Changing fluids in new(to me) F-350?

Just purchased a 2002 F-350 4x4, automatic, dually with 206,000 miles. Rain tonight may let me do some service work on truck tomorrow. I would like to change the fluid in the rear end, possibly transmission, transfer case etc. Would you guys go with synthetic oils in these, and if so, any particular brand? do you know the capacities?
thanks,
Jim

Congrats on the new truck!

I haven't done my tranny and transfercase yet, but I have done my rearend. It takes 4 bottles of synthetic diff fluid. I use 75w-140 in it and it works fine. Make sure it is for limited slip as well. I would get a bottle of friction modifier to have on hand IF you need it.

yeah if it hasnt been changed before, its probably a liquid gasket, make sure you got a good scraping tool to get it all removed, and maybe a bottle of brake cleaner to clean the cover while its off. I used a plactic bag pushed inside and around the rearend so while cleaning it nothing could fall in there. Common sense stuff you probably already knew but...

If you get royal purple and Im sure other brands but it already has the friction modifier in it. I just did my rear end and it cost me almost a $100 for the fluid and some rtv
