    Shockproof Gear Oils: Recommended for heavily-loaded racing differentials and transmissions which see shockloading. Shock Proof contains a unique solid dispersion which cushions gear teeth to help prevent tooth breakage and allows the use of lower viscosities. Available as Super Light, Lightweight, and Heavy grades.

    I use it too. It is awesome stuff. I run it in both my welded 14bff and also my locked 10 bolt front. It is great stuff and I recommend it highly.

    How well does this stuff work in winter?!

    I mean, the 75 should mean it flows just as good as any other gear oil- but the 250- wow. Might be worth it for a tow rig.

    It did fine for me when I spent the winter in Colorado a few years back. The great stuff about that gear oil is once it coats the metal surface there is ALWAYS a film of gear oil on the metal.

    If you park you rig for a few days there will still be a gear oil film on the top of the gears that is above the fluid level.

    The funnel I use to fill my diffs with that stuff keeps a film of oil on it for months. It doesn't completely go away. Metal to metal contact is basically a thing of the past with that oil.

    It is definitly a thick gear oil but it flows fine once it warms up a little. Shouldn't be a problem with winter driving. The inside of the diff will still get warm enough to heat the oil up to a good flow thickness.
