For this differential cover design, PML included a bit of extra capacity, some fins, a fill and level check hole, and a drain hole.
Aluminum construction and fins will provide cooling and the drain plug will make easier oil changes.
The top boss is machined for the vent (included).
Because there is little clearance, removing the stock cover is difficult.
The drain on the PML drain hole simplifies future fluid changes and servicing.
A magnetic drain plug is provided.
The differential cover also has oil fill/level check hole and boss which can optionally be machined for a temperature sending unit.
Installing the larger PML cover can be challenging.
Matching Rear Differential Cover
There is very little space.
Dakota and Durango vehicles have had clearance issues with the steering rack and have made modifications to increase clearance.
PML makes rear end covers for the Dodge 9" and the Dodge 8".
Please see our part number 9518 for the 9" and part number 9864 for the 8".
