Rear Diff Cover

Okay so this is what I am hearing so I figured i would post this question. I am hearing that the 2008 Aluminum diff cover will directly fit our rear end. Is this true, if so I will definitely purchase one since the closest model costs 200.00 versus the 49.00 at the dealer.
Also, what is the major difference between the 20" tires on the new f series that makes them not a direct bolt on to an '02 Excursion?
Thanks in advance for the help.

Yes, you will need to get longer bolts. The pan is thicker than the stock one you have now.

Just make sure you get the pan for the sterling 10.5 SRW.

Are you doing this for looks for function? The 08 cover is looks and no function where as the bigger PML and Mag Hytec hold more oil and will have function and looks.

On your wheel question the backspacing changed when they went to coils up front in '05.

Not entirely true, the 08 is finned AL, and the older one is stamped steel. I saw a drop of about 20 degrees in MAX temp when switching.

Was that pulling, Joe? What do your temps run normally? I tow a lot and I switched because my old steel one was rusted pretty bad, probably due to the heat. I figured it couldn't hurt...
