According to my 1998 service manual the NV231 Transfer Case recommended lubricant is Mopar Dexron II or ATF Plus and the approx fill capacity is 1.2 liters (2.5 pint)

Here you go for the tranny's.

AX-5 3.3 quarts
AX-15 3.25 quarts
NV-1500 4.8 pints
NV-3500 4.2 pints

But how do you know what tranny you got? I've got an 04 with manual so what would that be?

I don't run a manual so I don't pay as much attention to them, but I believe in 03 they started putting the NV3500 6-speed in all Wranglers. However I could be wrong on that.

The 6 speed did not come out until 05

Does he have the NV231?

You have the NV 3500. It's a 5 speed, the 6 speed is a Getrag transmission and didn't come out until the 2005 year model.

hey thanks for the replies. i decided to just get 6 quarts of fluid and i figure i can just take the unused back. atleast i know i have enough now. i got royal purple fluid for the whole drive train. i use it in my subaru and love it, can surprisingly tell a difference.

I use Redline MT-90 and it is suprising how much difference the fluid can make! All notchyness is gone!:D

Can you use the Redline in the NV3500? That "notchyness" drives me crazy.

You should be able to. It's designed for any tranny that uses gear oil.

I apologize for my earlier thread......about the NV231.......you all where talking transmissions, and I throw in a transfer case. Sorry about that.
