    Hey just a quick question. After I change the fluid in the axles, transmision, and transfercase, can I just take the fluid to autozone or something? I know they take oil but how bout this stuff? Will they take it if I mix the fluids together?

    Well the way it works around here is you can take upto 5gal of used 'oil' at a time to the local Krapen Auto Parts store.
    I highly doubt that the teenagers behind the counter that are dumping the 'oil' into thier drums would beable to tell if gearoil was mixed with motor oil. So I say mix away no one will ask or question you as long as you don't put water or atifrez in it your good to go!!
    Used oil is an ugly color anyway no ones can tell if you have gear oil in there. Tranyfluid??? I don't no I have a manual that take 90W so never delt with a slushy berfore......
