what weight oil is best for diffs & x-fer case?

I'll be replacing the gear lube in my differentials and trasfer case soon. I know there are different weights of oils that can be used. What are the best weights to use for each? (I live in California, so it doesn't get too cold.)

90 WT unless you use Mobile One then your only choice is 75 which is still good. I use regular dino oil in the diffs as I have too change it allot due to water and mud. But I put Mobile One in the T-case.
