I'd go with about every 60K miles or so. All diffs should use gear oil, I think it's the 85w90 stuff - but check. If you have a Dana 300, it also uses the same.

I change mine once a year. I try to stay out of the water but it is soooooo hard. If it is an manual like mine it will have drain plugs under the skid plates. The fill plugs are on the sides of the cases. You will fill them untill the oil starts running out the holes. Their full. Go buy a chiltons. they really come in handy.
