    I mean, it does look cool. See what I did there.

    But more importantly, how many failures in the 11.5 are actually occuring due to heat?

    The way I see it, the $500 price tag removes mass from your wallet, lessens the weight being towed and thus, provides longer service life for the rear diff

    Sold my last truck at 360,000 miles (ram 3500 dually). Had the stock cover on it the whole time. Towing heavy and daily driving. I don’t even think I put $500 worth of gear oil in it.

    Still in for that next video. It looks like a good idea...maybe it's overkill, but I'm sure that it's possible to improve on the factory one.

    I guess I'm just naive, I was really hoping the series of videos wouldn't turn into a sales pitch at the end.

    The problem is that Gale Banks's pockets are deep, and are not quite full, and the AAM 11.5 is the most prolific axle on the most modified vehicle group out there right now.

    I put Gale Banks in the same category as Anwar Bose.
    For years Bose tagline was 'Bose- Better sound through Science'...when I had my home tech company the industry punchline 'Bose-Better sound through Marketing'
