    SO how long can you go if you change the Diffrential Fluids, Xfer Case, and manny trans oil to sythetics such as Amsoil SG or Redline 75W-90 and MT-90

    I know it's every 30K on Dino oil, would syn extend that interval or change every 30.

    Also, lubbing the drivetrain throught he zerks is every 5K?

    Thanks.

    It depends on how you use your truck. Dusty conditions and water fording require more frequent changes/checks. So does towing.

    Only way to tell is to get Oil Analysis done.
    If they say the protection factors and life span indicators are good in the oil you drain- Go a bit longer and then get to analyzed again.
