check out Ruff Stuff... My D30 cover from them has a 1/2 inch ring around it and counter sunk bolts to help stiffen the center chunk

Cut the ears off an IRS Ford Explorer rear axle cover. I've seen it on a Ranger before and it gets the job done.

We are the advertiser on the Ranger forum, we have made those for 5 years and they and the rest of our covers all have a lifetime guarantee! Thanks

I'd go with Ruffstuff over Solid. Solid is a cast cover, can't be repaired if it were to break and you can't weld stuff to it like hydro assist and what not. Steel 3/8" cover is all you should ever need.

Both my front D60 and rear 14blt covers and my pinion guard are RUFFSTUFF
My old mans front D44 cover and 9" pinion guard are RUFFSTUFF.
I wouldn't have it any other way.
