Which transmission do I have?

Hello.
I have a 2000 TJ with a 4.0 six cylinder. It has a 5 speed manual transmission. Do they all have a NV3550, or could mine be another type transmission? I want to know how to tell which one I have, so that I can get the correct fluid for a change.

Yes yours is the NV3550. Redline MTL, Royal Purple Synchromax, and Amsoil Synchromesh are three good synthetic lubes that work well in it.

Thanks Jerry. My owners manual specifies that I should only use Mopar fluid part number 4874464. What are your thoughts on that?

Just did the Redline MTL in my sons 2000 TJ and man what an improvement. The mopar fluid is cheap crap. Worth every penny for the Redline MTL. It will make a believer out of you.
