    I seriously considered it because of it's availability but after much research I still chose to order some Redline online.
    That's probably not really the informative answer you're looking for but it's all I've got.

    They do, but it does not ever have to be replaced. It's desired to never remove the transmission pan. I would only consider replacing it, if I was already pulling the pan for another issue.

    Any reason you went with the redline?

    As far as my research went, the three most popular options for diff fluid were Amsoil, Mobil 1 and Redline.
    I felt Redline was the best product out of those three.
    Just my opinion though.

    I was reffering to differential Fluid.
    I don't think the FSM suggests anything but OEM Toyota WS Fluid.

    Thanks renau001. I thought if there was a filter maybe I should get it changed. I like to change all the fluids and filters at around 500 to a 1000 miles on a new vehicle. Gets all the breakin material out of the systems.

    I have come to the same conclusion
    There doesn't seem to be a good substitute for the OEM stuff for the transmission
    Thanks to everybody for their input

    Considering the exact same gaskets are used on the FJ w.r.t. diffs/transfer, I'm going to guess with 99.99% certainty that the MT uses the same gasket as the transfer case, PN 90430-18008 (old number) which is cross listed with 90430-A0003. Will need 2x for drain and fill port.

    Here are the results after changing my rear diff fluid today and adding the Lucas Oil Anti-Squawk / Anti-Shudder Additive as well.
    The drain plug had lots of crap stuck to it.
    I was surprised as to how contaminated the fluid had become in 4300 kms.
    I could run my finger through the fluid and it would stir up significant amount of debris that would swirl around.

    Does the rear Diff need the Friction modifier additive?? OR just regular 75-90 weight? And how much for a 2016 Off Road Tacoma?

    Thanks

    Manual does not say anything about requiring a friction modifier.
    The reason I added something to mine is explained here: Hum on deceleration

    Fluid the manual states is 75W85 GL5 or equivalent.
    Rear Diff Volume - 3.1-4.2 qts (varies with model)
    Mine took the 16oz additive plus 4 quarts of fluid. I have a 2017 TRD Sport 6MT

    Anybody know if these are rated for 400 lbs. motorcycle? I looked through our 640 page manual and could not find it. Or do I need to install bed bolts PT278-35054. Thx TW

    Maybe this was addressed earlier, but everywhere I check for the engine air filter specified on the first page of this thread (Toyota part # 17801-0P180) it says the part is no longer available. Is there a new part and number for the engine air filter? Thanks.
