What type of gear oil do I need for my 1992 2wd Toyota pickup?
I was told by a friend (who might not know anything) that I need SAE 80W-90. My manual says to use the correct weight gear oil.....

Most differentials use 85W gear oil. Your manual should have a list of the specific fluids for your vehicle listed on a separate page from the generic instructions you quoted.

80W-90 sounds right

SAE 80W-90 is the standard differential gear lube used in most of the axles, sometimes you need to add a friction modifier with locking differentials. You will be fine with the standard SAE 80W-90 gear lube on that model as Toyota didn't have locking differentials. The 22R manual transmission takes SAE 75W-90, the axle differentials will take the standard SAE 80W-90 gear lube.

Ask Toyota they have the knowledge.
