Fluids and more fluids...

Other than "Mopar" fluids/oils, what equivalent can I grab from local places like Walmart, Advanced Auto, Sears, etc?

I have a manual 2004 Wrangler X I6.

Engine Oil - 10w30
Brake Fluid - Dot3
Differential Fluid - 80w90, GL-5
*still not sure if I have "Trac-Lok"

Manual Transmission Fluid - ??
Transfer Case Fluid - ??
Steering Fluid - ATF+4

Plan to change soon but not sure of specific type for a couple of these and if I'm missing others.

Steering and Transfer case both use the Chrysler ATF+4 spec....for this I use Castrol Full Synthetic ATF+4 Automatic Transmission Fluid... about $6 per quart.

Manual trans fluid...for this I only use the Mopar manual trans fluid that they specify. THis is something that is replaced completely once every one or two years and I have not some across anything that is suitable.
