Check any of the automotive stores in your area.. I would suggest checking a few for price comparison as this is not a cheap fluid.

cheers

Yeah like I posted over on Jeep Forum I can't find it at my local Autozone, Napa nor OReilly's. :mad: The only one that could even order it was OReilly's and it was a brand I have never heard of. The dealership (I heard) wants over $20 per liter and I need four of them, 20x4=$80 hell no! Anyway I may order it from OReilly's but I will do my homework on the brand first.

I don't think Valvoline makes it in that weight either. So what about some 85w 140 any differences, and can I use it in my rubicon. I think valvoline makes this weight. I will go down to OReilly's right now and find out the brand they carry in that weight and let yall know. Later for now!

I don't know if that is a good idea. With the LSD you may not want to change it to much. This is my first LSD so I hope there is someone out there that has this answer...

I might have to get into the export business for gear oil. 75W is avaliable up here. :p 8)

Stay Lube?

Well I went down to O'Reilly's and they can order some 75w-140 synthetic STAY LUBE. Anyone ever heard of this brand? The part number is 2496. I might use it but am going to keep looking for now. I really want to change my gear oil THIS WEEK because I already have 8400 miles and all that fresh metal is still in the diff. If anyone can get me oil from a brand I have heard of let me know, Thanks.

You may want to try AMSOIL. I believe they have a pretty good reputation if I recall correctly. I just checked their website and they carry 75W-140 and its only about $12/Quart, which is a lot better than Mopar's $20+/Quart, especially if you plan on changing it regularly. AMSOIL calls it Series 2000 SAE 75W-140 Synthetic Gear Lube. You can order it online from their website also.

Hope that helps :D

I just bought some redline 80w140 synthetic from my local dealer.
I think it was 7.95 per quart.

Should work just fine.

I also bought some redline ATF C+ for the transfer case while I was there.

I run penzoil synchromesh in the tranny and mobil 1 in the engine.

If you go to redlineoil.com you can call them up and they will tell you the locations for your local dealers or you can mail order from them.

I joined AMSOIL's preferred customer program ($10 for 6 months) and bought the 75W-140 synthetics for $9.35 a quart.

This is much better than paying $25 per quart for the Mopar stuff.

personally i stuck to what the tag on the diffs say and how it came from the factory...75w140 synthetic...most have the LSD additive already in it (just check the label to make sure) only kind i could find locally was Pennzoil 75w140 synthetic with LSD added already at Napa ($19.95CAN per 946ml bottle X 4 = not cheap!!!) went this route because if a problem arises with my axles, i can prove i went with same fluid that DC uses...

FM is 6.50/4oz bottle.
Mopar 75/140 they list 19.20 / qt ... buying 4 disc was 17.28 /qt
2 tubes of RT Sealer (not cheap)
total bill was 95.55 for doing both diff`s.

I just ended up going to Jeep and buying their stuff. No extras, just pumped the stuff right in.

It was concerning to see all the *crap* on the magnetic plugs. It is nice knowing the little magnet are there though! :D
