Between both youll need about 4 Quarts i think, the front uses a little less than 2 quarts. I usually just fill up till you the oil is about a half inch or so below the fill plug. tjkj2002 knows the amount.

i see, well i hope he replies soon, this mobil 1 oil is rather expensive, not sure why corporate went with it, i liek the one dana uses much more we put it in the rubi all the time. and i find it weird that the manual does not state the amount of oil required...

Between the 2 axles you will only need 4qts and should have a 1/4qt left over.

Synthetic gear oil needs to be changed every 12k-15k,dino gear oil can go longer(I still recommend 12k-15k drains still anyways).

I can only run dino gear oil(85w-140) in my diff,more so for the rear to keep the warranty as synthetic gear oil will kill my rear axle fast.

Diffs are the only item in your vehicle where synthetic oil is not best.
