    If you fill it from the plug, fill it til it hits the top of the plug and you will be set. You may have a bad gasket/seal on the rear cover if it is leaking

    If you have the stock 28 spline axle in your truck, this diff cover will NOT work w/out modifying it for clearance.

    To answer your question, it takes 1 qt extra for that diff cover.
