Been reading extensively on changing the gear fluids. Looking and buying synthetic oils for them.
Got GL5 synthetics for the front & rear diff and the transfer case. All 75w90 and cost me average of $9 a quart for Castrol synthetic and Mobil one synthetic. Now just need to find 3 quart of the gearbox oil.
Manual says GL4 75w90 and everything I find in the local stores is GL5 so far.
Seems most on the board are saying to use Amsoil or Red line. Amsoil seems to be an online order from them. The few suggestions I've seen on Redline is to go to Summit to get it. Amsoil online is coming out to $18.76 a quart for me and Red Line from Summit is coming out to $17.80 a quart.
Just wondered if there was any other source in which they could be had any cheaper per quart? Not worth the 6 month preferred customer on Amsoil just for 3 quarts as that is all I need to buy.
Any national chains carry the Red line (MT90 I think it was)? I'm in New Mexico so that might limit it too, but thought I'd ask.
Seems like with the number of people/Tacomas on this site they should be giving us a direct buy lol.
Anyway, any help appreciated. If there is a post that I missed on this while searching then first, sorry I missed it, second, could you pop a link on as happy to go read it.
PS Any NM ABQ/RR locals who know of a mom and pop even that has it at a good price please chime in.
