2011 Armada Platinum Differential Oils

Trying to get a straight answer about front and rear differential oils for my 2011 Armada Platinum. Per the owners manual it says Hyponoid Super GL-5 80w90 and basically 75w90 for the rear. I have seen alot on here to use 75w140 for the rear if you tow which I do. Just wondering what is recommend for the front or both.

I tow a pretty heavy travel trailer and a 21 foot boat. Since 2005 I have always used Mobil 1 75/140 rear and 75-90 front. If you tow I would also change transfer case oil frequently as well. I have always used Mobil 1 ATF in that. In the trans I use J/S-Matic. Good Luck.

Garage
I have a 2011 SL (2WD).

Service manual says 75w90 for the rear diff so that's what I used. I changed it several months ago.
