Do water crosssings include launching a boat? I have been in some deep launches where my rear axle has been under water. Just curious.

Thanks.

Yes. If you submerge the axle then the fluid should be changed shortly thereafter, such as at the end of boating season at the longest.

Again, I'm going to bump a thread that's a few years old...

I want to change the diff fluids. My jeep xj has the class III hitch on it. NoW it says that if it comes with the hitch to use 75w140 inthe rear...But in the rear only? Am I okay to put 75w140 in both front and rear diffs, or should I run 75w140 in just the rear and 75w90 in the front?

I appologize for my new guy questions, I searched and found this thread.

Thanks in advance.

It has nothing to do with the hitch and it may have been added by a PO.. You can check your build sheet.
You should use 75w140 if you're towing.
It can't hurt to use it in both and I would use Mobil1.

Could someone post how much fluid is needed for the diff drain and fill? Same for front and rear?
Thanks.

I've read it takes 2.5 PTs in the d30 and 3.5 PTs in the d35....so just over 1100 mls in the d30... Correct me if I'm wrong.

Much thanks for the info. I had a friend try to tell me that each diff will take at least 4 quarts of fluid....or approximately 6.6pints. I just shook my head in disbelief.

In the d30 and d35 do you have to put in any additives like they Reccomend you do with the d60?

You want to replace the fluid about once a year, but check to see you don't have to replace the differentials, but Eaton is a great brand if you do. http://www.99truckparts.com
