Whoa!!! Time to change those oils quick!!! If the oil is milky white, then you got water in there and thats not good.

The manual recommends 75W-90, but its easier for me to find 80W-90 here in sunny So-Cal. If you can find 75W-90 up there, that should be better for the colder weather otherwise 80W-90 will work also.

You should consider changing the tranny and transfer fluids at the same time, as well as the rear and front diffs (if you are 4x4). You never know what all got water into it.

After you change the oil, run it for about 100km and see if the oil still shows signs of water (milky). If so, flush the fluids again. Then check again in another 100km and 750km after that.

About to do my first diff oil change. Just wondering if the drain and fill plugs had crush washers that have to be replaced? Thanks

They have crush washers, but I've never replaced mine. I think they are like $0.50 from the dealer each.
