    I have an 2008 Off-Road PreRunner. I just picked up 3 quarts of Mobil 1 Synthetic Gear Lubricant LS 75w-90. I know that I don't need to add the additive for the limited slip because I don't have it .. but it seems this oil has it made into it.

    Is it still OK for me to use :confused:

    Thanks for any help!

    No worries, that's what I have in my front and rear diffs (both open) and t-case. As far as I can tell mobil only makes the 75w-90 LS now.

    Make sure to take a pillow and some reading material with you to utilize as you are re-filling the differential.

    You have an offroad package, so you don't have a LSD.

    This.

    And don't worry bout it. I have had this in both diffs and my t-case for about 4k miles now, including about 1k of 4x4 use, and things are gravy.

    Thanks for the answers everyone! I just wanted to make sure I wouldn't harm the locker. I'm going to change it out in the morning.

    I'm going to have the Price is Right on as I do it :D
