    I use Red Line 75w90NS GL-5 for the front diff and transfer case. I use to use 75w90 GL-5 when I had my LSD in the read, but with the locker, I'll be using the NS for all three.

    edit: cheapest place I've found to get Red Line oil is Jegs.

    Good writeup, in case you need it.

    Just did mine and used Mobil 1 75w-30.

    Take the spare down for a better pouring angle when you go to put the new oil in.

    i run mobil1 75w90 in both my diffs and transfer case. easier shifts into 4 wheel drive and with the locker too...it engages a bit better.
