    Red Line everywhere.

    But, any gear fluid will do.

    Same truck as yours except one year newer and after much looking at comparisons and specs., I ordered Amsoil syn. GL4 75W90 for the trans . (Manual recommends GL3 or GL4 not GL5) and Amsoil syn. 75W85 GL5 in the rear diff. Sorry, I have not done the job yet but I know it is harder to find GL4 fluids as most auto suppliers only have GL5. I think Redline of the same viscosity would be good as well but Redline dealers are not so common in Canada. I ordered my Amsoil online from the Canadian distributor and got a good deal with free shipping.
