According to my 1998 service manual the NV231 Transfer Case recommended lubricant is Mopar Dexron II or ATF Plus and the approx fill capacity is 1.2 liters (2.5 pint)

I don't run a manual so I don't pay as much attention to them, but I believe in 03 they started putting the NV3500 6-speed in all Wranglers. However I could be wrong on that.

The 6 speed did not come out until 05

Does he have the NV231?

You have the NV 3500. It's a 5 speed, the 6 speed is a Getrag transmission and didn't come out until the 2005 year model.

I use Redline MT-90 and it is suprising how much difference the fluid can make! All notchyness is gone!

Can you use the Redline in the NV3500? That "notchyness" drives me crazy.

You should be able to. It's designed for any tranny that uses gear oil.
