Yeah I use a gasket with a little rtv....

Why not amsoil? Royal purple is effin expensive, and a few guys here have independent tests showing amsoils quality!

i get it through a distributor where i work for cost, which is a lot less than me buying amsoil

Either way, if you use synthetic oil in your diffs, you'll never need to change it again. I spent a year at Mobil Refinery here in town, and hung out with the operators there....Mobil 1 synthetic diff oil doesnt break down. At least not in the life of your vehicle. I'd expect nothing less from any other high quality synthetic gear oil

ANd make sure you dont have the t-case that only takes GM fluid

Is your drain plug at the bottom of the differential cover?

Reason why I ask is because I suspect your differential cover is aftermarket...

My 99 when it had the 10 bolt did not have a drain plug. Neither does the 14 bolt that I put in it...

i just checked it and its actually $6.62 a quart for 5w30 is what i pay, but its more convenient for me because it comes right to my work where the shop is heated to 60 degrees and i have a lift, and rags and place to put the old oil...

but both are great, i used to run amsoil in my 4 wheeler and it is great stuff
