Also the 2012 manual says 80w 90 oil, is 75w 90 alright to use. Thanks
    It can get overfilled by adding oil with the Jeep on a slant, worst case is that some water got in and raised the level.

    Regarding the 75w, the number before the w is the "winter", or cold viscosity. I can't remember the details, but it means the oil actually has the viscosity of a traditional 75 grade gear oil at some specified cold temperature in a standard test. The 90 number represents the viscosity at some standard normal operating temp. Bottom line is that 90 is the most important number, and 75w means it isn't as thick as an 80w in the cold. A number higher than 80w would be undesirable, but lower is better as long as other oil qualities aren't compromised in the process. I use a 75w/90 synthetic in everything that calls for 80w/90.

    Goals are meant to be obtained eventually, not just put on a shelf and looked at and pondered upon from time to time.

    Hey Eddie, can you use synthetic in a non limited slip? I was thiniking about just going all synthetic if my Jeep can use it.

    After the 1500 mile break in period (sometime in the next 2-3 weeks, already at 600 after a week) I'm changing every fluid to RP synthetic. Researching all the fluid types/amounts for the change, along with the best filters. the hardest part will be the auto trans . I'm debating pulling the pan to replace out the filter as well. It shouldn't of course need it, but I'm thinking about it..

    Ok I was just curious because the stickers on my axles are unreadable now so without calling Chrysler (i really hate dealing with them) I don't know for sure what kind of differential I have. So if I can use synthetic on it anyways just to be safe thats great.

    I seriously doubt that you have limited slip but, if you do, synth gear oil will have you covered. If not, no big deal. You'll be just fine.
