A little help with my fluids

did a bunch of searching but just want to make sure. I am going to change out my Manual Tranny fluid, the Rear/Front Diff, and transfer case fluid. I was going to use Mobil 1 75-90 gear oil for it all. Sound OK? Anything else need to be added? its an 04 TRD

i'd get a second opinion on using the same all around. my mechanic (At work) said to use different in the front and rear. Not an expert though so wait for one of them to chime in

For the Transmission use Redline MT90... It is probably the single best thing I did to my truck. Shifts are 10 times smother, especially between 1st and 2nd. Redline uses a special friction modifier for the Syncro's and let me tell you, it works. MT90 is a little more expensive than most, but the extra 10 bucks you spend will be worth it. MT90 works so good in the transmission Redline will actually turn you away from even their own 75w90 gear oil in newer transmissions.

For your diff's any good quality 75w90 should be fine. I use Redline all around mainly because I was so impressed with the MT90 in my tranny.
