    Used for diffs, transmission, and if I recall correctly, transfer case to transmission.

    I'm only 2wd so I'm just assuming that's what'd be used.

    FIPG means Form In Place Gasket. It’s like a RTV sealant that you use

    As mentioned above yes, a gasket maker in other words.

    It begins to settle right away so don't open it up until you're ready to use it.

    Get the one I posted above; best you can use.

    Why are we still talking about gaskets and gasket makers... lol


    There is no gasket (and you do not need gasket maker) between trans and T-case.

    It's a metal to metal connection. What are we trying to seal here?

    You have trans fluid in trans and gear oil in T-case. Nothing flows between the two assemblies.

    Exactly why I was thrown off lol but wanted to make sure that if the OP did anything relating to the transmission, that he use what Toyota uses; the FIPG.
