Anyone from North TX running synthetic gear oil? if so what's holding up the best?
When I was living up in Sherman, TX. I ran some roale purple in the rear
diff. went up to Clayton OK. and got some water in, returned to TX. went
wheeling in the red river/Lake texoma area, and got some more water in there
parked it for a few weeks, tried to get the rear nice and hot to evaporate
the water, and the synthetic, just would not get hot.
Opened up for an inspection(drain refill) sure enought, milkshake !
So for wheeling not worth it, for 99.9% street use go for it.
Water will never evaporate out of oil. Especial when it gets all mixed in. Synthetic doesn't turn to sludge a easy. But if you want sludge in you diff. Go for it.
