Diff and Transfer case identification

I am getting a used 2007 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited X next week and was wondering if anybody could please give me some insight on how to identify what type of transfer case and diffs I may have. Also, I spoke to Royal Purple and they said that using any other fluids besides what Jeep sells would void my warranty. I have never heard of this but I could see car manufacturer doing this to boost their maintenance sales. I do not know what this jeep has been through so I am going to change all fluids; both diffs, oil, transfer, tranny, etc. Any information will be appreciated.

It should have the Command-Trac NV241 t-case and a D30 front axle and D44 rear axle.

Post pics when you get it!

Royal Purple is blowing smoke, that's simply not true. What the warranty says is that you need to follow the instructions in your Owners Manual to keep the warranty effective. Notice where it reads "or equivalent".

Not necessarily a Dana 44 in the rear. Although most people got them, many JK's still got a Dana 35 until it was sort of phased away. Hopefully he got a 44, but there's no way to tell without actually seeing it or the build sheet.

I have a 07 Wrangler X and wanted the same info. So I go the vin# and called the Jeep customer service number in the manual. They gave me all of the info needed, just give them a call. Mine was built in March 07 and it came w/ a dana 44 on the rear and a 30 next gen on front. 410 gears as well.
