    You can look on your Purchase Window sticker. It should say. If you don't have limited slip the additive wont hurt it. If you do have limited slip and you don't add it, we'll it could burn up the clutches inside the diff.

    Found the window sticket and I have the Dana 44 rear limited slip. So the front is also? Which synthetic oil do you recommend?

    Only the rear has a limited slip. Really any synthetic oil is fine.

    Yes. All Royal Purple products are.

    First Time Differential Fluid Change

    I am going to change my fluid for the first time this coming weekend. i will be removing my stock covers and replacing with Solid Diff Covers on my front (30) and rear (44). I will be adding Lube Lockers as well. I have a couple questions. I don't run off road a lot, maybe 4 or 5 times a year because this is my commuter and daily driver. Is changing the diff fluid out every 30,000 miles okay? I have a 2.5" lift with 33's, nothing too fancy. Also, o you have a recommendation on a brand to use (Royal Purple (pictred in your write up), Mobil 1, Valvoline, etc.)?

    Thanks a lot guys for your help!!

    Yup, 30,000 miles is fine and really any gear oil will get the job done fine. If you have a limited slip, I would recommend a synthetic lube - brand makes no difference.

    Quick question...I unscrewed the filler plug on my 2012 jk rubicon and fluid came gushing out ? I'm guessing .25 quarts on the ground. How the heck would they get fluid that far over the filler plug and now do I need to drain and refill to make sure the correct amount is in there? Also the 2012 manual says 80w 90 oil, is 75w 90 alright to use. Thanks
