Temperature Sending Unit Optional Machining

The cover has a location on face that can be machined for a temperature sensor. The option to have the cover drilled and tapped will need to be ordered over the phone, not on-line, and there is a machining charge. The temperature sending unit will stick out perpendicular to the face of the service. Please call to order or for more information.

Sway and Pan Hard Bars

Stock rear axle cover on a 2011 Ram 1500

In 2009, Dodge added pan hard and sway bars behind the differential cover on Ram trucks.

This image shows the stock cover on a 2011 Dodge Ram 1500 4X4 with the ZF differential.

This PML cover has been installed on many of these newer model year trucks although there is not much space. Dropping the sway bar during installation is helpful. See Installations, below.

Sport models have different suspension. This could change clearance.

Configurations vary so check your vehicle before ordering.

Dodge Dakota 4x4 with a PML differential cover and transmission pan

2006 Dakota

These pictures are from Paul who installed a PML differential cover and low profile transmission pan on his 2006 Dakota, 4x4, 4.7L (PML part number 11078). Thanks to Paul for sending us pictures. See more pictures on our facebook page. You do not have to join facebook to view.

2003 Ram 1500

This installation is on a 2003 Ram 1500 4x4 with the 5.7 Hemi. The owner wanted a custom look so he purchase the as-cast finish and took the PML cover to a powder coater in his area. He selected a texture red powder coat and brushed the powder coating off the top of the fins so they stand out.

2012 Ram 1500

Dodge began adding a pan hard bar and a sway bar behind the stock cover around the 2009 model year for Ram 1500 trucks. We have heard that it is a close fit with the bars.

Images courtesy of www.ramforumz.com. According to the posting, the axle fore and aft movement is controlled by the upper and lower control arms, so the 3/8 inch clearance is not a problem. You might need an account to read the post.

The as-cast finish PML cover was custom painted red to match the truck. Then the ends of the cooling were exposed for a better look.

The pictures of the cover installed show the placement of the pan hard and sway bars and the clearance to the PML cover.
