Default Rear end fluid

I have a 2008 FX4 off road with posi. I had the rear end fluid changed at a tranny place and they put in regular rear end fluid...I assume 80-90. Looking in my manual today I see they recommend 75-140 synthetic fluid for the fx4 only. Am I going to have a problem???????

Default Re: Rear end fluid

No, it should be fine, just make sure you put the additive in there for the limited slip or you'll burn it out. Fluid changes will also be more frequent. I believe the synthetic is considered a "life time of the vehicle" fluid where as regular gear oil is to be changed at something like 100,000 miles. People on here recommend every 50,000 miles I believe. The info you are looking for is also in the owner's manual.
