Figure someone will say Royal Purple - I'll mention Amsoil Severe Gear 75W-90. Depending on what I have on the shelf at the time that I need it, I usually use Lucas, Amsoil or Royal Purple.

I use the Valvoline Syn blend

OEM spec is 80W90.

I run 75W90 Royal purple(RP is full syn) in both axles, with friction modifier in my rear axle to make it super slippery in the rear with my locker.

I wouldn't run anything 140 on anything on the truck.....that's superthick crap and in a colder environment, it'll goo up.
