This PML cover for Super Duty Ford trucks and SUVs with the Sterling 10.25 or 10.5 inch ring gear features a traditional straight fin design and round shape.
- Extra capacity
- Heavy duty sand cast aluminum construction for thick walls to add strength
- Machined gasket flange to provide a uniform clamping force for a secure seal
- Drain hole and magnetic drain plug included
- Similar shape to stock cover
- Fins for heat dissipation
We have one of these covers (without fill and level check holes) in a polish finish on SPECIAL.
This PML rear cover fits the Sterling 10.25 or 10.5 inch ring gear differential. It can replace the stock 12 bolt cover. Some possible applications are:
- Ford F-250, 1989 to 2016, 2017 and newer models with 12 bolt stock cover, for 14 bolt cover, see PML Dana M275,14 Bolt Cover
- Ford F-350 single rear wheel, 1989 to 2016, some 2017 and newer models (if you have a Dually, see PML Dana 80 differential covers)
- Ford Excursion, 2000 to 2005
Always check your vehicle to verify differential and space available for a larger cover. Because configurations vary, PML cannot guarantee fitment.
Needing more clearance: PML makes a pattern fin Ford 10.25, 10.5 differential cover for those wanting a custom look or have a clearance concern.
2017 and F250 later trucks with 14 Bolt Rear Differential Cover: In 2017 Ford introduced heavy duty option with a Dana M275 rear differential. The stock cover for the Dana M275 has 14 bolts, not 12 like the Ford 10.25/10.5 cover. See PML Dana M275,14 Bolt Cover.
2017 and F350 later trucks with 14 Bolt Rear Differential Cover: See PML Dana M300,14 Bolt Cover.
2001 Ford F350
Universal Transmission in New Mexico installed PML differential covers and transmission pan on this 2001 Ford F–350 4WD. The truck is lifted so the heavy duty PML covers with the black powder coat and shaved fins add a great look in addition to extra capacity.
Front Cover for 4WD Vehicles
PML makes front end covers for these trucks. The corresponding front differential is a Dana 50, 60 and the stock cover has 10 bolts.
PML makes a cover for pre 1999 trucks with the larger ring gear and one for the 1999 and later trucks with steering linkage close to the stock cover.
Inside of PML Cover
The inside of the PML cover is smooth and round. It is shaped similar to the stock cover.
Included with Cover
This PML differential cover ships with new mounting bolts, plug for fill hole, and a magnetic drain plug. Here is an example:
This shows the contents of the box for this PML cover in the cast finish. The other finishes would be the same except that the cover would be in a different finish.
Drain and Optional Machining for Temperature Sending Unit
Drain is on the bottom and a magnetic drain plug is included. The level check is on the differential housing.
This cover can be machined for a temperature sending unit. The boss on the right side can be drilled and tapped. This is an option and there is a machining charge. The standard size is 1/8 NPT.
