This rear end differential cover fits many Ford F150s, vans and SUVs with the 12 bolt for 9.75 differential. Some possible applications are:

  • F150, 4.6, 5.0 or 5.4 engine, 2003 to 2019
  • F150, 1997 to 2003, 5.4 engine
  • Navigator, 1995 to 2006
  • Expedition, 1997 to 2002, 5.4 engine (check carefully for clearance)

Configurations vary. Always check the vehicle to verify the differential and clearance for a larger cover. Some vehicles may have a Ford 8.8 or 8.8 Super differential.

Note to Lightning owners: Ford Lightning 1999 to 2004 have a sway bar very close to the stock cover and there is no space for a larger aftermarket cover. Check your truck carefully for clearance.

This PML cover for Ford F–150 trucks, SUVs and vans has a traditional straight fin design and round shape. This is a heavy duty, extra capacity replacement for the stock 12 bolt cover on Ford Sterling 9.75 (9 3/4) inch differentials.


  • Increased fluid capacity
  • Round shape similar to stock cover
  • Fins for heat dissipation and classic styling
  • Drain hole and magnetic drain plug for easier servicing
  • Heavy duty construction to add strength to the differential housing
  • Thick gasket flange for a uniform clamping providing a secure seal
  • Fill hole and a boss that can optionally be machined for a temperature sending unit
  • Hardware included

PML also makes a patterned fin cover for this differential for applications with limited clearance or wanting a custom look.

Drain, Fill, Level Check, Optional Temperature Sending Unit Machining

This PML differential cover has a drain hole on the bottom and includes a magnetic drain plug.

There is a fill hole on top.

On the vehicles this cover was designed for there is a plug on the driveshaft side of the differential for level check (this can also be used for filling).

A boss on the side of the cover can be machined for a temperature sending unit. Optionally, PML can drill and tap a 1/8 NPT hole. There is a machining charge for this.
