, Z71, CCLB. Summit White with all chrome and wheels blacked out. Steel Craft bumpers on both ends. Cranked torsions. 285/70-17 Trail Cutters on stock wheels. PVC reroute. Amsoil in engine and diffs. Hypertech Max Energy on 1. Stage 2 transmission

Yes, very informative with a great deal of insight. The man really knows his stuff and goes into a lot of detail to explain it. Looks like the L5P has a great deal of potential for some serious output. Great videos. Dean

I watched those videos but I never found where he actually proved the covers were bad. Did i miss a video?

The videos I watched were of him making the wild assumption that automotive engineering is top notch and that every part is meticulously designed for optimal performance. You serious, Clark?

And, seriously, please do not state his demo with the clear cover is 'the evidence'. That 'test' assumes the oil profile with a stock cover is what is necessary to maintain good lubrication. Until that assumption is validated it is an assumption.
Show me metal wear rates of the exact same vehicle running the exact same oil under the exact same conditions for the exact same duration, one with a stock cover, one with an aftermarket cover. Then i might be willing to listen.

Until then, i'm going to be cautious when any company that doesn't even make a specific part (only their competitors do) tries to tell me that said aftermarket parts are not good designs.

It’s amazing that trucks have stayed on the road this long with stamped steel differential covers. What did people spend their money on before pretty finned aluminum covers came along?

Exactly, we spend our money on lots of other mods, mainly for bragging rights.
I spent money on one, it looks pretty kool to me when I’m underneath the rear of my truck.
That’s the only way to see it with the spare tire in place.

I could never have a stock truck, or all stock any vehicle.
All stock is just to boring.
In fact this is going on mine as soon as it arrives

consumerism has its advantages:
the consumer chooses his/her lifestyle what goods are necessary and what luxuries can be afforded.
the opportunity to enjoy this world (food, drink, entertainment) in various quantities.
economic advantages to a large segment of the population (middle- and upper-class).
the opportunity and motivation to improve your social standing by working hard.
