New ARB Differential Covers for Ford 8.8″, Chrysler 8.25″ and GM 10-Bolt
Since being released in late 2006, the red ARB differential covers can be found on trail and competition vehicles in just about every part of the world. ARB is happy to announce that the ARB differential covers are now available for 3 more axle models; the Ford 8.8″, Chrysler 8.25″ and GM 10-Bolt. Each of these applications will be available in red or black powder coating.
ARB’s Diff Cover will protect your differential against the hazards of impact during competition or extreme off road use and are designed to counteract flexing of the axle assembly When off road, it is inevitable that obstacles will be encountered that could potentially inflict expensive damage on your differential. To prevent this, ARB’s Differential Cover is available for a range of vehicle models, and has been specifically engineered to protect the differential and ring & pinion set from any off road hazards.
- High tensile nodular iron structure protects the differential and ring & pinion set from off road obstacles
- Computer optimized cross brace design increases the structural rigidity of the whole axle
- Approach/departure angle optimized by angled exterior surface
- Prolonged carrier bearing life due to extra support to the bearing alignment.
- Top quality, high power neodymium magnets are used in both the drain plug and the dipstick to collect any metallic particles in the oil. This makes the dipstick an easy location to be checked for tell-tale signs of internal damage or water contamination without the need to drain the oil.
New Gear Break In is an important step. ALL new ring & pinion gear sets must be properly broken in to prevent damage & premature failure.
Improper gear break in procedures may cause overloading and overheating of the ring and pinion gears as well as break down of the gear oil. Failure to properly break-in a new gear set can be identified by inspection, and may void the manufacturer’s warranty.
If you’re replacing the ring & pinion gear set, don’t plan on heading up over that mountain pass or hooking up that heavy trailer just yet….. Following the simple steps outlined below before you head out can prevent potential noise issues or gear damage.
After driving the first 15-20 miles at around 60 mph, it is best to stop and let the differential cool completely. Maintaining a speed below 60 mph and driving conservatively for the first 100 miles is also advised. The gear oil should be changed after 500 miles. We recommend that you drive at least 500 miles before any heavy use or towing. During the first 45 miles of actual towing, only drive 10-15 miles at a time before stopping to let the differential cool.
These steps are necessary to prevent damage to the new ring & pinion gear. Any heavy use or overloading of the differential during the first 500 miles may cause irreparable damage to the gear set.
Again, IMPROPER BREAK-IN CAN BE IDENTIFIED BY INSPECTION AND MAY VOID THE MANUFACTURER’S WARRANTY.
