I see this is now an older thread.... I’m getting ready to change the transfer case fluid in my 2016 Tundra....how has the Ravenol product performed? Any further updates?

The 2005 Sequoia service manual calls for 75W-90... That is what I will use next week. Original oil in my 2006 w/175K on the clock. I think that Tundras of the same vintage fall under the same category... worth investigating. Service Manual is on the 1st Gen Sequoia thread.

On my 2007 I have had stellar results with the Amsoil 75W90 gear lube in Front, Rear and TX case. I put it in at about 20K and now at 250K. I change it every 100K. On other trucks I have had issues where the oil I changed to just did not work right, and had to return to the OEM oil. Cam.

The old forum fluid debate... Tiresome.

Toyota fluids really aren't that much more expensive in my experience. I go to Mountain States Toyota here in Denver to buy fluids. My coolant was less expensive than the generic stuff at NAPA and you also don't have to deal with the knuckle-draggers at the big-box stores.

Toyota did it right the first time... just do it again the same way. You're talking a minimal amount of expense, all things considered. Just put the stuff in there that Toyota specs and be done. Time/money/energy are all the same thing, and replacing a transfer case because you put the wrong fluid in would be pretty f'n dumb.

Ford transfer cases are known to explode with the wrong fluid in them.... (ask me how I know).... I imagine Toyota's equipment is better than that but you ever know... this stuff isn't actually made by Toyota it's usually Borg Warner, ZF or someone else...
