Dana 44 3/8" Differential Cover D44

Dana 44 3/8" Differential Cover D44



  • Ring and the Cover are 3/8" thick
  • Plate steel cover bent 8 ways
  • Machined absolutely flat for a perfect fit
  • All seams fully welded inside and out

This is our basic differential cover, we see it as the only one worth making. The Dana 44 axles are found stock on an endless variety of trucks from International Scouts (front & rear), Chevy, Ford, & Dodge trucks usually in the front, Wagoneers (Waggy's), Rubicons, Cherokees, & about a hunderd others. The D44's end up in every kind of rig made from Samurai's to Land Cruisers to Jeeps and even Full Sized trucks & Light Weight Buggies.

The Differential cover is a 1 piece Plate steel cap 3/8" (.375") bent 8 ways then welded to a 3/8" ring!. The fill plug is a generous 1" ID for easy fill and oil level check. The D44 is our second best selling cover. After welding the mounting surface is machined absolutely flat for a perfect fit! And they will fit the new Rubicon D44's.

This is for a fully welded D44 High or Low pinon Diff Cover, ready to plug & play!

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bombproof covers
By Tim Robinson in GA on 7.17.2017
I work in the aerospace industry and I have to say these are probably some of the nicest welds I've seen to date. These diff covers arrived well packaged and minimal prep was needed for paint. I just sanded them with an orbital sander, wiped and sprayed. These look nice on my Jeep JKU Rubicon and I no longer have oil spotting from the trail damaged factory diff covers. Thanks for the business!!

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 2 Works of Art!!
By Gary Petrilli in PA on 7.10.2017
WOW!!! These covers are just incredible! I purchased 2 for my jeep Dana 44 axles. The price is great! These things look absolutely indestructible! I can't wait to put them on. The welds and craftsmanship are just a work of art! You will not hurt these, no matter where you wheel! So glad that I got these covers and not someone else's!! ... Thanks guys!!

By JOHN MCHORNEY in CA on 4.2.2017
I ordered two of these for my two cherokees. Arrived fast. I was expecting strong, but these are bomb proof. I would suggest you buy one now and never worry about smashing your ring gear.

By Will Weiss in WA on 3.12.2017
1. Item came fast and all parts were included and packaged well. 2. Diff cover was excellent. 3. Installation went well. 4. I plan to purchase 2nd diff cover for front axle.

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wow!!
By Brian Pulscher in OK on 10.31.2016
Super stout. Look great and don't have to worry about wrecking these!! One very minor issue. Had to use an open end wrench on a few of the bolt heads as my socket wouldn't fit due to the machining...Not a big deal, and not a complaint at all. Great Stuff!!! Painted them red so they'll pop, and I'll try and send folks your way!

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Super beefy!
By Josh Duby in NV on 8.26.2016
When I got cover I didn't expect to be as stout and as well made as this is. Love it so far!

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Perfect once again
By Scott Corliss in UT on 8.19.2016
This is the 3rd Diff Cover I've ordered from RuffStuff - each for different rigs. It was shipped the day we placed the order and we received it quickly! This is just as beefy, with the same high quality welds, as the other covers we've gotten. The quality is exceptional once again. If you are serious about getting a great product at a great price you need not look any further than Ruffstuff!

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 The Undisputed Heavy Weight
By Evan Link in CA on 8.5.2016
The covers are what everyone says - and I was still impressed. I ordered on-line and got them in CA the next day. When I told the guy at the shop doing my gears I was getting them he had only good things to say. Great product, great price, easy ordering/shipping, why would anyone buy anything else?

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heavy Duty
By Shannon Darnell in CA on 1.25.2016
Ordered these and basically got them the next day, as I'm in Ca. I'm not one to tear my stuff up just because I can. And being a gear head I despise those people. But I can tell you these are the EPITOME of heavy duty. When the world ends there will be 3 things left, Cockroaches, Keith Richards, and these Diff covers.. Pull the trigger on these.

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Loved it so much this is my second one.
By mason taylor in AL on 11.12.2015
I've built two Dana 44s one on a rock crawler and I loved it so much I ordered one for my mud truck. Very stout and the welds look amazing. Very pleased

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stout piece!
By Jason Dean in ID on 11.9.2015
This is a fantastic cover, I don't think I will ever have an issue with this leaking or getting dented! Anyone needing a cover will not get a better price for the quality

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 strongest one piece on my rig!
By nick peix in CA on 11.5.2015
this cover is perfect! each weld is spot on perfect.. the cover mount surface is Laser line straight- not to mention is bomb proof.i think its stronger than the rest of the axle- excellent craftsmanship! welded on brackets for hydro assist steering- awesome!

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 I tried to break it. I failed.
By Kevin McNatt in CA on 9.16.2015
These diff covers are incredibly strong. I wheel in rocks the majority of the time and my front diff cover has seen some serious abuse without a problem. Buy one and you wont ever need another.

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 diff cover thats as strong as the rest of your axle housing
By Darren Casada in KY on 8.16.2015
All material is 3/8" thick, dome for ring gear is bent from one piece of flat steel, 2nd peice is the bolt pattern ring. Definately a nice piece that will stand the test of time. My wish list would be to have option for allen bolts that are flush mount cone shape.

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tank proof!!!!
By Jason Anderson in CA on 6.3.2015
This diff cover is built very well. You could drive a tank over these. The machining on the mating surface is great and the cover is perfectly formed. I really like how big the fill plug is. Now I don't have to ask my wife to check the level of my diff fluid. hahaha I wouldn't hesitate to recommend these diff covers to any of my buddies.

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 holy crap
By nathan smith in CA on 5.23.2015
id heard about ruff stuff's diff covers before so i figured id try one out. all i can say is holy crap this is beefy. the welds are so beautiful that i strongly debated clear coating it. it fits perfect and di not need any modification. i highly doubt i will ever need another diff cover for this axle

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Perfect Fit Every Time
By Lawrence Calkins in NV on 4.30.2015
When my customers ask about differential covers to replace their Dana 44 tin, I always recommend the Ruffstuff cover. As a fabricator, I'm amazed that these 3/8" steel covers, punched and welded to a flange, always line up with the tapped housing holes and I don't have to file or drill oversize to align to the housing. It's undoubtedly the strongest D44 cover on the market.

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 end-all-be-all
By Donald Blackwell in PA on 4.15.2015
There's no comparison with ruffstuff's diff covers. Actually sold my "bombshell" cover when i bought this. Absolutely solid and really a work of art, not to mention no 11-teen-year-old skull on them. Shipping is awesome every time with these guys. Absolutely would by again, and have for the other toys.

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Excellent
By Jake in CA on 3.5.2015
Bought just to ditch the factory cover and get some protection. This thing is beefy, came with all the hardware and plug included. Fits perfect with Ruffstuff offset tie rod ends.

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beef!
By Tyler Schwartz in CA on 1.1.2015
Installed on a rear of a cherokee. Looks awesome and is the strongest cover out there!
