Dot 4 break fluid, I use the Lucas sttuff, it came recomended from Rovers North. For the diffs, swivels and T-case use 90 weight. I use Mobile 1 in the t-case and cheep stuff in the diffs and swivels because I change it allot. For the tranns use MTL I think, Redline makes good good MTL for the tranns.

Don't forget to Search first then ask questions later! The loose nut behind the wheel
