Filters are pretty basic and similar. I have bought Mopar branded filters from a dealer and they are the EXACT same ones bought from Autozone or other places.

For fluid, Chrysler trannys only really like ATF+4. Any +4 that is Chrysler certified is already a full synthetic and a very high quality fluid.

Try starting it up in Neutral when it has been parked for an extended period of time, and see if the condition is still present.

For the transfer case, you have a NP 231. How many miles are on your Jeep?
