And for what its worth my dealer will not put 20w50 in. I asked, they said no. 10w40 only now. Put 10 different dealers in a room and youll get 20 different opinions. I tend to lean on the factory directions. I mean they built it.
That is good information on the gear oil. I paid $42 fricken dollars for mine at the dealer but justified it figuring at leat 3-4 changes. Going to run by a Land Rover dealer to verify. Heck, I might buy a case and resell for profit!
