    I use Royal Purple 75w140 in conjunction with the Mopar LS additive from the dealership.

    You don't need the limited slip additive. Rubi limited slip is helical gear and not clutch limited slip.

    If you got the solids, I'm not sure what they say to torque the bolts too, but if it's over 30 ft lbs, it's to much. Be careful or you'll break the bolts. I wanna say the instructions use to say around 45 ft lbs or so. I usually just use a 1/4" socket and make 1 round around the cover till it's semi tight, then go back 1 more time for an extra twist.

    Also with Solid covers be sure you put what the diff calls for from the factory (I think 1.75 qt's? so up to 2 won't be an issue) just do not do the old fill it till you fell it with your fnger because the solid covers fill hole is higher and will allow you to over fill the diffs, and will in turn do one of two things. It will either just leak out or it will blow out the axle seals.

    actually on a lifted rig, if the pinion is pointed higher than from the factory you want to put in a bit more diff fluid so it gets to the pinion bearings.

    had a friend that learned that the hard way and burned out the pinion bearing in 200 miles.
