Aftermarket parts, such as sway bars, change the available clearance for a larger differential cover. Check measurements.

PML designed this rear different cover for Ram 1500, Dakota, and Durango, with additional capacity and fins for dissipating heat from the fluid.

On trucks with sway and pan hard bars, this design maintains clearance to those OEM parts.

Benefits:

  • Drain hole and magnetic drain plug included for easy servicing
  • Extra capacity
  • Fins for heat dissipation
  • Clears stock pan hard and sway bars in most configurations
  • Custom fin design
  • Strong sand cast aluminum construction
  • Machined gasket flange for a secure seal

Included with Cover

This PML rear axle cover has drain, level check, and fill holes for easy maintenance. Just below the fill plug, is the level check hole. You fill until the fluid comes out of that hole. Plugs are provided for all three holes. The drain plug is magnetic.

There is a machining charge for PML to drill and tap the hole.

Sway and Pan Hard Bars

This PML cover has been installed on many newer model year trucks although there is not much space. Dropping the sway bar during installation is helpful.
