The PML Nissan differential cover features sand-cast aluminum
construction with thick walls and gasket flange for strength and a
secure seal and oversized fins and extra capacity for cooling. PML
designed the casting to work with the brake line clip and bracket that
attach to the differential cover so the install is an easy bolt-on
This cover fits 2004 and newer Nissan Titan trucks and holds 0.75
quarts over 2005 & newer stock capacity to increase cooling. It is 1
1/4 inches deeper than the stock 2005 & newer cover, 2 inches
deeper than the stock 2004 cover. Click here for a PDF file with dimensions.
2004 Titan owners will need the emergency brake cable bracketand the brake line clip from the 2005 Titan. We have these Nissan parts.
Our thanks to Antonio who sent us pictures of
his installation on his 2004 Titan. He painted the as-cast cover primer
black for a custom look. Click on image to view larger.
The same differential is found on 2005 & newer Frontiers with
V6 and manual transmission and Nismo model with automatic transmission.
Some Frontier owners have purchased this cover and with many
modifications have installed it on a Frontier. PML does NOT recommend this.
PML does not have any experience with the Frontier but we have been
told that the upper half of the fins on our cover will contact the spare
tire on any down travel and the emergency brake line requires
modification. We truly appreciate all the help and feedback from
Frontier owners who have measured, sent us pictures, and made
The cover has a 1/8 NPT port already machined for a temperature
sensor (a plug is included if a temp sensor is not desired). It is
located in the small boss ⅔ down the cover.
The cover also has a level check/fill hole. The cover does not have
a drain hole because Nissan provides a drain in the differential
housing. A new set of mounting bolts are included and a magnetic plug is
provided for the level check/fill hole.
This cover will work with the Hellwig Titan sway bar (part
#7669). As of July 2006, Hellwig has revised the design of this sway bar
to allow more room for the differential cover. Be sure when ordering
from Hellwig or other suppliers that you will be receiving the updated
design. Click on image to view a larger image in a separate window to
see a picture of this sway bar on a Titan with PML diff cover. For
