Changing all the fluids this weekend anybody have any fluid recomendations?

Sealing up everything that was leaking on the Jeep this weekend when I bought it a couple weeks ago. I'm doing the valve cover, rear main, and oil pan. Plus front and rear diff and the transfer case, probably the transmission as well. Mainly I wanna know what type of gear oil people are running in in the diffs? Plus fluid for the trans and the transfer case. I'm a tech at a Chevy store here so I have basically free reign of most of the GM fluids, will those work? What about royal purple?

Thanks

when you say youre "sealing up everything" what exactly does that mean?

diffs- any good 90 weight Dino Juice

t-case - ATF +3 or +4

tranny - Redline MT-90

engine - valvoline maxlife (... but not super thrilled that they switched to the "synthetic blend" as the only option) also i throw in a quart of lucas oil stabililzer fluid. BUT im sure you will here flak about that !!

ya, diffs are 80w90, plane jane. no need for anything else. t case any atf is fine, not picky

i see no need for anything special really. i use maxlife engine oil also.

manual trans is gear oil also, auto is atf+4, that is required in the auto

The oil pan, valve cover, and rear main are all leaking oil. The rear diff cover is leaking fluid. The transfer case output shaft seal is leaking onto the driveshaft causing it to fling fluid all over the place. The front diff is fine and the manual trans are both fine just changing those since I'll be there anyway.

Cool so I won't need to make any trips to the parts store looking for fluid, I can just run with the bulk stuff we have at work.
