NSG 370 Transmission Fluid?

So changing out the fluid during a clutch replacement, and noticed the transmission fluid was kind of thin. I call the dealership telling them i was trying to obtain fluid, and asking what type it was. They said it was NSG 370, and not to use any other type. It doesn't seem odd they would say i have to use their brand, but it does seems odd to me they would use such a thin fluid. Any ideas on this, should i replace to factory specs? Should i use your standard transmission fluid? Royal Purple. Looking for the know how out there. Thanks!

I have the NV3550, and I use Amsoil.
Here's a search from an 05 4.0, you can change the vehicle specs if needed

I have the NSG 370 6-speed in my 05 LJ. I run Amsoil Synchromesh. No problems, smoother shifting than the factory fluid.

Ya, compared to old, heavy-duty transmissions, these NSG 370s run a thin fluid.
Do not attempt to run a thicker fluid.

I appreciate the heads up! I was going to buy from the stealer ship, but they are charging me 22 bucks for it

Redline MTL, Royal Purple Synchromax, and Amsoil Synchromesh are all good choices for the NV3550 and NSG370.

So I just picked up 3 qts of tranny fluid from my dealer and it says nsg 370/nv 3500 on it and they're unfortunately closed in the parts dept for the weekend and this was the fluid they said I needed but its used for six speeds right? I need to know before I use it if its safe. I have a 03 wrangler 2.4 5 Spd transmission

That gear lube is what you want for your NV1500 transmission as well. The NV3550, NV1500, and NSG370 all require the same type of gear lube.
