Description Technical Specs

Because the Dana 44 differential has so many uses and variations, read this pdf file on PML Covers for Dana 44 differentials for more information on what to check before replacing your stock cover.

The Dana 44 differential is found on many vehicles beginning in the 1940´s and is still used today. For example, Jeep CJ 1941-1975 rear ends and Ford Bronco 1966-1979 front ends are typically Dana 44s. There are several versions of Dana 44 differentials so please check your vehicle carefully to verify shape, number of bolts, clearance, and level check hole location.

This cover has three holes. The bottom hole is a drain hole. The plug at the top is used to fill the differential. The one on the side is left open when filling to let you know when the differential is full. Once oil starts to drip out the side hole, it's full.

Do not use this cover on: 2009 and newer Jeeps or GM front ends.

In 2009, Jeep changed the design of the rear axles and added a vent so a PML cover will not work on newer models.

If you are planning to use this on a front differential, please check the dimensions on this cover and be sure you have enough room for a larger than stock cover in all positions. The steering linkage moves forward and backward (in addition to side to side) as you turn the steering wheel so you'll need to figure out how far from the diff cover it is when it's closest.

There are many different versions of Dana 44 differentials. The sizes, shapes, and level check hole locations vary. See also our Dana 44 Front Fill and Dana 44/226 covers for other possibilities. PML does not make a rear or front end cover for the Dana 44/213mm or Dana 44/200mm applications as yet. The 213 and 200 both have 12 bolts. Be sure to check the number of bolts, shape, level check hole location and if you have clearance for a larger cover.

This cover was installed on the front end and back end of MBRP's custom Jeep 2008 JK Wrangler Rubicon. See a slide show of the installation. MBRP has lifted and modified this Rubicon. On a stock Jeep, the sway bar is likely to hit a deeper cover.

Sway Bar On a Wrangler

Some vehicles have a sway bar ½–inch from the stock differential cover. Unless the sway bar is moved or modified, this is too close to accomodate a larger aftermarket rear end cover.

Dana 44 front fill diff cover (p/n 5055) is on the left and the Dana 44 top fill diff cover (p/n 9516) is on the right:
