yeah i run royal purple in my engine, tranny and transfercase as well as my axles on my 03 level 2 ranger. I noticed a drop of about 30 degrees in the trans temp. i do a lot of dune runnin with it so keeping it cool is important. the biggest difference it made was in the t-case, after 10k on regular atf the fluid would be all burnt from the extreme heat. i had royal in it for 30k and it still isnt burnt

I bought royal purple once in my old chevy gasser, decided the price wasn't worth paying if I just kept up with regular change intervals......on stuff like that though with longer intervals it might be worth it...
