Manual Trans Fluid Change Question
 
I have a 4" lifted '04 Rubicon with NV3500 5spd trans. I wan to check trans fluid level. The trans fluid level should be the bottom of fill plug when level, but trans is tilted up toward front of vehicle when vehicle is level. I need to lift rear wheeels until transmisson itself is level? Right?

if its not level it wonk make enough of a difference to matter, just make sure you use syncromesh fluid if you change it

Thank you
 
Makes sense, I'm not ready to replace but I have heard redline MT-90 and Redline's site says to use:MTL 70W80 GL-4
If I was to buy today think I would go MTL.
Any thoughts? I have heard both ways on the forum

For the older AX-5 or AX-15, use MT-90. For the newer NV3550 or NSG370, use MTL.
