8.8 Rockcrusher diff cover, WA

About a year ago I bought a rockcrusher differential cover. Painted it blue, and finally went to put it on today. Turns out it's "too small" or "not deep enough" for my 8.8, and wouldn't allow the big gear to spin. I can either mill it out, or sell it. I don't want to mill it out because I just decided to use my old metal diff cover and I'm tired of taking off/putting on diff covers. SOOOO I'm gonna sell it. I think I originally bought it for like $87 + shipping. I'll probably ask maybe $50 + shipping? I painted it blue, and some of the paint is chipped from some scraping. I'll try to get a picture up as soon as I can. It even comes with the sticker it originally came with. I won't include the bolts because they suck. They were too soft, and a couple of them snapped.

Oh, and there's a very small gash/scrape on the inside of the cover where the gear dug into the cover. Nothing to really worry about, I think.

So yes, $50 + shipping. I am open to offers. If you would like, I can paint it black, but no guarantees on my paint job :(

Edit: pictures

Yeah, it's factory. And I emailed them yesterday.

Well, the receipt said "Ford 8.8", and the actual cover says "8.8" on it. It's 10 bolts like my differential, the same shape as my old cover.

Nope, not at all. I am very surprised, though.
