I have a truck with a manual gearbox that calls for ATF meeting Dexron II or a 75w80 GL-4 oil.

Had a look at Dexron II oils and they all seem to be around 7cst @ 100c mark.

I have a few litres of fully synthetic 75w GL-4 gearbox oil that I had for my old Ford Focus. Data sheet shows 75w oils to have a CST of around 7 at 100c like Dexron II oils.

Do you think this would be okay in my application?

Use without worry, it will be better than ATF.

The oil is Comma MVMTF Plus 75W. It meets Ford WSS-M2C200-D2 which requires the oil has PAO basestocks.

I'm unsure if you get Commma products in the US? They're quite highly regarded in the UK.

The requirements for the gearbox as per the manual is ATF Dexron IID however this was later superceded by Land Rover for MTF 94 which is a 75w80 GL-4 oil.

I replaced the FF gearbox oil in my 2014 Ford Focus with the Volvo fluid that MolaKule mentions which meets the Ford spec (WSSM2C200-D2) and it shifts terrific. I believe it's actually the exact same fluid as Ford's OE except cheaper to buy (It's also made in Germany). I would think it would be a big improvement over ATF.
