The Original 3/8" Ruffstuff Diff Cover!
 
We have been selling these for over 6 years now here and elsewhere on the net, but our website is where you want to be.

Here are a list of reasons our stand above the rest!

Someone asked me about the added weight? They wanted to know about the added weight of the 3/8" material.....

Well, there are several answers to that question

#1 - It is only 2-4lbs heavier a 1/4" cover
#2 - It is not Rotating weight
#3 - It is Un-sprung weight
#4 - Possibly the best answer in the era of top heavy vehicles, It is adding weight to the lowest portion of your vehicle!

Plus the peace of mind knowing you have the strongest cover made out there protecting your gears and lockers.....

Our diff Covers pretty much speak for themselves. But here are a few important points to consider when purchasing a differential cover......

#1 - Real Thickness before you start paying more for additional thickness. Our Covers are ALL AT LEAST 3/8" thick at no extra cost to you. Now 5 other manufacturer uses 3/8" plate. It seems we had a good idea.

#2 - Materials they are made of. ALL of our covers are made of A50 (536) plate steel, it costs' about .07-.10 more per pound but the additional strength is worth it.

#3 -Fill plug placement. We put the fill plug in the area you want it to be so you can easily check the fluid level. It is above the stock plug position but not so high so as to allow overfilling. Overfilling will just blow out seals, don't do it!

#4 - Finish Machining. We all know that when steel is heated it moves, there is no changing that no matter how well it is jigged. We ALWAYS machine our covers flat after welding. Over the years several other companies have finally admitted that their steel mooved just like everyone elses and have started machining theirs also! Any Welder with any experience can tell you that steel moves no matter how well it is tied down!

#5 - Welding. All of our Differential Covers are welded inside and out, yes, that doubles the time spent welding them, a cost other companies don't care to spend. We do it to insure absolute strength. Remember, any welder can have a bad day so welded twice makes way too much sense to not do.

#6 - Shipping Cost to you is $12.35 for 1 but we can ship 2 for the same cost, that is for anywhere in the US & Territories including Guam, Puerto Rico, US Virgin Islands, Hawaii, & Alaska! We ship about 20 a week to Canada for $36 each.....

#7 - The JPFORM 10% discount. It just makes a good deal better. Use it on anything we make! And our covers start at $110 each so you can see the savings.....We give this discount so we can find out where our sales are coming from, it only makes sense to know, those that don't use it found us through Google and that helps us keep YOUR price low!

#8 - Variety. We make 10 different covers and are adding more all the time, we want to be your cover manufacturer! 14 Bolt, D70, D60, D44, D35, D30, Ford 8.8, Chrysler 8.25, Ford Sterling, Dodge 9.25,& the Toyota 9.5" are available now, lots more still on the design table!

#9 - Guarantee. Our Differential covers & all of our products have Always had an Unconditional Full Lifetime Guarantee! We don't have to say no BS, there isn't any.....

#10 - Fit. Our covers fit every stock steering assembly made and we have not run into an aftermarket setup it dosen't fit either. Our covers are made to fit very close to stock internal specs to retain their positive oiling qualities.

Yes, I started this and all the rest of our posts over again, we had over 30,000 views and that just isn't fair to all the new guys that just started making 3/8" thick covers ;) We thought we might give them an even chance...!

Dan Fredrickson 02-03-2011 11:57 AM

Another day! Today we are going through way too many checklists for KOH, if you go be sure to stop by.


BTW, we are only taking 5 down to the Hammers, 8 are staying in the shop keeping this end running while the rest of us are gone...

I have been running one of these on my 8.8 for a while now and all I can say is PURE beef. Great product Dan.

I have both a front (Dana 30) and the rear (Chrysler 8.25) covers and these are super beefy and well made!

Love these things for the piece of mind. Service was excellent to, got them to me here in Canada in record time!

What's the reccomended hardware for the D30 with countersunk holes? I ordered one a while ago and haven't gotten around to picking it up. The cover on my 8.8 has been holding up very nicely, though.

Hi Dan :wavey:
I finally built my rear end with Super 44s and an ARB locker.
It's all well protected by a Ruffstuff truss and cover :thumbsup:
Thanks for the great stuff! :tea:

If you got the countersunk it will come with it...
