Transfer Case & Differential Fluid Capacities

For the DIY guys here are fluid capacitys broken down for you guys.

The transfer case takes 3.8 pints which is 60.8 ounces which comes out to 1.9 quarts.

And just for the record 2 quarts of NV146 cost me $68.25 from a dealer. Yes thats not a typo 2 quarts for almost 70 bucks!!!!

The differential front case takes 57.5 ounces which breaks down to 1.79 quarts.

The differential rear case takes 76.0 ounces which breaks down to 2.35 quarts.

So you need 133.5 ounces total which comes out to 4.17 quarts of 75w140 synthetic gear oil for the front and rear differential cases.

I found a good siphon at pep boys that should make the differential cases a tad easier to change.

Enjoy.

Could this be right?

My dealer just gave me a quote of approximately $289 plus tax to service both differentials. If that price is correct and the cost of the lube is $70 a quart..... man, I think that will be a dealer job for sure..... unless lube is a lot cheaper elsewhere.
