All you need are some ramps or jack stands, 2 quarts of 80W-90 gear oil, drain pan, ½ inch drive ratchet with a 14MM hex socket, a old clean ½ or one gallon jug, and a hand pump. I made step by step pics so the next time someone comes along(like me) and needs some good directions they will have some. Let me know what you think about it.

All the needed tools and products:

Once full snug down the fill plug and enjoy:
