Xterra C200 Differential Cover
Xterra c200 Differential Cover. CNC Laser cut and CNC Press formed 8 times from one piece. The ultra thick 3/8" flange resists pulling off of the sealing surface while dragging the differential, while the 1/4" body resists denting even during the most abusive circumstances. Includes weld on skull logo, welded fill plug and two sets of metric Grade 8 hardware. Welded and Machined flat.
To identify weather your Nissan truck has a C200 or an M226 ( Dana 44 variant) differential, check your door tag for these marks -
CC = M226; 33 is 3.36:1, 35 is 3.54:1 and 36 is 3.69:1
If you have an automatic transmission, the rear end will be a C200 with a 3.13:1 ratio ... if you have a manual trans, it will be an M226 (Dana D44 variant) with either a 3.54:1 or 3.69:1 ratio (depending on year)

i recently installed a Ballistic Fab.rear diff cover for a 2016 Nissan Frontier with, a C200k rear end. Ballistic Fab had to back order my request but kept me in mind once the part became available. They are to be applauded for remembering me and reached out first to notify me that the part was again available. The rear diff cover arrived well packaged and complete with instructions on installation procedures. (the correct size mounting bolts were sent the first time.) Being a "Boomer" (old guy) it was a real task to install the heavy duty cover. The first time was to learn with. RTV not properly spread on the surface. So it leaked. Second time I installed two nails into the diff bolt hole on the axle ; carefully applied the RTV to the surface; timed it for partial cure per factory instructions; held the new cover with both hands...guided the cover onto the protruding nails at the top of the cover; this allowed me time to finger install the new allen head bolts (2) and then removed the loosely fitting nails This is for guys with no help/second pair of hands.
Finally, the cover is on; its a good fit; the Fab bolts went on well with no binding and i have the satisfaction of knowing there's more fluid to help keep the rear diff a bit cooler and for the discerning eye there is this spiffy cover on the rear diff.
Thanks to Ballistic Fab for making available functional and visually appealing
after market modification parts.
(downside: suggestions could be made on how to relocate or the brake line bracket or a way to mount it to the new cover. Possible upgrade: Mag hytech has this dipstick magnet on their diff covers to help minimize the floating metal particles in the gear oil.....makes regular cleaning easier without removing the actual drain plug.)

Quality equipment at a great price !
As the title says, and like everyone tells me , nice welds .
I love the cover, but the bolts were the wrong thread pitch. I had them all painted up and ready to go for the dealership. They ended up having to use 6 out of the 8 originals and getting 2 slightly longer ones to finish the job. I hope they don't charge me for it.
Like most of us who like to play hard with our 4x4's at some point you'll need to replace your rear diff cover with a new heavy duty version. First off there are not a lot of options if you have a C200 8 bolt diff cover. I went with Ballistic and haven't looked back, they make on hellva product! Welds and build quality were spot on!
