    Limited slip additive is in the oil, so you do not need to add any additional. If you do, no harm, no foul - the diff gears won't care. Only your wallet will.

    Valvoline oil is fine, as is Lucas (recommended by ECGS.) Stick with name brands of oil as opposed to parts store brands (unless you can be certain who made it.) Toyota brand is fine as well, albeit more expensive.

    Drove it to the store (had to find towel paper) and filled the tank before the gas stations lost power.
    I haven't lost power as I type this.

    The rides great now, don’t know how much the bushings contributed to that because I basically replaced the entire front end...
    The white line bushings were a much better quality than the stock ones though. I know of one other guy who’s running the white line’s and he said it was much smoother off-road. I’ve put just under 100miles on them just going to work and back.

    Came with MGM topper. Added FJammer stereo. LED Bed lights on AOB Flux Capacitor Switch. Added AOB Spy Mode switch for TBD lighting, stay tuned.
    Changed the oil in my R155 transmission. When I bought the truck a couple years ago it seemed like it was leaking a bit from the output shaft. But it actually hasn't done that for several months, so I worried I was ridiculously low. I bought a new seal a while ago, but never got around to using it, so I figured I'd drain, change the seal and refill with redline MT90 all in one shot.
    Well, my puny arms couldn't get the driveshaft bolts loose from the differential flange (even with a cheater bar), so no output seal replacement for me. I went ahead and just filled the transmission anyway. I had no pump, so I filled it through the shifter. (And cleaned my shift boot to boot).
    I was pretty surprised that even though it was level, gear oil started dripping out of the fill hole when I pulled the plug, with that in mind it got me thinking, maybe it wasnt leaking from the seal after all, and actually leaking from the breather from being overfilled, it seemed oily up on top of there, too. I originally thought maybe it had stopped leaking because it just got too low and I was going to mess up my tranny if I kept driving like that. So I don't know what was going on.
    Upon filling it, it took 2.7ish quarts like the manual said it would before it started dripping from the fill hole. But when I emptied my oil pan, it only drained about 2.2 quarts, so I'm not sure how it was dripping out the fill hole and only drained 2.2 quarts, but took 2.7 new quarts to fill. I did spill some, but definitely not a half quart.

    Either way, it shifts fantastic and I don't have as much shudder anymore when I ease the clutch out like it did before. I wish I had done this sooner, it would have been a much more fun truck to drive.

    If you replace the washer, it will be a full drain and fill. Take the fill plug off first before the drain. Just in case the fill plug causes you problem.
