Chrysler 8.25 3/8" Differential Cover

Chrysler 8.25 3/8
  • Ring is 1/2" and the Cover is 3/8" thick
  • Plate steel cover bent 8 ways
  • Machined absolutely flat for a perfect fit
  • Seams fully welded inside and out

This is our basic differential cover, we see it as the only one worth making. The Chrysler 8.25" axle came as Standard Equipment on the Jeep Cherokee (XJ), Grand Cherokee (ZJ), Liberty (KJ), & several Dakota trucks.

This Differential cover is a 1 piece Plate steel cap 3/8" (.375") thick bent 8 ways then welded to a 1/2" ring to better match up with the newer lockers. The fill plug is a generous 1.0" ID for easy fill and oil level check.

This is a fully welded Chrysler 8.25" Differential Cover, welded inside and out with fill plug. Bolts sold separately.

4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beef cover!! buy your own bolts, 1.23.2016
Reviewer: Ryan Petrukovich (La Grange, IL)

cover is the best money can buy, but you would wonder if ruff stuff has ever installed one before? you cant tighten the bolts with a socket since they are too close to the weld. so you have to use a wrench and you can barely turn it and get a good bite. id recommend ruff stuff sell the covers with socket cap bolts instead.

Reviewer: Eamonn OBrien (Albuquerque, NM)

Wheeled the rig pretty hard in Colorado last weekend and came home with the rear diff leaking after peeling the lip back. After searching high and low, finally opted for RuffStuff because everyone says they just work. They arrived 2 days later and my first response was "Holy CR*P!!!" I knew they were thick when I ordered them, but knowing and seeing are two completely different things. The diff covers may be the most bullet proof things on my rig when I get them mounted!

Ordering and shipping from RuffStuff is top notch. Fast and easy! The cover is pure craftsmanship. I'll recommend RuffStuff diff covers to all my friends looking for the BEST deal on a super heavy duty cover. Thanks!

Reviewer: Z. Collins (Rockford, IL)

Smashed, bashed, dragged, crashed... this cover laughs in the face of rocks and stumps. Have this and the D30 cover on my axles and I'll never have to worry about damaging them.

Reviewer: Roger Montemarano (Chandler, AZ)

Wow what a cover. This is by far the most solid piece of steel on my XJ. Can't wait to paint it and put her on. Thanks!

Reviewer: Brian Kemm (Royersford, PA)

Supreme build quality, however I do wish that the required socket head cap screws were supplied. Luckily I had enough laying around from enough pto install I had just done. Wish there was a drain plug but I can live without that.
