Default Changed the rear diff oil and new diff cover

I have been buying things little by little to keep up with the maintenance of the truck. Today was the rear diff drain, fill and new cover with some fresh paint! I went with the full synthetic oil with the must have limited slip additive.

Looks good, but normally I'd go with a little heavier weight oil with the friction additive since it's thin. 80W or 85W is usually what I use..

Diff cover looks good dude, even though it looks orange in the pic

does the limited slip additive really do anything, if you have a open rear?

Limited slip gives extra traction...Say if one wheel cant get traction, it will just sit there and not spin, giving more power to the wheel actually gettiing the traction
