Smile Going amsoil?

Hey everyone, I posted this on a few other forums as well, but I really want to get an idea of what to expect for amsoil.

I was just wondering how many of you had your trucks fluids all done in amsoil? I have been running it in the motor for the past year and am about to do my first oil change in the motor since then. I am also going to do both diffs, transfer case, transmission, and power steering. It seems as if everyone raves about it and likes it a lot. I just wanted to see how many of you used it in every aspect of your truck and how it worked. Give me the positives and the negatives. Even if you only run it in one part, let me know how you like it and what it did for you.

Here is what I am going with:

Motor:

SAE 15W-40 Heavy-Duty Diesel and Marine Motor Oil Product Code: AMEQT-EA

Filter:

AMSOIL Ea Oil Filters Product Code: EAO80-EA

Front and Rear diffs:

Severe Gear 75W-90 Product Code: SVGQT-EA

Slip lock for the rear diff:

Slip Lock Differential Additive Product Code: ADABA-EA

Transmission/Transfer Case/Power Steering:

Synthetic Universal Transmission Fluid Product Code: ATFQT-EA

A case of the diesel fuel additive:

Diesel Fuel Additive Concentrate Product Code: ADFCN-EA

oh yeah, and of course a claybar detailing kit (first time):

California GoldŽ Clay Bar System Product Code: 07240SN-EA



Any help is great. Just want to hear what people think about the stuff and how it works for them!

I have my entire familys cars trucks you name it. I also like the 4 stroke air cooled eng. oil. Good stuff My daughters car picked up 2 mile to the gal. My little shop car was burning 1 qt. every 1500 mile and I am at 1200 and barely off full, really helped it out.

Great! I cannot wait to get the truck completely done. My mom runs it in her 06 jetta, my bro runs it in his 06 jeep, and i also run it in my 06 cbr600rr...it is awesome stuff!

+1 To Crows. Got my oil in last week, running the new 3000 series. Since I have noticed that the engine is a bit quieter and gas millage is a little better. Haven't gotten any numbers on the millage but I will be sure to post when I fill up next.

Good stuff all around, go for the 3000 series.
