manual transmission fluid for 1995 jeep wrangler Rio Grande

Greetings everyone, just joined the forum today. I have read many opinions regarding asto what is the best transmission fluid to use on my 1995 Jeep Wrangler Rio Grande 5spd/4CYLs? Anyone care to opine? I see where the GL-5 stuff can be corrosive over extended usage. Please advise at your leisure. Thany you in advance.

Working at a trans shop and going by part numbers you use 10w-30. It doesn't even need to be synthetic. EVERY ax-5 and ax-15 that is rebuilt/replaced by us get it. No complaints or comebacks. If you want further proof call your dealer and he'll sell you an overpriced bottle of 10w-30 :-)

I am coming into this string because my 95 wrangler with the 5 speed 4 cyc is getting hard to shift into first at a stop. I had all the fluids checked recently and the shop said they where all fine and the tranny uses the same fluid as the diff. I am now seeing that alot of folks are talking about using Penzoil Synchromesh oil or royal Purple 75w-90w...but I see this about using plain old 10w-30w engine oil. Any input on which to use?

95 jeep hard shifting

I have decided to change the gear oil to Red Line MT 90 since it is shown to be the best for these transmissions. If nothing really changes then I might look at the hydrolic system. Then only thing I have not looked at is if the slave cyclinder is outside the bell housing....is it? My old Toyota (1968 Corona) had the slave outside and you could adjust the rod to compensate for clutch wear. I read that this one is self adjusting.
Anyhow I will update when done with the changes
