    Might have missed it somewhere, are these E lockers compatible with synthetic gear oil or does it have to be Dino oil?

    Hmmm . . .
    That's a bit off from the 75-90 were supposed to run. Any potential problems with that?

    I asked ecgs the same question, they said nope, and yeah possible worse gas mileage, but your rig looks similar to mine, are you concerned w gas mileage...i regeared to 4.56 and it is better than running stock viscosity, especially for wheeling according to ecgs

    Yeah, MPGs are always a concern to one degree or another. Can't imagine the viscosity making a huge difference in that regard. Just seems like if Toyota puts a specific weight in, that's what we should run. On the other hand, I'm not particularly concerned with the gears when it comes to Dino vs synthetic. I was just concerned with the locker, Dino vs synthetic. Bottom line, I'm probably over thinking it.

    I have both of my switches under my radio in a six hole switch plate. And I used the switch the locker came with.
