Ford #10-8.8 [Ford #10-8.8] - $250.00 : Mag-Hytec

This is what I would get. It holds more fluid, has a drain with a magnetic, a fill hole with an actual dipstick, isn't too flashy, etc.

always get a cover that has a drain plug

a lot less messy when you need to drain the differential oil

If you are on the street any of those aluminum ones would work but I would never take that Mag thing offroad, off any road...Actually they are the most expensive to buy and the least expensive to make!

I have a Riddler font dif cover and a Solid rear cover. The Solid is nice and has a nice coating over it. Any aluminum diff cover won't last and I do remember you wheel sometimes so I would go that route.

Only pic of the rear and it's nice and dirty.



Front is nice and dirty. I just painted mine black but some guys outline the skull thing in red and do the rest black, and other color combos, neat nonetheless. You could do emblem silver and black the rest or visa versa.

The SOLID ones are very nice and the best price. Like $80 or something.
