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 hundred 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 3/8" (.375") plate steel cap 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 RuffStuff Tuff!
By JJ in CA on 6.6.2018
Beautiful, perfection, should take a hit nicely! Clean welds nicely machined could not have asked for a better deal!

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ultimate
By Spencer Leonard in VT on 5.15.2018
Extremely burley product. Highly recommend if you plan on ever backing down for another go... Totally exceeded my expectations in every way. Thanks guys! Definitely going to be ordering another for the front.

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 I wonder if these are bullet proof...
By Ryan Rider in MO on 5.15.2018
The welds are just superb, they not only look great but have great penetration. There was almost zero splatter on the cover that needed cleaning before painting. These with the Lube Locker gasket are just an awesome combo. I opted for the bolt kit and they look and work great as well. I was not expecting them to be 12point bolt head but it works. These fit on a 2018 JKU Rubicon with stock suspension. You can't say that this strong of an aftermarket diff cover could fit on that tight of clearance without precision on ruffstuff's end. Would buy again and will recommend to jeep club members!

By Jim R. in UT on 4.21.2018
Extremely durable. Was so impressed I bought another for the rear.

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!!

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dana 44 will break before the cover will.
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.

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Impressed
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

Question:

Matt on 8-24-2018 Asked: Will this fit a High Pinion D44? Thanks

Answered: Yes, it will fit a factory high pinion Dana 44 . Aftermarket housings like Dynatrac use a different bolt pattern cover.
Mike on 8-2-2018 Asked: Part Number: D44COV Pretty much same question as previously inquired. Looking to put in my rear 44 dana and wondering about fitting & rubbing issues. Currently using stock suspension on my JK 2014 Rubicon. Reading several forums and still very confused on what brand works and what doesn't considering all the types. Thanks for any info you can provide.

Answered: No you would not have any fitment issues. One of our employees is running them on his stock height JK and he did not need to make any modifications.
Ian R. on 1-30-2018 Asked: Is there any clearance issues when using your diff covers on a Jeep tj with factory steering? Thanks ian

Answered: Usually not with the factory linkage. But you can check what kind clearance you would have with your wheel turned fully. This cover sticks off the housing about 3 1/8"
Nick on 1-2-2018 Asked: Is the diff cover the same for a front Dana 44 and a rear Dana 44?

Answered: These covers will fit front and rear Dana 44 axles, except the aluminium rear D44 found in some jeeps.
