    It doesn't matter, whatever's on sale. I usually find valvoline on sale at walmart.

    All big name brands have come along way so probably can't go wrong with either. I usually go with OE or Mobil1 for cars and motorcycles.

    I've tried Royal Purple and Redline. Can't see any difference in performance.

    I use Mobil 1 synthetic for the motor, royal purple for the diffs, and amsoil for the tranny. It would probably run the same with whatever you can find but itís one less thing to worry about having quality fluids in it. Just my .02

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
