Lund two of fluid changes, the transmission. Wow, what a piece of cake. Went with locally available Pennzoil Synchromesh. My question, the fluid that was in my trans was bright red, as in identical to the aft+4 I'm getting ready to change in the transfer case. Are the synthetic oils like royal purple and red line mtl red in color or more honey colored like the synchromesh?

Thx. Great day wrenching!

Redline MTL & MT-90 is honey-colored. The PO could have erroneously used ATF in your transmission. He might have read how ATF was at one time used (tried) in manual transmissions until they determined ATF doesn't have the shear strength needed for gears.

Awesome, thanks again Jerry. Taking the TJ on its first extended trip in a few weeks to KY for the Land Between the Lakes Jambo and wanted to have everything fresh for the trip.
