    Thanks Ironman. Do you know what the 8.8 signifies? If it's inches, I believe the Raptor differential is considerably bigger.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe the Raptor has a 9.75" rear end.

    I thought so, but wasn't sure.
    Thanks, Hazzard and Nick!

    I like the ARE covers, but I am not sure the 8.8 will work with the 12-9.75 rear diff in the Raptors. You may want to confirm that before ordering. But Roger^^ can hook you up with a great price on them if they work.

    I wish those ARB covers had some cooling fins.

    I'm calling them directly to see if they make something for our trucks.
    I'll get back to you.

    I went with the AFE. It has internal and external cooling fins, magnetic dipstick and drain plug, as well as a sight glass. I paid ~$250 for it and couldn't be happier.
