Not sure where to post this. So I will just post in the general section. I'm looking for affordable differential covers (for both the front and rear of my '02 F250) that have a drain hole. I don't care about chrome or looking fancy. I primarily just want the drain hole for ease of maintenance. The Mag-Hytecs are nice, but I'm not sure I'm ready to spend $250+ for each cover. If you guys know of some other nice, affordable options please let me know....Thanks

These are heavy duty bare steel ready for paint or powdercoat and customizable for drain and fill plugs. I'm pretty sure you have a Dana 50 front but it uses the same cover as the Dana60/70.

Thanks. That one looks nice. It lists it as 2003-2007. Will that fit my 2002? Do they offer a front version?

Last time I crawled under mine I thought about changing the front too. But it looks like there would be some clearance problems with the cooling fins and some suspension parts. & really how fast do I go and what loads am I pulling in 4*4 mode to heat up the front diff anyway. Most of my 4*4 is 20 degrees or colder & not towing.

Don't know if the same axle was on the 2002. Someone will chime in.

as often as they need fluid changes = not very .. just pull the covers and clean them out better than any lower drain plug will do

How bout this?

Riffraff Diesel: 08 Superduty Rear Diff Cover

You will need some longer bolts too. But those can be picked up at your local hardware store.

this does look nice, just wish i'd have found it 2 years ago before FOMOCO did my rear cover - to the tune of about $85....adding up their costs is only $127....not too shabby....

yeah, how about a front one....do they offer 1 for that app. too? i am just to lazy to look myself, thought i'd ask.....lol
