Up until a few months ago, I had never realized that the GL4 is actually more appropriate for the Toyota transmission than the GL5. I read it on yotatec forum, before I knew that this forum existed. Since I've had the truck since new, I've always used the GL5 from amsoil, and I actually changed it several times over the last 15 years.... still having a tight shift stiff shift issue. I've already changed the shifter seats (bushings), and although it made it shift much nicer, it's still a little tough in cold weather.
Last week, I ordered the GL4 from Amsoil, and have since put it into the trans and transfer case (tonight, actually). I'm looking forward to seeing if or what difference it makes in the way the truck shifts, when I drive the truck tomorrow.
Since I have about 168,000 miles on the truck, I don't know if it will do any good, at this point, but I figured I'd give it a try.
