I'm going to. The front I'm gonna run 75-90 synthetic. The rear probably 75-140 synthetic Royal purple. Shop also recommended a bigger diff cover to hold more fluid to help keep heat down. Thinking ruff stuff?

Got the broken seat bolt out today. Going to re install carpet, its to damn hot without it. Also going to use some insulation under the carpet around trans tunnel in an effort to help reduce heat and noise. Once I get the rad and fan replaced im probably going to fix the AC. there is no other way around it. no AC ****ING sucks!

Idk. Im assuming its the evaporator, which is what usually goes on XJ's. I take it to work and charge it and see if i can find a leak elsewhere, which would be awesome haha

I have Redline synthetic 75w90 in the front and 75w140 in the rear of mine. The Redline quieted down some rear end whine I had and my pinion seal stopped leaking completely, to the point of where its actually dry there. Not sure how that is even possible, but the fluid is still full so I'm going to keep using it.

I have been buying it from Amazon. It is cheaper per quart there than the Mobil 1 fluid is at Autozone.

I might have to try that than. Thanks

I got the carpet back in today. Gotta say I did miss it. defiantly feels more homey haha and its not 10000 degrees in it!

Next up is to do the radiator, hoses, install trans cooler, change power steering pump, serp belt, and a few little loose ends. Than get a driveshaft, install my sliders finally and than wheel it
