Front & Rear Diffs...Little help from some gear-heads please!

I have a 2005 X. I found on another thread that the general thought is the torque specs should be 20-25lbs max for the cover bolts. The front takes 1.25 qts and rear 1.75 qts. I have also seen that if I have trac-loc, I need to add 4oz of friction modifier. How do I know if I have trac-loc? Does it look different? If it does, anybody got a picture? Pulling them off tomorrow at my buddies place. Any advice on anything I should look for is greatly appreciated. Thanks guys!

Assuming someone hasn't removed the tag, there will be a tag on the rear with the ratio that states add the modifier.

You can also jack up the rear and turn one wheel with the trans in N. If both wheels turn the same direction, you have the limited slip.

Yep, actually both tags will tell you. The long one along the drivers side bolts on the back of the dif will be designated as "LS" for limited slip, and the small tag on one of the bottom bolts will also warn you to use limited slip lube.
