Default Front & rear axle/transfer case fluid change recommendations

Hello all,

I just bought a 1 owner 2000 Ram 1500 4x4, it seems it was well loved and taken care of.

I want to change the fluid in both axles and transfer case, what type/weight, additives are required? How much of each?

Thanks, Todd.

It's time to get a haynes manual. Has all the info you'll need and more. For what it's worth, i went synthetic in both diffs (use additive for limited slip diff), nice clean atf in the transfer case. While your at it give the chassis a good lubing.
