Hmmmm... now you have me worried !!!! It was a long time ago, nearly 10 ears !! If I recall correctly I did gearbox and diff (front and back) oils change. I cannot recall what I put in as it was just after I got the the Patrol. Everything still works well, gearbox is as smooth as a .... well very smooth :biggrin: . Its probably time to do a full oil change on everything again.
