    My 2001 Ram 2500 has a Dana 60 rear end that calls for sae 90 gear oil. Problem is i cant seem to find that in local auto parts stores. Does anyone have other recommendation as far as other fluid choices for this rear diff?

    Just get some 80/90 or 75/140 or whatever gear oil is available. This is not rocket science. If you have a L/S be sure to get with additive or grab a bottle to add.

    If you don't want to get it off of Amazon, all Tractor Supply stores carry it. It is a common gear oil used in tractors.
