changing all oils. what are you using?

Im getting ready to change all the oils and fluids in the truck. Transfer case, front and rear-end, engine oil, steering pump fluid, flushing out the radiator, brake fluid, and possibly tranny (i was told it was already done). What do you all use in yours?? Im using Rotella in my engine.


thanks

The diffs in mine get Amsoil.
Tranny and Xfer case get Mobil 1 synth
Brake system gets Valvoline synth brake fluid
Radiator...green stuff.
engine oil...Rotella(15w-40 summer, 10w-30 winter)

Look in our tech section...there is a writeup on flushing your brake system.
