    So what's the consensus on the transfer case fluid?
    Ok to use the same Mobil1 75w90 used on the diffs or not?
    I tried looking for the OEM 75w Toyota fluid but it was on backorder at my dealership and its expensive AF.

    The new filter is correct. The used filter is for a 4Runner.

    I didn't make it through all the pages, but does anyone have any insight on spark plugs for the 3.5 l?

    Did you get this sorted? That dealer owes you some oil lab tests...

    I got too busy and never stopped by the dealership. I figured it wouldn’t go anywhere and I’d just get frustrated arguing with them. I’ll continue to do it myself once a year and I could always send out an oil sample at work if I was worried.

    I've researched this exact issue... well, too much, haha. :( I think people are playing it safe with the Ravenol, which is great.
    That being said, I'm going to do the front/rear diffs and transfer with amsoil severe gear SAE 75W-90. I believe it's fine and I'm not worried in the slightest. I do not believe that the contents of the above listed amsoil will eat away or soften any "softer metals", lol. I've never heard of that happening with ANY oil in ANY transfer cases or diffs and I don't even think it's possible.
    Besided, I like the "1 size fits all" approach with the oil and I've seen countless people running the amsoil severe gear in their diffs with no reported problems.
