Superior Construction. This 8.8" Rear End Differential Cover is made from heavy duty gauge steel for strength and features a bright chrome finish that will be sure to attract attention. This chrome plated rear end cover comes complete with the necessary bolts and gaskets for installation.

Recommended Upgrade. When changing your differential cover it is recommended to upgrade to fresh Royal Purple Synthetic Gear Oil. You will need 3 quarts of Gear Oil.

Application. This Steel Rear End Differential Cover is designed to fit the 1979 to 2014 Mustangs equipped with the 8.8" rear end. Not for use on IRS equipped Mustangs. Will not fit 2013-2014 GT500.

    my rear end girdle cover was damaged because the previous owner must have jacked the car up by the cover which id never do. needed a quick replacement without spending alot of money. Found this chrome rear cover complete with the gasket and the bolts for a low price of $30.00 this item was stronger than i had thought, my chrome 8.8 cover arrived in about a day. Best 30.00 i ever spent. american muscle is my new favorite online mustang parts store.. thanks A.M.

    Great product for the buck!

    January 29, 2012

    I was leaking differential fluid so I had to change the gasket. This cover comes with the gasket and bolts also for not much more than you would normally pay for a gasket alone. It took me a couple of hours to install and it fits and looks great. Good product I highly recommend it. With free shipping there is nowhere else on the entire internet where you can get a deal like this! Great job American Muscle!

    Looks sharp!

    December 11, 2010

    Bought this as part of a complete rear-end rebuild on a 1995 GT. Really looks good- can be seen under the car. It's a good way of letting everyone know that you've got upgraded gears! The gasket that came with this was also better quality than the one in the gasket kit.

    Sweet rear end!

    December 08, 2011

    Installed my chrome differential cover in a couple of hours (due to difficulties with removing the fill plug). New cover came with all new bolts and gasket that fit perfectly. Filled differential with Royal Purple and had No leaks to deal with. Cover looks great and is stronger than original.

    Looks cool

    October 01, 2011

    Makes rear end look shiny and new. Maybe it makes my rear end more stiff but I can't tell for sure. If I had more loot, I woulda bought the one with the drain/fill holes and cool strong look. But for 30 bucks, ya can't beat it!

    Great cost saving diff cover. Perfect fit, 15 minute install, no leaks, looks good. For this price, you can replace these each time you replace the diff fluid.
