stevens243 Don't forget ladies, if you use all the distilled water in your radiator, you'll have to run out and buy more for the iron

Its still good advice. Where I live the water has a high mineral content. I usually buy the 50/50 because it saves a second stop for distilled water.

jgano23 well, i usually get the straight anti-freeze and mix it myself. think of it this way, if you get the 50/50 you are paying for 50% water. i feel like i am getting ripped off with the 50/50. just mt .02 though.

distortedtj Good ol Green for the 99 is fine. The newer TJ's came with the orange crap. Your works great with the Green.

Don't use tap water if you get the straight antifreeze, Use distilled water ONLY.

KellyK i remember reading somewhere that there is a special antifreeze that jeeps like more. Am i way off base there?
12-22-2008 05:29 AM
Coyote_94YJ 4.0L = 10w-30 (6qts)
Tranny = 75w-90 (3.3qts)
T-Case = ATF (1.5-2qts)
Diffs = 75w-90 (Front 2.5 pints Rear 3.5 pints)
Radiator = 50/50 (10.5qts)

These quantities are a close estimate. The tranny, t-case, and both diffs should be filled till the fluid is level with the fill hole while the jeep is sitting on level ground.
