    My 2006 4WD 6-spd is just about to turn over 60k miles. In celebration of her great service and my wanting to get many more thousands of miles out of her, I want to do a full fluid swap. Motor oil (obviously), front and rear diff oil, manual tranny oil and transfer case. I'm thinking about going synthetic for it all as I already run synthetic motor oil. Any suggestions on brands or types of oil? Any other maintenances you would suggest? I did the plugs at 55k.

    I swapped all of my lubrication fluids, except for ATF at 20k. I put Mobil 1 in for Engine oil, both diffs and the transfer case. Wasn't too expensive and I have never had an issue with their products.

    With the V6 engine, according to the service manual you need to have the valve lifters adjusted at 60k. I'll be taking my truck to the dealer to have that done when I get to that point because I have no idea how to do it and want to make sure it is done correctly. That does not apply to I4 engines

    I used the amsoil mt-90 in my 6spd, it seems to shift better.
