That true trac might have you run non- synthetic. No friction mod in either axle. Front is open. 80w90

Must be GL-5 gear oil. SYN is optional. 75-90 or 80-90 is good. 90-140 if pulling trailers or heavy load all the time.

Since he is running a brand new locker, it might say he can't run sythetic.

Alot of lockers recommend no synthetic for the first 3,000 Miles (or something like) . I'm guessing it's a break in thing, just like a engine.
