How often are you off road and what type of wheeling do you do?

I used to work on a "shaker" back in the day while working construction and we greased the fittings every day. To date I've kept this in mind while playing off road and like climbing over rocks and hills so my parts are moved a little more than usual. I try to grease after a heavy event. If I'm just on road I tend to play it by ear.

As far as Synthetic oil goes, I'm not familiar. I've always run old dinosaur blood in everything I own.

I don't understand why people can't just answer the question!

I grease at the oil changes or after I do any mudding or water crossing.

The only type I run is synthetic. The brand is up to you.

Asking questions that have already been posted numerous times clogs up the forum's servers. A search should be the first step, then post. It keeps the mods/admins happy.

That is true, but we need to be understanding towards the people who are newer on the forum.

Oil is hotly debated, as you can see
FWIW, I run synthetic RP. AMSOil is another popular high end oil

I grease my joints (All 928234324 of them now that I lifted it) every time I change the oil.



Also, there's some tables from the FSM. "Lubricate the steering and suspension ball joints" aka grease the zerks. Shows every 3k miles (just like oil changes should be). But if you go offroad or put heavy use on them, I'd at least check them. If I was in water, I'd check them real hard.

Hey y'all, I was just Trolling through the forums and saw this and my dilemma popped in my head. I went to go get gear oil for my diffs and T-case, but couldn't find what weights or anything to go by. I'm sure I could find it out for the T-case, but for the diffs I couldn't. There's one that's a lighter weight (74+) with the designation "TT" along with it and the other had just a number closer to the hundreds. I have no idea how to tell the difference. The guy at oreillys saw that if I have the non TT version and switch, or vice versa, it will damage my seals. Can y'all help? I don't have a manual (1999 TJ SE 2.5L 4-banger, 185k), but I do have a Haynes manual for it, doesn't specify.
