      Comments about Dorman - OE Solutions Rear Differential Cover:

      The part had the gasket required to install. GREAT! The website and even talking to "help desk" did not indicate the gasket was part of the purchase. I was able to remove the additional gasket from my order at the time of pick-up. The part was an exact fit and a very straight forward replacement of a leaking/rusted cover. Painted, with internal magnet and no leaks

      Comments about Dorman - OE Solutions Rear Differential Cover:

      My 2000 F250 has over 321,000 miles on it. The differential cover began to leak. The original cover was very heavily rusted. I figured it was simply the seal or gasket but was not certain because of the heavy rust and potential for rust through on the cover. The Dorman replacemant was in stock and reasonably priced so I decided just to replace with new instead of cleaning up the old cover. The differential cover was a perfect fit. Gasket was included too. The Haynes manual and Ford both say to use just RTV silicone sealant instead of a gasket. Since the gasket was included, I used it along with a thin coat of RTV on both sides of the gasket. The whole job took under an hour and no leaks.

                      Perfect fit on Sterling 10.5" rear end. The included gasket is not needed, as Ford specifies RTV sealant for a gasket.
