Ford 8.8" 3/8" Differential Cover

This is our basic differential cover. The Ford 8.8 axle is easy to find in Ford Explorers, F150's, 4.0 liter Rangers, & a ton of Ford cars too.

  • Ring and the Cover are 3/8" thick
  • Plate steel cover bent 8 ways
  • Machined absolutely flat for a perfect fit
  • All seams welded inside and out
  • Optional bolt kit comes with (5/16) 12 point bolts with washers

The differential cover is a 1 piece 3/8" (.375") plate steel cap bent 8 ways then welded to a 1/2" ring. The fill plug is a generous 3/4" ID for easy fill and oil level check, it is located 1" above where the factory "should" have put it in a stock vehicle to account for pinion adjustment. One of the reasons it is so hard to hurt is that we manufacture it out of A50 Plate Steel, that's 50,000 PSI Tensile strength. After welding, the mounting surface is machined absolutely flat for a perfect fit!

This is a fully welded Ford 8.8 Diff Cover, welded inside and out and it will include a Fill Plug unlike many of the stock 8.8's.

Not first time I’ve done business with ruff stuff but like always satisfied with what I’ve purchased. This diff cover is built solid seen many others and got to say if your wanting something perfect it be this thing. Plus it’s made right here in the USA.

I have a few of these ruff stuff covers and its all I will run on my rigs. They fit better than the original cover.They have a nice big fill plug. I highly recommend these if you want the best

One beefy cover

I got the cover with the lube locker gasket and cant be happier. I had a Eaton tru trac installed with 4.88 gears and the gears were scraping against the stock cover so I bought this fabricated cover and I am not worried about it getting punctured. I dont abuse my truck, but its one thing I know I am not going to be concerned for anymore!

Super beef

I can't speak for the durability of it since I don't beat on my rig like others but it sure is beefy. It weighs a ton, fits great and looks great. The welds are fantastic and the bends are perfect. I WILL be buying one for the front when I swap axles. Great work!

Super strong cover!

This cover is awesome and it can definitely take a beating! And ordering for ruff stuff was easy as pie and shipping was pretty fast! I would definitely recommend and buy another one but I'm sure I won't need to with how beefy it is!
