2013 WK2 Overland 5.7 Power Steering Pump "Whine / Moan / Growl"

So our power steering pump started whining lately. I started researching the issue and am now unsure what the correct power steering fluid I'm supposed to be using. The stuff that's in the reservoir is red and the stuff that the dealer gave me is clear (they looked up my VIN)

I found that some V6 models have an electric pump for power steering and requires a different fluid. I'm curious now what is what. Any ideas?

The part # on the bottle the Dealer gave me is 68234631AA called simply Mopar Hydraulic System Power Steering Fluid.

Just want to update that the power steering fluid that the dealer had sold me was incorrect. I recently just got reimbursed for it (lol months later... I know, I'm lazy). The manager in the parts department was even confused for about 5 minutes until he understood the information on his POS system. Mopar should fix this....

Anyway, the correct fluid for our vehicle is Power Steering Fluid +4 (pink in color, not yellow). They flushed the system and the whining sound is gone.
