    JEEP & LHS (although the LHS is only "front diff" & "trans")

    1. Transmission fluid= "7176" or "ATF+4"(or a "MVATF"=multi-vehicle trans fluid)

    2. Transfercase= Same as transmission

    3. Front & Rear differential= 80/90 (GL-5) Gear Lube & add 1 bottle of "Limited Slip Additive"/Rear only (you'll be sorry if you don't)


    Dexron 3-Trans only for this 1.

    Anything else?

    Baldie-Not trying to insult you, just inform you. It's "Dexron" (see links I posted) not "DexTron" & there isn't a "#4". Its skips from Dexron 3 to Dexron 6. NO! It can't be used on this vehicle!


    Trans=Dexron 3.

    Rear Diff.=80/90 (GL5) Gear Lube/same as Jeep & LHS. This rear diff doesn't need the "Limited Slip Additive", ONLY the Jeep Rear Diff.

    Anything Else? lol

    Again, check the owners manual. I would be especially careful to use the exact specified trans fluid for the Jeep as some sources - lube guys, parts houses, dealer service advisors - do not understand Jeep used different transmissions and offered them from sources outside Chrysler. In short, they may not take ATF, but Dexron, and a substitution will cause problems.

    Research it thoroughly from a written source to be accurate.

    The Owner's Manual tells you which one. If you can come in the computer and wrote this question you should got an answer by reading the book.

    Right ?

    either dextron 3 or 4 will work and as for the front differencial and back, you can use 90 weight gear oil, what i use to use was coastal. it reads on the bottle, (80,85,90 weight gear oil)its for all kinds of gear driven differencials.
