Chase from ECGS says Royal Purple is the worst gear oil that you can use. He recommends Lucas Dyno oil 85/140w

I like Red Line fluids. In the diffs, I use their 75W90 GL-5 gear oil. In the transmission and transfer case, I like MT-90.

My rear diff took right at 3. And I use Mobil1 75w90 in both different and transfer case.

I've never heard that about rp being shitty.

Front diff is a big allen head. Transfer case and rear diff fill and drain plugs are 24mm,and you do need the right crush washers.

What he said. Its nothing special, pretty dang easy. Front diff is a little bit more difficult and I used a funnel with a hose to make life easier pouring it in.

As far as the fill/drain plugs go, best bet is to give them a crack with a hammer flush on their faces. 99% of the time they will become loose enough to remove without a wrench. BE SURE TO REMOVE FILL PLUGS FIRST!!!
