Just askin. I've been looking and most people seem to use 80-90 in the fronts and 75-140 with FM in the rears.

I have the same truck as you so Im going to be changing the diff fluid soon so I was just wondering. I guess 75-140 is recommended for the fronts with heavy duty or trailer towing.

Do you tow with your Jeep?

^^^yes i do tow a trailer in between nothing much, Max up to 2500kg,,,
And the bigger tires might add some ekstra strain on the diffs, so therefor, and its much easier to just have 1 fluid for both, also buying in bigger quantas you know

Tired of Valvoline and RP and other stuff which claim they have LSD Aditives added, but doesnt Work without proper Mopar FM, then trial and error to find correct amount FM.

This is the main reason i choose the more expensive Redline, only gear fluid That Work in our QD diffs straight from the bottle, got to love it.

Ok, ok. I just added some 32" Wrangler wheels/tires so 75-140 sounds like a winner for my front diff. Now to find the best $$ on the redline!!!

Ordered a new rear wiper arm from Advance Auto. The guy who had to push me up a snowy hill, due to my front drive shaft crapping out a couple weeks ago and open diffs (really embarrassing), leaned on it and snapped the support piece. Also started looking for some vari-lock axles and a front shaft with u-joints.

It translates pretty much to "Come and take it!" As in "you want my gun? Come and take it!"
