Major fluid change

I am going to have all the drive fluids replaced this saturday which is the engine, tranny, transfer case, front and rear diffs. I was going to use all original Ford fluids right from the dealer but want to know what you have for sugestions as far as aftermarket goes. (everything except engine oil)

Do you have any experience with Amsoil? I know that it's very pricy

honestly Cam...only used it in the engine. years ago...i just throw in whatever is out at camp here....same weight of oil but not synthetic. haven't done a oil change other than the engine in awhile. 75-140 in the diffs i run and whatever they call for in the tranny/transfer case...atf i think. mercon 5 or something like that...not sure if you'de see a gain by using synthetic atf.

just had mine done on the explorer on friday, diff's (front/rear),tranny,transfercase,fuel filter,spark plugs and power steering flush.... found i had a bad rear axle seal so had it replaced just used regular oils for the changes....

both diffs were dirty, tranny and transfer case were clean looking and smelled fine,power steering.... well it was the most rank smelling stuff ive ever smelt from a vehical ad i thought 90weight oil stunk this stuff was rotton it was very dirty almost black it was way overdue for a change

just under 200k so figured id pamper the truck get all the fluids done at once



and a bit of a rant... FORD NEEDS TO PUT DIPSTICKS IN THERE EXPLORERS pumping in fluid is just a PITA !!
