Going to do a full service on the truck. Know about engine oil. Have a bit of a grey area on transmission. I am thinking GL5 front and rear diffs but cant put this into gearbox so GL4 goes in yes? Also the amounts for each application please.

Thanks in advance :thumbright:

Hi Bounce :)
Done exactly this job last weekend so have the info :clappy:
Front axle SAE 140W API GL-5 (2 1/4 pints req'd). I couldn't get a straight 140W grade but put in SAE 85W/140 grade.
Transmission SAE 75W/85 API GL-4 (8 5/8 pints req'd).
Transfer box DEXRON ATF III automatic transmission fluid API GL-4 (2 quarts).
Rear axle Hypoid LSD oil API GL-5 (2 1/4 pints).

DO NOT USE GL-4 in GL-5 and visa-versa where recommended as this will damage these units :!:
I found the front axle, gearbox and transfer box oils in good condition after 70K miles but the rear LSD oil was VERY black and burnt. This LSD oil should be changed every 36K miles BTW :shock: Also do not use any of these so called 'oil modifiers' to change gear oils into LSD oil as they're a load of shite IMO, get the right oil for the job :thumbright:

Could one of the mods put the list woz made above and put it as a sticky in the D22 tech library bit? so we can use it for quick reference.

From your description GL1-5, this sounds like it is fully synthetic?
If so this will be OK, a bit overkill in a transfer box though, but perfect for a gearbox, the changes will be nice and light even on the coldest mornings.
