On my post #13 was from Mopar,WE are talking axle from Chrysler not Currie,Hi9,Eaton,and even Dana.I use to think like you,but got educated by watching,listening,and observe.i had to prove you were wrong,so I had to google and paste from the sites,Im sure you wouldnt take my word.I didnt have to call others,dont forget I was mechanic lot longer then you.

Wow !!! I didn't mean to set off a fire storm of Dino vs. Synthetic ! Anyway, after I change the diff fluid @ 18 K, when should I change it again, if I use dino oil vs. synthetic? Does it need to be at 36K or can it go to 50 K or longer?

Thanks

Id do it every 18k till you get to out of warranty. What do you plan to do with the jeep??? are you going to keep it for a long time or trade it in after a 100k or so?

If you plan to keep it till it dies, why not take care of it and do normal maintence.

If your going to run it to 100k and dump it, just do what you can do.

This argument is over, let's keep things on track or the thread gets closed. Everyone has the right to their opinion but let's do it in a civilized manner

I currently use Mobil 1 75W-140 front and rear. Good luck so far. We will see what happens. I plan on changing it about every 20K
