Quick question the hydraulic fluid isn't really all that thick why would it matter if its a tiny bit thicker that 10w40 ? It's not like it has an oil pump that it has to cycle through. Do you really think its gonna hurt to run hydraulic fluid in the from diff? What's the outcome if u do?

Well come to think of it. It may be the close to the correct weight, but I am pretty sure it includes friction modifiers that would be a no no for the clutch's in the diff.

Also its more expensive than motor oil so why waste it on the front diff when you can buy a gallon of rotella T that will take care of the oil and diff change in one go?

U can get 2 gallons of it for 18 bucks that's cheaper than rotella I'm just curious cause I was gonna use what I used in the rear diff for the front. Also the rear break is just like a clutch so if u can use hydraulic fluid in the rear wouldn't u think the diff lock clutches would be made of the same material? I'm just wondering cause none of this makes sense lol. Something u can use in the rear u can't use in the front but they both have the same parts in them they just do different things

Think about how the front diff lock works(under power)and how the rear brake works(not under power)even though they both have similar components ie clutch packs their operation is the complete opposite.Use what is recommended, there is a reason for it. Motor oil in the front and hyd wet brake fluid in the rear.

Its not cheaper when you also have to buy the oil to do the oil change...

Buy 1 gallon, two quarts in the motor, a bit of the leftover in the front diff and you are done.

Also what wet brake fluid are you getting for 9 bucks a gallon?

I don't know what its called I'm not around it right now but I got it at rural king its just tractor hydraulic wet brake Fluid. I just think that if its ok for a wet brake it would be ok for a wet clutch. If ur brakes haven't give out squeezing the shit out of them and they still stop good then I wouldnt see why apply pressure and putting torque on the diff clutches would really be that much different. I understand the difference that they do. One has to completely lock up and not slip and the other does slip. Just font see it affecting it until someone can give proof or show proof that it won't work

Shell Rotella T 15W-40 conventional oil now lists on its packaging JASO MA as one of the specifications it meets, as does the Rotella website product page:
Note that the 10W-30 conventional oil does not list JASO-MA.
The newer fully synthetic T6 5W-40 oil also lists JASO-MA compliance on its packaging and on the Rotella website.

This is what I run:
