    A wise choice, Amsoil is good stuff. :nod:

    The stock fluid spec is 75W-90 synthetic (front and rear) for your truck. And thats what you want to stay with. Thicker isn't necessarily better...especially when your talking modern hi performance synthetic lubricants.

    Don't forget to add friction modifier if your trucks equipped with the Trac-LoK limited slip diff.

    Approx 2.5 qt for the front and 4qt for the back.

    You wont get 4 full qts in the back along with the additive, but you'll need more than 3 to get it full.
