Well I read the manual and it says I need to and lsd to the rear. If I just get 4qts of 85w-140 of royal purple or lucas would I bee good to put that in the front and rear even if the front doesnt need lsd which is already added in these synthetic oil??

You could use it in the front but it would be a total waste. The front just needs regular gear oil. I have 75-90 in the front and Royal Purple 75-140 in the rear. Save the expensive stuff for the rear.

If you have a LS in the rear you need friction modified fluid or the additive. As for the diff cover, I don't think it will be an issue unless you start trying to drive over large rocks.

the only 2 recommended for use in zjs is 80w-90 and 75w-140, the 75w-140 being used if you do a lot of towing. so if you dont do a lot of towing, the 80w-90 is best.

Can I possibly run 75w-140 just for the use of towing people if I have to but it barly sees dirt maybe once every 2 months or should I just stick with the 80w-90?

Towing means towing a trailer or some other large heavy object for lots of miles. Not pulling someone out of a hole.

pennzoil is a pretty trusted brand, idk if theyre the best, but its pennzoil. who hasnt heard of them? and its just gear oil. not engine oil. and plus, you cant beat the price
