looking at doing a service....

I will be getting my truck back from having warranty work done and I am going to be doing a full service and I was wondering what fluids you guys recommend for the Transmission and both Differential's?

On my D80 it was 8oz of Limited Slip Friction Modifier. I added 4oz (one bottle) first, just to see and it helped a lot. But now I've noticed it's needing more, so I'll probably put the other 4oz bottle in.

Thanks for the info... I got a Service Manual and I was looking up capacities and it says that the Rear Diff takes 75w-140( with Modifier ) and 75w-90 for the front.
