    ECGS recommends 85W-140 synthetic - it's what I am using right now.

    Well I live in Houston, it's hot as hell 75% of the time here, and the other 25% of the time I wouldn't consider cold. 75W-85 or 75W-90 would be idea if you lived where it was cold (like 30 degrees) 75% of the time.

    80W-90 would still work even in the south. Unless you're towing day in and day out, it's plenty thick enough for daily driving.

    Use 75W-90 for X-fer case and front, 80W-90 or 75W-90 for the rear.
