Re: Diff Fluids and Transfer case with Amsoil

Hi Chris, I just did all my fluids a couple months ago. I went for a short spin around the neighborhood before doing anything so it was slightly warmed up but not full operating temp and didn't have any troubles. I cheated on the rear diff with a pump to extract, the front diff and t-case have drain plugs. Loosen the fill plugs before you remove the drain plugs to make sure they're going to come off before you commit.

Thanks,
I did not know the front diff had a drain plug that will help. How many quarts did you you put in each diff ?

Re: Diff Fluids and Transfer case with Amsoil

4 quarts of oil is what it takes to do both front and rear (that's slightly more than you need) and for a QDII with ELS you will also need to also put 4 oz of mopar friction modifier in each diff.
www.wkjeeps.com has the capacities which will be close but not exact, you just fill until it starts oozing back out of the fill hole. It's very simple. I used Mobil 1 Synthetic Gear Lube LS 75W-140 ($45 for 4 qts.) and Mopar friction modifier ($14 for 2 / 4 oz. bottles).

At http://www.wkjeeps.com/ go to the "maintenance info & schedules" then "axles" for the capacities and friction modifier part number.

I did the transfer case with the suggested mopar fluid this time but I'm going to use Amsoil for everything on the next change, diff's, friction modifier & t-case. I have no worries about using Amsoil.
