This differential cover has oil fill/level check and drain holes to
make it easy to follow the 15K oil change interval that Dodge specifies
for the AAM axles used in 2003 and newer Ram 2500 & 3500 trucks.

option to have PML drill and tap the boss will need to be ordered over
the phone, not on-line.
