Well, guess he figured out a way to make it better.
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?
Still no final video though.
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
Or just run a stock cover and rock out. Brah.
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.
Feeling inadequate with an 11.25" ring gear
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.
You know you and good ol Brad are coming out with your own design!
You never know...
I bet if you CNCd one that had a middle finger and the banks logo beside it, you could sell a couple dozen of em.
I still see it as solution to a problem that isnt there......
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.
engineer with a side of business genius....."the Gale Banks story"
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'
I'd say they definitely put in some work on it. I commend them on their in depth research, for sure, but I don't think I use my truck hard enough to really NEED one.
Do they sell Gale Banks engineered pants too?
What does that have to do with people buying aftermarket parts?
Well...I NEED a bigger turbo . I don't NEED that diff cover.
