    As long as it's GL5 probably not gona hurt anything but you may have slightly lower fuel mileage due to it being thicker oil.

    If I told you the transfer case did NOT change between 2007 and 2012, would you believe me?
    And that in 2007 the recommended fluid was 75-90.

    Thanks everyone for answering my question on gear oil.
    My next question is, What should I be using for the transmission?
    It's a 2012 4 wd 6 cyl 4L? with 160,000 miles. I have never changed the fluid.
    As I mentioned in a previous post, the shop that is going to do the fluid change
    says his research indicated that because of a certain additive in the factory
    fluid, I should change the filter and re-use the fluid. Seems counterproductive
    to me. My appointment is for Monday morning.
    I will do the transfer case and diffs. myself.

    Assuming it's an automatic probably either Toyota WS or Valvoline MaxLife, there's a specific fill procedure (see the thread below) but note the specified check temperature was changed to 95-115F Per TSB 0129-08 (see the tsb attached below).
