Awesome reference Master4th

Brand wise, I just tried Royal Purple in mine. With the same weight motor oil as I was running before, there is a 10-15 psi increase in oil pressure. Runs smoother too, very pleased.

I only use Royal Purple Lubricants, Diffs, Transfercase Trans everything. I gained 2mpg just by doing the diffs and trans. Less drag from turning gears equals more gas mileage!

I wont ever run syn in my axles, currie did a study saying it actually increased tempuratures in the housing and my buddy who does diffs for a living won't warranty anything that has run in it.

But I do use RP Max-EX p/s fluid
