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.

Bad ass cover, really impressed with the welds, bends on the cover. Already shared this with the Jeep club.

Expertly crafted

This cover is a work of art, I should have clear coated it instead of painting it black. Seriously, someone give their welder a high five, that guy/gal is at the top of their game! The bolt kit was also equally high grade stuff. In all, this thing is heavy duty and will hold up to whatever I can throw at it. Ordered it through Amazon so it doesn't get easier. Shipping was incredibly fast. I couldn't be happier. I would definitely recommend this to anyone and I absolutely will buy from ruffstuff again!

I was very impressed with the quality of the bends and welds. I received the diff cover in a timely manner. Another perk; getting stickers!!!! 🇺🇸

This thing weighs a ton and looks like it will take more abuse then any other part on my truck can't wait to install it! Showed up less then a week after ordering and was packaged really well.
