This differential cover fits the rear Dana 35 differential on the following Jeep models from 1984 to 2004:

  • 1987 to 1995 YJ Wrangler
  • 1997 to 2001 TJ Wrangler
  • 1984 to 2001 XJ Cherokee & Wagoneer
  • 1993 to 1998 ZJ Grand Cherokee
  • 1999 to 2004 WJ Grand Cherokee with spacer (see installation below) or lifted
  • Ford Trucks and SUVs may have this axle for the front but usually do not have space for a larger cover

Configurations vary so check that you have the Dana 35. For Jeeps, other possible differentials include the Chrysler corporate 8.25 ((PML part number 9864) and the Dana C213 (no PML cover available). For Ford SUVs, see the Dana 30 (PML part number 5058). Make sure you have clearance for a larger cover.

Check carefully to be sure there is room for a larger cover. A larger cover may contact sway bars, gas tanks or skid plates. See the dimensions (above) and the installation (below).

If you need spacers, one of our customers with a Grand Cherokee has recommended these: Iron Rock Offroad 1 Inch Sway Bar Spacers. (Thanks Ross!)

This PML differential cover has a drain hole on the bottom and a fill hole on the front. A magnetic drain plug and mounting bolts are included. This cover does not have a location for machining for a temperature sending unit.

PML Differential Cover on a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee

This PML differential cover for the Dana 35 was installed on a 1999 Grand Cherokee 4.0 4x4 WJ. The sway bar was a bit too close to the larger PML cover, so the mechanic fabricated and installed a 0.125 (1/8 inch) spacer on the sides where the sway bar connects.

Also installed on this WJ: PML transmission pan part number 9862 and front differential cover part number 5058

Stock rear cover on a 1999 Grand Cherokee 4.0 WJ. There is about 1½ inches between the stabilizer bar and the stock cover. Jeep is on a lift since the stock cover is otherwise hard to see and access.

View from the ground looking up at a PML cover installed on a Grand Cherokee. To gain clearance for the larger PML cover, a spacer was installed on the stabilizer bar.
