10.25 carrier and 10.5 carrier same?

I found a 10.25 detroit locker and want to install in my 2000 superduty. Is the carrier the same or will I need new ring and pinion for 10.25?

They are the same because that is what I did when I had mine installed.

Okay here's a real question for you...will a diff cover off of a 10.5" fit on a 10.25" axle?

Yep, there has been a lot of people getting the finned aluminum rear cover for an 08 and it will fit all 10.5 and 10.25 axles.

Yes the only difference between the 10.25 and 10.5 is the ring gear size.

Ring gear size and inner pinion bearing size are the differences between the 10.5" and 10.25"

The inner pinion bearing is taller to make up for the 0.25" difference in ring gear diameter. Other than that, the housing is the same as are the rest of the internals.

Re: 10.25 carrier and 10.5 carrier same?

I was asking because I thought of upgrading to the 08 dif cover too. Only cost my buddy $36 or so from the dealer. I ran over to a screw supply shop to pickup the longer bolts for it. It came out looking good which is why I thought of doing mine too...Thanks guys!
