    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

    This cover fits the Chrysler/Dodge 9.25 inch ring gear differential, frequently found on the rear of the following vehicles:

    • Ram 1500, 1994 to present
      • 2009 and up should check clearance with sway and pan hard bars as it is a tight fit but has been installed
      • SRT models usually need a Dana 60 10 bolt differential cover
      • Mega Cab models usually need 10.5 inch ring gear 14 bolt differential cover
    • Dakota, 1998-2003, 5.9 engine
    • Dakota, 2000 & newer, 4.7 engine
      May need PML Chrysler 8.25 10 bolt cover
    • Durango, 1998-2003
      May need PML Chrysler 8.25 10 bolt cover
    • Ram Vans
      May need PML Chrysler 8.25 10 bolt cover

    Always check your vehicle to verify differential and clearance. Configurations vary. Counting the bolts on the stock cover can help identify the differential. PML cannot guarantee fitment.

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

    Common gear ratios for the Dodge 9.25 rear axle are 3.21, 3.55 and 3.92.

    Our customers have installed this PML differential cover on many Ram 1500 trucks as well as Dodge Durangos and Dakotas.

    2020 Ram 1500

    Britt installed this PML differential cover on his 2020 Ram Rebel. After powder coating the cover a custom red, he installed the PML cover with the stock sway bar. It fit with about 1/8" clearance. For his RMI sway bar, Britt made and installed spacers to make enough space for the larger PML cover.

    2012 Ram 1500

    Dodge began adding a pan hard bar and a sway bar behind the stock cover around the 2009 model year for Ram 1500 trucks. We have heard that it is a close fit with the bars.

    Images courtesy of www.ramforumz.com. According to the posting, the axle fore and aft movement is controlled by the upper and lower control arms, so the 3/8 inch clearance is not a problem. You might need an account to read the post.

    2003 Ram 1500

    This installation is on a 2003 Ram 1500 4x4 with the 5.7 Hemi. The owner wanted a custom look so he purchase the as-cast finish and took the PML cover to a powder coater in his area. He selected a texture red powder coat and brushed the powder coating off the top of the fins so they stand out.
