PML designed this differential cover as a bolt on replacement cover for Nissan Titan trucks. This cover is compatible with the brake clip and bracket and has a fill/level check hole at the same height as on the stock cover for an accurate fluid level.
- Extra capacity
- Sand-cast aluminum, heavy duty construction for strength
- Thick gasket flange for a secure seal
- Oversized fins for cooling
- Works with stock brake line clip and bracket (2005 and later) that attach to the differential cover
- Bolt-on replacement
- 1/8 NPT hole, plug included
- 2004 to 2014/2015 Nissan Titan
Always check your vehicle to verify differential and clearance.
2004 Titan: 2004 Titan trucks need the emergency brake cable bracket (Nissan part number 36522-8S10A) and the brake line clip (Nissan part number 24211-8S10A) from the 2005 Titan. We have these Nissan parts and sell them at Nissan list price to those who need them.
Does Not Fit Frontier. The same differential is found on 2005 & newer Frontier but this cover will not work. The fins will contact the spare tire on any down travel and the emergency brake line would require modification. We appreciate all the feedback from Frontier owners.

2006 Titan V8

2004 Titan Owners Need Clip and Bracket
2004 Titan owners will need the emergency brake cable bracket (Nissan part number 36522-8S10A) and the brake line clip (Nissan part number 24211-8S10A) from the 2005 Titan. We have these Nissan parts and sell them at Nissan list price to those who need them.
Our thanks to Antonio who sent us pictures of his installation on his 2004 Titan. He painted the as-cast cover primer black for a custom look.
Temperature Sensor Port
The cover has a 1/8 NPT port already machined for a temperature sending unit. A plug is included if an aftermarket temperature sensor is not used. The hole is located on the side of the cover, in the small boss 2/3 of the way down, at the 4 o clock position.
Level Check and Fill
The cover also has a level check/fill hole. The cover does not have a drain hole because Nissan provides a drain in the differential housing. A new set of mounting bolts are included and a magnetic plug is provided for the level check/fill hole.
The level check hole is located on the side of the cover for easy access when a sway bar is used.
PML Cover with Helwig Sway Bar
This cover will work with the Hellwig Titan sway bar (part #7669). In July 2006, Hellwig revised the design of this sway bar to allow more room for the differential cover.

PML Differential Cover Compared to Stock
These pictures compare the PML cover to the stock covers. The stock cover for 2004 is the one on the right in the pictures and it does not have any fins. The finned stock cover is for 2005 to 2014/2015 Titans.
