I just bought a Ford 8.8 from a '97 Exploder that was set up for a TJ. Since I am pretty new to the mechanical aspect of vehicle maintanence, what gear oil would I use in it? It does have a limited slip. Thanks in advance!

You can run regular 90W (or 75W-90.... whatever) and I believe on the Ford, you have to put in the additive. I know I do on the wife's Superduty with LS. Some of the synthetics don't require the additive.

You would need the additive if you have the limited slip differential.
