This PML cover for the big Ford trucks and SUVs has a patterned fin for a custom look. PML offers a front cover in a matching design. It adds capacity to help lower the differential fluid temperature. Thick walls and gasket flanges add strength to the differential housing and provide a uniform clamping force on the gasket surface for a secure seal.

PML makes a front end cover for these trucks. See PML part number 11169 for the Dana 50/60 front differential or PML part number 6063 for pre–1999 model year trucks.

This PML cover has holes for drain and fill. A boss on side optionally can be machined for a temperature sensor for an additional cost. Call to order machining and let us know your sensor thread size.

The level check hole for this differential is provided by Ford and is located on the driveshaft side of the differential housing.
