very durable the aluminum is like 3/8" thick they are tough
You still need to fill it to the full mark which is the factory plug location
Mike69 posted a nice one up above from Summit. This style includes a couple of screws that you tighten up against the axle main bearing caps, it acts like a girdle and gives extra support.

If you want bulletproof metal then there are several off road style 8.8 covers as well. For most applications I like the aluminum style because you get the extra strength. The aluminum is still WAY STRONGER then your factory plastic or even thin metal covers. (FYI Ford SVO used to make the aluminum girdle style for the 8.8 axle)....
