Default Should I lube the differential?

I've been reading somewhere that I should do this with my Caldera 10E. Should I? What do I use and how do I do that?

maybe describe your lube......
if it's not a sealed diff than i wouldn't use the actual diff oil, as it will just leak out when hot and make a mess.  But as for the redcats i'm sure if they are sealed or at least the caldera.
I use good high temp white lithium grease in my diffs, don't need to be swimming in it but enough to keep things covered..

Thanks for the response. How would I go about doing this? Do I need to take it all apart or is there some way I can inject it in there?

you would have to take the diffs out of the truck in order to lube/fill the diffs.

Use this stuff on your differentials, you can get it at any NAPAstore.
