    Hey guys, I'm going to go the lazy route and get royally flamed, but what differential fluids do I need to get for my truck? I read through some of the diff change out sticky, but that's a lot of pages.

    I have 90k miles on my 08 v6 4x4 6 speed with no lsd or lockers. Havent done much other than oil changes and filters. I figure it is in dire need of a swap out. What brand and how much for each location do I need? Should I swap transmission fluid while I am at it as well? How much and what kind do I need of that if I do it?

    I figure since I will be under there monday hopefully putting my lift on, I had better take care of it before I forget again.

    I just ran synthetic 75/9 I think. Your owners manual will tell you what to put in there. If your tranny has never been flushed I would do it also.

    If all you have done is oil and filter changes you are due for alot of work. Trans, front and rear diff, t-case, spark plugs, coolant flush, brake flush, power steering flush, brake inspection and flush. For fluid type and capacity refer to pages 406-409 of your owners manual or http://www.toyota.com/t3Portal/document/om/OM35898U/pdf/8_1.pdf
