The owners manual is not correct, by reason of omission. It does not specifically state ATF+4 for the NV245, it simply says "Transfer Case - ATF+4", which is for the NV140 only.
use ATF+4 for the NV-245 t-case!!!
The 2005 owners manuals have never been updated since being issued in 2004. But the dealer online factory service manuals are constantly updated in years following...
From the latest revision of the 2005 Jeep factory service manual:
- Recommended lubricant for the NV140 transfer case is Mopar® ATF+4, Automatic Transmission Fluid.
- Recommended lubricant for the NV245 transfer case is Mopar® NV245/247 Transfer Case Fluid (1.8L / 3.8 pts. / 1.9 quarts).
