I noticed lots of people using it, but I donít know how good it is compared to Toyotas original product.

been running redline MT-LV in the transfer case for 20k miles in my 2010 and no issues, no noises, no improvement, but nothing has exploded yet.

Also using redline 75w85 in the rear diff for about the same mileage. Havent gotten around to swapping front differentail.

I checked my rear differential fluid today and thatís what i see. Itís dark but at the same time it still clear. What do you think change it or give it another 5-7k more miles.

2010 at 100 thousand miles. I off-road all the time and go through a lot of water crossings. I just changed both diffs and transfer case. No sign of water. You'll notice a milky substance floating because water and oil don't mix if contaminated. My gear oil was fairly clear and smelt like good oil. It shouldn't have a burnt smell. Also check your magnets. This will tell you how well the conditions are within your gears. Mine had no chunks or shavings. Which is very good. A baby powder like consistency of metal dust is fine.

You just changed it for the first time at 100k and 11 years? Gear oil starts off with an unpleasant smell and only gets worse with time.

HD trucks normally run 250k mile diff changes.

My F250 manual says never change the diff oil.

Toyota says you don't need to change unless you're a severe duty driver.

I've changed my differentials multiple times, so they've had fresh oil regularly. Lol.

The only 5th gen I know with 300K plus on the odo had diff oils changed every 100k, never changed trans fluid (still works well and shifts normally).

I did mine at 40k and the rear was milky and dirty the transfer case and front looked new. So unless major off-roading probably dont have to do the front.

I convinced myself to go with Toyota’s original $35 per can x 5 not too bad. Next replacement will be in a few years if nothing happens
