Changing my differentials oil

Hi there, I'm about to do my differentials, wondering if I could use the 75w-140 synthetic gear lubricant on the front and back? Will I void my warrenty and will it do any harm? Also, I can't find how many litres I need....would appreciate any help.

Thanks, Enrico.

Enrico, pour the bottle in through the filler hole, When the fluid drips out of the filler hole, it is filled. Replace the filler cover (rubber Grommet) with a new cover ( $2 at the dealer)

I personally wouldn't put Synthetic in my D35 just because I hate it. One of these days, that D35 is going to get angry at me and snap. If you do frequent water crossings, I also wouldn't put expensive gear oil in it.

I am not a fan of synthetic too, but that seems to be what most car manufacturers are calling for. I will be servicing the transmission and diff soon I put back in the mopar factory lubricants.
