    I'm thinking I should change my diff fluids to royal purple, I heard it was good stuff, what are your guys opinions? Also is there an additive I need to drop in when I get around to it?

    personally..... royal purple aint no betta then any of the rest, im sure some will argue that with me, but any full synthetic oil is the way to go

    I agree. Based off of my research Royal Purple is not any better than any other premium full synthetic. I personally use nothing but full synthetic in everything, and usually I get either RP or Mobil 1

    its just sponsorship politics, if you like someone, support their product, if you dont like a driver, dont buy it, if they were sponsoring anyone else id probably buy one

    I can't find amsoil here unless I'm not looking in the right place, royal purple is just something I know is readily available

    I use Mobil 1 in my 94, I like it, truck uses almost no oil, and if me, my brother and my dad are all using the oil well just split the cost

    see my 1997 has a very small oil leak so its not worth putting expensive oil in that, but my 2000 doesnt leak or burn a drop
