    2016 Ford F150

    Warren installed this cover on his 2016 Ford F150 5.0L 4x4 truck. He reported that "removing the spare tire made access to the diff cover much easier, as depicted in the photos. The only time consuming issue was removing an excessive amount of thread locker and silicone material from the bolt holes Ford had applied. Again all of the supplied information, hardware and the PML diff cover it's self installed perfectly." Our thanks to Warren his comments and pictures.
