I might be the Guinea pig here, I have been running 75w90 synthetic Amsoil in the front diff and okay so far...I hope. I just figured since I put it in the first time I would keep on going. Will let you if I blow it up, 60 hours so far.

The front diff does call for engine oil......the issue with EP gearlube is that if the diff has any yellow metals in it (ie...brass,copper etc) the EP additives found in any gearlube are corrosive to yellow metals above about 225 degrees (F).

The front diff does'nt usually work that hard on a Teryx and might not see that kind of temp anyway but..........

I have replaced the diff oils in the front and in the rear of my teryx with royal purple gear oil that is safe for wet clutches and have 2300 miles total and 1600 miles with the royal purple gear oil and no problems. Front diff locking clutches and rear brakes are all original and working fine.
