The article addresses the issue with using GL5 in a synchronized gear box.

FYI On a GEN1 and GEN2 there are no synchronizers in the transfer case to have a wear problem with. There are bronze thrust washers. However, the loading and heat level are not sufficient to cause any problems. I have never had the transfer cases apart on the later models.

The transmission is a different story and GL5 can reduce synchro life.


Update... Until I can confirm I should have said no synchros in a GEN 1.
