NV247 TC fluid

Hey all, newbie here. I have a 99 JGC ltd. 4.7 w/NV 247 TC. I've heard and read that I can use Dexron 3 ($5/qt) in place of the Mopar recommendation ($14/qt). Is that true? Thanks in advance.

Re: NV247 TC fluid

Welcome to the garage.
I doubt that Dexron 3 can be used in the T-case. It probably will lubricate the T-case, but the special fluid is there to prevent clutch chatter inside the progressive coupler. When the WJ debuted in '99, the NV247 was filled with ATF+4, but due to the problems they encountered with the clutch chatter, they looked into other fluids. Mobil 424 was found to do the job well and was sold as the special Mopar NV247 fluid. I never heard that the Dexron 3 is compatible with Mobil 424.
