    Its deff a good idea especly if they dont have detailed maintance records.I use Mobil 1 full senthetic 75w90 for the rear diff. The tranny and front diff share the same fluid its also 75w90,i use royal purple and valvoline mix. But we all have different opinions on what fluids to use its just what ever works best for you I would also change the motor oil for a piece of mind i use 5w30 mobil 1 its GL-4 certified
