I got a chrome one on mine, and it has yet to leak...been on for over 10 yrs. I dented the stock one pretty good backing up into a stump. It had ring gear marks in it. lol

I went with chrome cuz at the time, it was cheaper than a painted one from Mopar (the chrome one is from mopar too).

Did you use any kind of silicon or sealant for it?

I once took a chrome timing cover from a Chevy and used a 3M gasket remover disc on it with my die grinder. Took it down to bare metal on the gasket surface. It no longer pushed the gasket out like the chrome likes to do.

gasket? what the hell is a gasket?

that's what RTV is for.

I use The Right Stuff for everything, and nothing ever leaks (thermostat housings, water pumps, diff covers, trans pans, transfer case assembly, etc. I never use gaskets anymore). It's expensive, but not having to wait for it to cure is awesome, and self-dispensing rules.

Try Mopar Performance. The chrome ones are thicker then the other companies. If you use a gasket, don't over tighten it.

I have used gaskets and rtv only. I usually use the black rtv on diff covers, but here lately I have started using only the grey stuff, it seems to work better.

I do get all the gasket stuff off, CXlean it with brake cleaner, and make sure the surfaces are flat, even if I have to file them. Then I put on a thin layer of rtv, and bolt it on.
