I cannot say much about replacing the diff., as I have not damaged mine, yet. However, I can say that if you cannot afford the visco differential and want to replace yours with stock (for the sake of money), this stuff is great! It is SUPER thick and sticky, and it really coats the gears, giving you a better locking feeling when you drive. It is WAY better than the diff. comes stock...and it is reasonably cheap.

If you decide to use it, order two containers (they are much smaller than they look in the picture ) and really pack the stuff in there between the gears with the provided applicator. DON'T GET ANY ON YOUR HANDS!!!

Good Luck!

...well, all I have ever had was the stock differential, but with this grease I notice a marked increase in the hook-up of the rear tires. [8D] The stuff is thicker than toothpaste and as sticky as half-cured epoxy.

Imagine this:

a completely open diff. at one end of the spectrum, and a completely locked diff. at the other end of the spectrum. A stock FG differential with two or even three containers of the Bad Horsie diff. grease will seem like it is about 75% locked...but I'm no expert on differentials.

Well i ve blown plenty of diffs before i started using diff lock.Even before i installed #8484 i took te stock diff filled it with grease and then sealed it with red gasket maker,take one of the driving axles out and fill her up with 120,000 diff lock oil,slows the diff action down less wear and better traction.


Haven t blow one since.

DesertEagle, welcome to the MT blown diff club!.....the standard FG diff is a pile of crap.
Do yourself a favour, buy the FG Double self locking diff 8500/5.
My MT has one and with about 30 tanks through its as good as new.
