    Are you guys running synthetic or heavy duty Lucas in that weight? I can’t seem to find Lucas synthetic in 85w-140.

    getting 5.29s this week and i’m pumped! but what’s the preferred gear oil people are using aside from the nitro branded one?


    i contacted nitro and they said “Anything 75-90 to 85-140 gl5”

    Few pages back has a link explaining what weight, why non synthetic, and some.of it leans a touch towards opinion on brands.

    after talking to others and some professional mechanics i’ll be using redline 75w90 after my break in miles are done. So my question is to anyone using a full synthetic that’s similar how often are you changing the diff oil?


    or should i just go by OEM standards in the manual???

    I’ll be switching to full synthetic 140-250 once I drive into Africa next winter, it all depends on how hot it this and how heavy you are. Our truck weighs 6,500 lbs empty and when loaded up will peak at probably 7,300

    I recommend 85-140 and change it every 100k. If you run 75-90 then I would change it more often.

    I think the severe duty recommendation is every 15k, so very 30,000 is not unreasonable

    Installed gears yesterday! Never made it over 14.5 mpg with stock gears (and 33" tires)20190914_075055_HDR.jpg . First little trip with economical driving and I'm supper happy. I'm going to wait 500 or 1000 miles before hard accelerating.
