I haven't read the manual on what they recommend but it's probably 75W-90, but don't quote me on that. A Detroit Locker will run you about $700-800. Out of curiosity, why are you changing your differential fluids. I don't think you need to for about 100,000 miles. I may be wrong.

Here's the page from the owners manual.

I have a MagHytec cover holding almost 6 qt. of Redline 75w140 plus 2oz of their friction modifier in my rear end. Works great, I changed it with less than 50k and gained about 1 mpg. The stuff that came out was surprisingly dirty.

In the front I have Mobil 1 75W90. I wanted to use Redline again but wasn't able to get it at the time. I don't recomend the MagHytec cover on the front of a stock height truck, you'll have interference problems.
