I want to change my transmission and transfer case oil in my Toyota(3RZ-FE) 4x4 pickup with synthetic oil this oil seems the most popular here in South Africa.(I am not sure if you get it in the US?)
I want a smoother shift as the shift with mineral oil isnt that great.
I have heard that 4x4's do have more back lash when shifting because of the tranfer case?

Here is the TDS for Castrol BOT 130M:

For the manual transmission and transfer case I think this would be an excellent product for your area.

Does your Toyota recommend gear oil in the transfer case?

Then yes, I would use this Castrol product in your Toyota.
