This may be old news, but I just discovered it.
Changing gear and TC oil in these Rovers has always been a royal pain. The quart containers are too rigid. Or you can invest in 5 gallons worth and a big pump.

Enter the Valvoline gear oil bags. I changed the rear diff oil in my Sequoia today and used 4 of these bags. It was incredible how easy it was. Just stick the tip in and squeeze. No more waste, combining containers, or struggling to get the bottle in a weird spot.

LOL, it's been about 2 years since I've had to do any gear oil work on anything, and I swear I didn't see these then. Sadly I don't have any time right now to invest in the old 94 to bring it back into shape.

LOL. Sorry man, you tee’d up that joke perfectly so I had to take a swing!

Used these last week. What an improvement. The diffs are especially tricky to get to on the LR3 and it was a breeze with these. Surprised Valvoline synthetic seems to be the only brand with them

I think Amsoil has been doing them in bags like this for a while now.
