    Depends on what gears you run. If you have stock then yes run that. If you run a higher ratio like a 4.88 or a 5.13 then do a 75w-140 due to the extra heat created

    In my JK I ran Lucas Oil then Mobil 1 in the same weight. She felt heavier with the Lucas oil for some reason, like it had to work harder. I don’t know, I had a transmission issues too, but I switched to Mobil 1 (buy 1 get 1 sale) & that feeling seemed to go away.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve 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.
