That's exactly what I'm using based on your advice a few months ago. Finally getting around to doing it.


Good deal! It really is a great product.

For what it is worth, in our 2003 dually I use Mobile 1 75-140. Changed it for warranty purposes at their intervals. 60,000 miles was the last until 201,000 when the gasket started to seep. Put new in then, now the clock shows 256,000. I filled it to the hole that the fill plug screws in.

Amsoils is a complete waste of $$. ANY gear oil that meets the specs for GL5 gear oil will do just fine.
Why overpay $18 for amsoil when you can just use $6 or $7 dollar gear lube of any kind?

Mopar's junk meets that spec! So no they are not all equal!

YEP, it's Junk! So don't buy it. Probably the highest rated GL you can buy.

As mentioned Mopar fill is JUNK!!!
