6.0 Full Synthetic gear oil

Ok so I was looking online and found this new(ish) grease from amsoil Polymeric Off-Road EP Grease with 5% Moly, and I was wanting to use it to gease all the grease fittings on my truck soon. Then I was looking around their site and was looking through the GEAR OIL. My question(s) are this.

1: What do you guys think of Polymeric Off-Road EP Grease with 5% Moly?

a: Have you used it before and if so what are your overall impressions?

2: What is the proper weight for the gear oil in the front and rear diffs as well
as the transfer case?

a: What do you recommend for a full synthetic gear oil and additive for the
LSD in the rear? (I have noticed that my truck is a one wheel wonder )

3: I'm going to go with a full synthetic oil for the engine and was wondering
what you guys thought as far as brands go for full synthetic.

Thanks guys.

man you asked for a lot of info that is in your manual

i think 75-140 in the rear it has to be syn ,, look at your manual or the steel tag

the front is a different viscosity and non syn requirement but also on a tag/manual

but I like syn there as well but it's a different spec .

save the ls additive until you hear chatter ,,

I like syn oil like Rotella t6 5-40- year round ,,

I had my t case done at ford but IIRC it's LS-LV mercon

Manual for you

oh I use any quality grease in almost every application

I got tired of tracking 5 grease guns

I just avoid graphite additives as it is conductive and can mess with ABS sensors

this is lazy on my part ,, but with 4 PWC's a trailer for each a boat with about 5 grease points

and 4 vehicles ( not rich all POS rebuilds from DOA except for the 3 vehicles

I found a compromise .. and have had no issues ,, piece of wood ?
