Differential cover

Has anyone changed their differential cover to a larger custom type cover that holds more fluid? I have a Ram 1500 with the corporate differential with the 12 bolt cover. I tow a 26 ft. camper and would like to have some additional rear end fluid to help keeps things a little cooler. Does anybody know who sells the larger differential covers with cooling fins that fit a 1500?

Couple of questions, Has anyone found a low or high pressure point in the rearend housing that a hose could be attached that would flow oil through a cooler without using a pump? Thermo dynamics will move hotter oil up drawing cooler oil from below. I suspect there is too much turbulence inside the housing to allow this to naturally happening. Any ideas?
This is a trans cooler that I think would work for a rearend.

You could try it, and im sure you'll get some cooling from it, but the pump is the true better way.
Not to mention to get it to work the other way using the gears to do it would mean drilling and tapping areas you really might make a issue at.

As for covers...

AFE the best if you have a diff they cover, then Mag-hytec and then the rest
