plac I found this:

CRC: Equa-Torque "Limited Slip Additive" (4 fluid Ounces)

but..

Applications: Should be used in conjunction with conventional GL-5 or HP level gear oils. DO NOT USE IN AMC JEEPS WITH QUADRA-TRAC.

plac i was gonna do my rear ends but then i read my tag that said "limited slip diff fluid only".. I just got the basic 80-90W gear oil, about 5 quarts. (just for rear to start with). I dont want to mess with it until I know I have the right stuff. I'll try and find some additive in my local Kragen/CSK..

is mine some kind of upgraded diff over the base, or does everyone have limited slip? Mine is a Dana 35 as far as everyone tells me. It has a rubber fill plug on the back, no metal plug.

might my front dana 30 also have that requirement or is that usually only for the rear?

big orange yj I use the lucas oil brand additive. I don't recall the specific name but someone at the parts store should b able to tell u.

RAGMAN here it is.. straight from manual:


Axle Differential (Front) Mopar
Gear & Axle Lubricant (SAE 80W-90) (API GL-5) or equivalent.


Axle Differential (Rear)

194 RBI (Model 35) and 216 RBI (Model 44) - MoparGear & Axle Lubricant (SAE

80W-90) (API GL-5) or equivalent. For trailer towing, use Mopar

Synthetic Gear & Axle Lubricant (SAE 75W-140) or equivalent. Models equipped with Trac-Lok require

an additive.


Rubicon 216 RBI (Model 44) - MoparSynthetic Gear & Axle Lubricant

(SAE 75W-140) or equivalent. Models equipped with Trac-Lok require an additive.



doesnt say what the heck the additive is or specify weight or anything that i can find yet.

10-13-2009 03:21 PM

plac isnt it about 2.5 bottles for each diff?
10-12-2009 09:50 AM
jpdocdave any 80w90 gear oil is fine, valvoline is usually everywhere and priced well. to be safe i'd get 6 bottles 5 will cover it but its hard to get all the fluid out sometimes, it helps to pour what you can't get out into another bottle and you can usually get most of it in there.
