Any Dexron III Mercon, or Amsoil rated for that and i think it will take 18 quarts to do it

Most likely, you'll have to find a dealer or an independent owned store that sells it.

You can get Royal Purple at PepBoys. If it were engine oil we were talking about I'd say no doubt if you can afford it go with Amsoil, but with gear oil its different. Royal purple has got some kind of moly additive that is great for cogs. I forget exactly what is called.
