Make your own Gasket

Mobil 1 is fine for differentials and for the transfer case I have used it with no problems.

Transfer case holds 2 Quarts
Front differential holds 3.7 Pints (75w-90)
Rear differential holds 5.5 Pints (75w-140)
Also get 1 bottle of friction modifier for the rear differential

Whether or not Ford says to use synthetics fluids, they are usually considered to be of higher quality than "regular" fluids. If the synthetics are readily available, just use them.
