Purchase 3 quarts and make sure you get the additive.

It will take 2 quarts + 1 pint + the additive.

I have an 04 R/C with 4:10's in it and the proper fluid for it is the 75-140. We went through this recently and according to Chrysler and the Shop Manuals (not owners manual) this is the correct recommended fluid. Also, it has been recommended to use two bottles of friction modifier ... ;)

The owners manual I believe, states 90 wt. It is not right:(

I am a post ho by nature, but at least for the 04 - the 75/140 and two bottles is the way to go... :cool:

Wifey :)

Thnks so much for the help. come to find out , the "06 axle was full of fluid allready.I just got home from swapping the "04 4:10 axle to an "06 4:56 that i got off of ebay.It was a perfect fit with the exception of the speed sensor on the axle housing.I had to use my "04 one since the "06 one didnt have the right plugin.I installed boomers shocks and blocks while I was at it.We will see tommorrow if the gear change makes a difference. :D

:eek: :eek: :eek: I just did the 90wt + 1 1/3 bottle limited slip accoding to the manual this last weekend. Where is the source/thread that says the owner's manual is wrong?

Between the 8.5 to 11 quart engine oil fiasco and this; meethinks that we need a sticky with confirmed and indisputable numbers on fluid viscosities, manufacturers, and volumes. It seems as though no two sources of this data ever match. :confused: Especially if both sources are Dodge! :mad:

This is from the 2004 Service Manual (not owners manual) Volume 1 of 2 DR Ram Truck 1500-2500-3500 which includes SRT-10s and Diesel... under lubrication and maintenance Section 0 -4.

However, it does not call out a 9 3/4 so to clarify the confusion we confirmed this with Chrysler and I called Moss Dodge in San Bernardino, CA and the service tech told me the rear differerntial in the 04 is a Dana M-60 and is measured as 248 mm (which tranlates to 9 3/4) - he said regardless of what ANY BOOK shows, if it is an SRT-10 stick with the 75/140 synthetic AN NO OTHER... and the 2 bottles of friction modifier and you can't go wrong. :)

:eek: Another attempt at a quality post :rolleyes:
