    Is this 75w90 diff oil any good? I have a 2015 Tacoma double cab pre runner xspx model and it has 78k miles I’m doing a full maintenance check since I just bought it, already done the oil and filter, trans fluid, pcv valve and now I’m doing the rear diff fluid! I had my work order me this kind and was just making sure it’s okay to use? Since Toyota doesn’t sell 75w85 diff fluid unless it’s in wholesale drums! And I can’t find it anywhere!! It’s a 2wd

    thanks y’all! Also any other xspx models here?

    It’ll work. I use Amsoil Severe Gear 75W90 in my Prerunner.

    I'm looking to refresh my fluids also, will this be the same stuff to use for your transaxles also on a 4x4? (I have a 2007 quadcab)
    How much will I need to get to do my differential and transaxles?

    Wow, great info IL Capo. Many thanks for that! Question...whats the 75w140 for?
    and why showing 2 different weights oil for the change (75w90, 80w90)?
