    It's kinda stupid how good it makes me feel. I've had the parts on my bench for 6 mths, along with UBJ, spindle gussets, lower control arm bushings and new alignment cams.

    Sadly, only had time for the LBJs.

    You got them tars on backwards, bud. Read the sidewall, it says "this side out" on (what should be) the outside of the tire.

    Redline MT90 in rear diff, transmission and transfer case, redline 75w90 in front diff and enos oil and Toyota oil filter for engine. Running smooth as silk now.
    Funny thing is when I drained to t-case the fluid in it was green?!? Never seen that before.

    You may not want MT90 in the rear diff, should really have the 75-90 and doesn't have to be anything special but I'm pretty sure it requires gl5 hypoid gear oil which mt90 is not.

    Thanks for the concern. I pulled vin at work and for 2004 90wt is what was called for and redline met the specs. Earlier models did call for 75-90, not sure why spec changed?Also partnered with some Toyota techs that validated it as well. I am more curious about the green stuff in the transfer case and am waiting until Monday to question techs about it.

    All our diffs are the same, I'd urge you to reevaluate that decision. There's a reason the GL5 used in the diff is so viscous and has decent tackyness. Transmission is considered lighterduty use than the conditions a differential sees. But don't take my word for it, check out what others have to say, including Red line themselves.

    https://www.redlineoil.com/product.aspx?pid=46&pcid=7

    Right on that page it says it is not a suitable replacement for GL5 and it is not for use in hypoid gearsets (what our differentials are)

    You made the right choice... I've had mine in the cab for awhile but have suspension coming this week so I'm gonna wait. Did you use locktite?

    I agree. I am going to look at it more as I saw redlines page last night after you got me thinking. I tow a lot so need good fluid, especially in rear diff.

    For $36 can't go wrong...been on a few weeks now and works great. I just used 2 -3x1 inch peice's of aluminum on both ends of the frame. The light bar is just about the exact width of the frame. It fit right in front of the radiator mounts. Thanks!!
