Tranny fluid

I have a 2001 tj wrangler sport 4.0l I had to do a frame swap and I'm finally got it all back together. Does anybody know how many quarts of tranny fluid it takes?

Assuming your transmission is the 5-speed, it holds around 2 quarts of gear lube. Redline MTL would be a good choice for your NV3550 transmission.

I have the 32RH transmission automatic. The torque converter fluid was drained too so how much in total will I need?

Make sure to only use ATF+4. If it doesn't say ATF+4 in big letters on the front of the bottle it's the wrong stuff.

Deleted my response, as I hadn't seen your f-u post about having the 32RH Auto tranny, prior to posting.

Move along, nothing to see here...

I thought synchromesh was the lube of choice for the 3550????

I'm no fan of Synchromesh from Pennzoil or GM. Not many give it high marks in their NV3550 or NSG370. Not to mention it's not a synthetic and the recommended Redline MTL is a full synthetic which means it'll shift a lot better in cold conditions.
