    Do they happen often?

    I'm going to be in need of the front and rear diff and the manual tranny fluid change. Anyone want to help or volunteer their time to make sure it's done right? Get too meet a few people and hang out, shoot the shit, kick tires etc?

    nice. thanks. aside from hijacking my own shit...what's the best oils to use in the diffs and the tranny. We have the toyota manual, the ones who "really" know, the things your read, and then there's bobistheoildguy etc etc.

    I usually show up with a 6pk of kiltlifter.

    It probably says in the owners manual. I'm too lazy to go down and get it right now though.

    I am so in need of changing the oil in both my diffs, too. I'm onboard with this so we all do it right. I know there's a couple of great write-ups on this, including what oil to use. It's a 90 weight if I'm not mistaken. Would love to do the tranny fluid and probably oil all at the same time, too.

    Over 114k and NEVER done the diffs or tranny fluid :eek::anonymous:

    We need to find a place to host this, then put up a vote for a date. Anyone have plenty of space for half a dozen trucks doing fluid changes all at one time?

    I'm sold. Is this any harder than a regular oil change? Drain the old, pour in the new? I have no idea if my diffs or tranny fluid has ever been changed, I got the truck at 145k miles.... :notsure:

    What part of town are you guys gonna meet up at?
