Stock 3.8 doesn't have an M80. They just go by what's on the screen in front of them as typically 99% of the population doesn't swap out parts. If you're sure it's an M80, just plug a VX SS into Penrite's site and it will tell you what to buy. Will be a different oil if it's an LSD.

If it's a thrash mobile 80W-90 will be more than fine.

I run the same stuff in our VX with Truetrac/3.73 gears.

General rule of thumb is that if you haven't changed a part yourself, then it's stock. If you haven't changed that diff yourself then almost guaranteed it will be an M78/M75.
