Diff and transfer case fluid change please advise

OK so I'm doing my diff's and transfer cases. I got correct fluid and located drain and fill holes. I've done these services before and were easy on my Ram. My question what method or pump are you guys using to fill them? They in tough spots to get bottle up there. The TC is atf so that flows easy. But the 75w140 oil is way thicker.
Thanks for info


Edit.for non elsd diff's 2011 manual edition 5 states 75w140 but 7th edition manual states 75w85 in which case I'll use 75w90 as readily available. Which should I use. Dealers can't seem to tell me.

I too have had a tough time getting an answer from Chrysler about what the correct weight is for the front diff. The manual says 75w140 but I have read that is wrong. Called Chrysler and they really couldn't give me a straight answer. I heard that the newer manuals have the correct weight but Chrysler never sent an update to owners with the wrong weight printed in them.

Amsoil.com

You put in the vehicle info and get the list of all fluids.
Just did mine this weekend, easier than an oil change.
