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.

Incredible Diff Cover
Ji Theriot (FL) | March 26th, 2023
This thing is impressive! It's thick, heavy and fit perfect. Be Aware!!!: This cover will require more gear oil than the factory cover. I think I ended up needing 4qts of oil when it was all said and done to ensure oil was getting to the wheel bearings.

Beefy unit looks great and will survive your wife driving over a large boulder. Only thing i will advise is not to use the inspection plug to fill the axle. I was about 2 quarts low when i checked it through the factory fill hole. Other than that its a good quality unit for a great price.

I just received my cover I ordered from you guys and felt the need to contact you. All I can say is wow! I really wasn��t expecting it to be like this. Very impressive fabrication. Excellent welds. Perfect machining. I��ve already made a post about it on my truck page. Thank you guys for building an excellent product. Especially the brake work that had to be done to get geometry correct. I��ll be using it on a race truck but I can see why guys would love these for off-road use. You��ll never break that thing! You��ll snap the tubes off before you dent cover! Thank you again for such an impressive piece

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
