How many bottles per Axle?

Hi guys, I am changing my QT1 axle fluids at 51k miles but I don't know how many bottles of this Royal Purple I need per axle. The manual doesn't state quantity only 75W-140. Every bottle is about $20 and don't want to waste any. I know you have to fill the axle but will one bottle be enough for this or will it take more than one per side?

use this site. Jeep Grand Cherokee WK2 - Maintenance information and schedulesJust over 1 qt per axle. 1.2 for the front and anywhere from 1.2 - 1.5 for the rear depending on which differential you have. FYI the recommended weight is actually 75W-85. I believe this was a typo in the original manuals with regards to the 75W-140
