PostSubject: TJ Diff Fluid Question   Tue 21 Dec 2010, 9:03 pm

MY Dad is going to change his diff fluid, anyone know what the preferred fluid and weight is? For the JK, I used Royal Purple 75W90. Also, anyone know how much to add? For the JK I used 3 quarts (2 in front, 1 in back I think). I thought I'd ask here before searching the web...

Thanks in advance,
Art

Royal purple will pretty much cover it unless you are worried about extended warranty then you have to go with a "factory" approved fluid upyours For The factory

75W-90 works, I use it.
Recommended by Jeep: 80W-90 all around or synthetic 75W-140 in the rear for trailer tow.

Dana 30
2.5 pints = 1.25 quarts

Dana 35
3.50 pints = 1.75 quarts
Trac-Lok differentials require 4 oz of friction modifier

Dana 44:
4.0 pints = 2 quarts
Trac-Lok differentials require 4 oz of friction modifier

Thanks for the info. He has a Rubi (Dana 44) but with aftermarket diff covers (don't remember what brand), so I guess the capacity could be off some. Also, I thought the Royal Purple synthetic includes the modifier needed??

Yes it does, that's why I said royal purple would cover it just fill it up until the drips from the fill hole. Then your good.
