Some delicious fluids......

Good afternoon guys,

2002 Sahara, 5spd, 4.0, 85,000 miles

i am still new to the jeep world and am trying to learn all i can.

I have noticed this to be a tender question but i would like some help on deciding which fluids to use....

Ive owned my jeep for going on 3 or 4 months, when i picked it up it was desperately in need of an oil change. I filled changed it with 10/30 mobil 1 synthetic. (lets not get started on the synthetic vs conventional argument).

i havent even looked at my differentials yet but this weekend i am going to be changing the fluid...... any recommendations?

i also will be changing the tranny fluid and transfer case... any recommendations again?


noob question.... which tranny and transfer case are in my jeep, and for confirmation the differentials are d30 in the front and d35 in the rear.... correct?

thanks again!


stay thirsty my friends.
