need to change the gear lube in all of my drive train (trans,tcases,diffs,ect). For the tranny (my biggest concern) i want to run something good because its got a little wear on it. I would like to run syn but its just so expensive. I know Lucus makes good products, I've used the oil stabilizer lots of times. Any experiance with either? Likes/dislikes? I am looking at either Lucus, Royal Purple syn, or Valvoline syn

Redline in the tranny, amsoil in the rest of your junk (www.4x4Oil.com).

Redline (I believe MT90) made a HUGE difference in the way my tranny shifted, WELL WORTH IT.
x11ty billion... night and day difference.

Put synthetic in the tranny, Its worth the money and just dump whatever else into the t-case n diffs. Vavoline has a decent synthetic that I have had success with, I was able to get a 5 gallon of havoline for t-cases and diffs that I finally used up. It was about $50 IIRC

I run normal oil in the diffs... probably swap-out to some anti-shock synthetic when I change covers, I change it ~2x a year so I dunno if it's worth the tons of extra money in the diffs. Engine, Tranny, Transfer all synhetic.

I run straight lucas front and rear diffs, 80w90 cheap shit in the case, and getting ready to put the valvoline synthetic in the trannies, but the lucas in the diffs has smoothed out the lockers considerably

Lucas has synthetic. Not too bad on pricing depending on the dealer.

I run Lucas in my diffs with excellent results. I run John Deere Hy-Gard in my
automatic trans -transfer cases ( 203/205 ) and power steering the Hy-Gard only cost about 2.50$ per Qt. so far works awsome and very cost effective
Just my .02 cents

I'd run Amsoil LONG before I'd run Lucas in the diffs. That being said, I am also an Amsoil dealer, but obviously thats not as well known as CUE :D Either way, no matter who you choose to buy from, you can't go wrong with Amsoil.

Severe Gear from Amsoil in the diffs..HANDS DOWN the fawking stuff to have. Ask the CORR guys that were changing gears every race with traditional synthetics and gaer lube, that made the swap to severe gear 250 and now go a season. Next, if you have ARB's or detroits, they'll last longer with the shockloading protection of the new lube.

In the tranny, we just swapped to the Type F racing fluid in a dexron tranny based on another thread I saw and studied up on recently. I did the fluid change yesterday and the already like the shifts better...we'll see how it works over time but I'm looking forward to positive results with what I've seen already. The KOH TJ tranny always had a "sloppy" feel to it and I'm hoping it's a thing of the past.

Another vote for www.4x4oil.com for great service.

Thanks alot all for the kind words, I really do appreciate it (I guess I must be doing something right with all the positive responses).

That being said, I run Amsoil in my custom built trans and it shifts great, and lowere the overall fluid temps (which is always a great thing).

LEt me know what you need and I will get you some great pricing, I always take care of the PBB folks!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks again.

Another Amsoil plug. I am also a "dealer" but I don't sell to people. I am just a dealer so I can cheaper pricing on Amsoil for my personal use and a few close wheeling buddies that use it. I use it throughout my 98.5 Dodge CTD towrig and am switching my offroad truck over to it now that they have the 250W gear oil out. My offroad trucks motor was switched to Amsoil last year, and gearoil will be switched soon.

I have been running the Redline Shockproof 250w gear oil in my diffs for about 7 years now and love it as well. It makes a ton of difference on keeping my lockright quite, and I have had very minor gear related problems while running it in my diffs.
