Front and rear differentials endure heavy loads when towing. This often renders conventional lubricants ineffective and contributes to fatigue failure in both gears and bearings. Royal Purple's Max-Gear synthetic severe-service oil is specifically formulated to handle the strain. Max-Gear provides maximum protection to heavily loaded gears while maximizing power output throughout the drive train. Its shock load protection reduces fatigue failure in gears and bearings. And, Max-Gear's low coefficient of friction saves energy, reduces temperatures and requires no OEM or aftermarket limited-slip additive.
