Questions about fluid levels on 1987 wrangler. Help!

Is the transmission and transfer case areas where you check the fluid levels easily noticeable for me to spot? The rear axle location on mine is on the lower backside. It must not have to have much fluid in it cause it's located roughly 2 1/2 inches from the bottom. Also, do you check these other two locations the same way as the rear end(sticking your finger in it and if you feel fluid it's ok? Mine is a 5 speed manual. Sorry for sounding like i don't know anything but better to be safe than sorry, right? Thanks!!

Yes the fluid level for the axles, t-case and transmission are checked all the same way. They should all be filled level to the bottom of the fill holes.

when i check the tranny and t-case on my cj, i remove the fill plug and if a little fluid leaks out or is at the level of the plug it is ok.

What kind of fluid do you put in the transmission, transfer case, and rear end?

b/c your yj is a 1987 it should have the NP207 t-case and BA-10/5 Transmission.

the NP207 calls for ATF (Dextron III)
the BA-10/5 calls for 2.75 qts of 80 weight or Redline MT90
dana 30 front diff: approx 2 qts 75W90
dana 35 rear diff: approx 2 qts 75W90
