    2009 DC TRD Off-Road 4x4 V6 6-speed
    Legal Florida Tint all-around, 1.5" add-a-leaf, bilstein 5100 rear shocks, Light Racing Coilovers, Removed secondary air filter, K&N airfilter, Amsoil 100% synthetic motor oil, Amsoil synthetic severe gear in rear differential, Differential breather mod, Painted rims and logo's black, amsoil oil filter
    sooo since i've gotten my 2009 TRD Off-Road 4x4 Double cab 3000 miles ago, i've gone through mud, water, sand, and pretty much whatever else you find here in florida. and through some research i have decided to extend the rear differential breather as well as change the fluid to synthetic,

    Now with the rear locker, is there a breather for it that i would need to extend as well and could i just use a T fitting to join it with the rear diff snorkel?

    and i've heard about a chatter that comes with changing to synthetic, would it be safe to use amsoil 75W-90 severe gear oil in the rear?

    As always, thanks for any advice :wave:

    nope...no sepaarate breather for just the locker.......just the breather for the diff itself. and 75w90 is fine for the locker....needs no additives.

    ese loco, you're in vero? I went to high school there. I was kind of shocked when I saw that because most of the people on here seem to be from the west. Thanks to tacomaman06, I now know I too have to make time for the breather mod and fluid change.

    yeah and it's prob just as boring as when you were here haha i just graduated and am ready to get out.

    But back on the topic,

    You sure a synthetic like amsoil will work? I've searched around and it seems people seem to be have a problem with synthetic's in their rear differential and i just don't want the same so if anyone has experience with this product in their rear diff, let a brotha know haha

    you are fine with it in the rear locker......its the limited slip differential folks were having a problem with.....namely mobil1 cause it really doesnt have enough friction modifiers in it.
