If you do a lot of towing, get the 2008 cover for your 10.5 sterling.


Otherwise, not really.

Yah, I have 3.73s. You will probably need longer cover bolts though. I did.

are you just wanting the shiny cover? Im a cheap *** i just pulled the cover, sand blasted it and then primerd and used rust enamel paint and painted it Chrome. Looks the same as the expensive covers for only $2. Unless ur going for something else, thats a thought.

Iv always been told to stay away from the Aluminum covers because of their heat transfer capabilities. They dont hold the heat as well. A friend of mine was in a burn out contest and melted his aluminum diff cover. It was actually a very good sight, the bottom half of the cover jus melted away.
