What kind of differential oil to use

Hey,
Just finishing up installing a LSR MTS kit on my 700 and was wondering what the best oil to use to top back off the lost oil with? Or if I should change it to something completely different. Relatively new to this Rhino thing and don't know all the fluids it needs.

Thanks

Thumbs up Differential / Final gear oil

Same as a 700 you can use in your 450. I like the Royal Purple full synthetic max gear oil sae 75w-90. One quart will do both front and rear.The first time I used this I changed it out after first oil change. Then I only change differentials once year. If you ride in deep water, mud, ect. Change more often.A piece of clear hose works good for squeezing in holes in differentials also. Fill till you see fluid running out hole then put bolt on drive around then recheck to get air out ! Good luck....

Thanks. It has been an experience here lately with the Rhino. Replacing wheel bearings and trying to figure out a grinding noise when I put it in reverse. We are trying to get ready to go to Mud Nationals in Jacksonville, Texas.

Sounds fun, post some pic of Mud Nationals if you make it there, I'd like to see the "mud fly."
