Nope no gasket. You make a good point with the whole dropping the oil pan deal, but idk maybe it's just me liking to take shit apart and put it back together lol.

If you have QDII you still have to add the additive from the dealer... I've read guys that put just say Mobile 1 fluid in there that already has the limited slip additive in it already and got lots of binding.

I think the ELSD system is pretty sensitive in that regard.

Cool, what about the friction modifier does it need to be Mopar?

I wouldn't use anything else, but that is just me. There might be other fluids out there that will work, but I'll stick to a fluid that is known to work.

Eh, to me Mopar is just another brand name, like you can buy the Mopar shocks and struts or you can get the Bilsteins. Its just a product made by someone else slapped with Mopar on the box.

I agree to an extent. It is just I've read of people using non-mopar fluids in certain areas of the drivetrain and having issues with it. Namely, the additive for the ELSD and transfer case fluid.

Re: Axle oil change help.

Just saying "Mopar" isnt the only oil or oil additive out there that will work. If you take it in to a local non-Jeep shop im sure they do not use Mopar oils, but have other brands/manufacturers that work.

Its like buying 5W-30 oil, can get the cheapest Walmart brand or an expensive named brand, but if on the label it states its been tested and meets the same standards then there really is no reason to not use one or the other, they should perform the same. Some people just feel better buying named brand things that are priced higher because it gives them a sense of security.

Re: Axle oil change help.

I was thinking about changing the axle oil in the WJ, however i thought that this was a sealed compartment... And by using the synthetic gear oil why would it ever need to be serviced unless you are off roading/water fording and what not?

I would recommend going with the Mopar NV245 Transfer Case Fluid p/n 05016796AB. Its like 12 bucks. Now rememeber this is for the Quadratrac 2 systems as well as Quadradrive 2. You can also use a compatible fluid but i didnt look into any. I just know of the original stuff.

If you have a quadratrac 1 system then use regular ATF+4, type 9602.
