Did this today, ended up putting 1.5 Quarts in (not wanting to over fill and not being experienced to go against the owners manual)

I ended up filling the dif up only to find that the drain gasket had fallen out.. had to drain and fill a 2nd time.. Kind of a pain in the ass but whatever.

You can put a hose in the end of the bottle. No the bottle doesn't really fit.

sorry but a little more specific please as to what you mean.
Hose on the nipple of the bottle, hold bottle out from underneath truck, other end of hose in diff, and squeeze it in, it's to thick to run in.

That might work if the hose is long enough. I didn't think there was very much space under there. The pump was $4.99 at the auto parts store. If I had to buy it every time, I would.

Yes.

FWIW I've changed my front and rear 3 times so far and been using 85-140 as recommended by ECGS with no issues.
