Royal Purple Synchromax which is a synthetic is fine. For a less costly non-synthetic that still meets your tranny's specifications, Synchromesh by either Pennzoil or GM is fine too. And a big welcome to WF!

Redline's MTL and MT-90 tranny lubes are very good in the older AX-5 and AX-15 transmissions and is what I ran when I had an AX-15 tranny in my TJ. Unfortunately, neither meets the specs for any of the newer manual transmissions.
