35, 30 fluid capacity

I was wondering how much fluid the dana 35 and 30 holds. I cant find the specs any where. I appreciate it.

Taken directly from the YJ FAQ (frequently asked questions):

What fluids do I use and how much do I put in my Jeep?
- Gear oil - 80 weight for light duty and normally cooler climates - 90w120 weight for heavy duty and normally warmer climates Note: Some rear axles are equiped with factory posi - a limited slip additive must be put in with the gear oil to extend and protect the limited slip action
Dana 30 = 2.5 pints
Dana 35 = 3.5 pints
Dana 44 = 4.0 pints

- 10w30 for good general usage in most climates
- 5w30 for those colder climates (when temps are below freezing for extended periods of time)
2.5L = 4 quarts (w/ filter)
4.0L = 6 quarts (w/ filter)
4.2L = 6 quarts (w/ filter)

*Transmission (standard):
- 80 weight gear oil but most recoment Redline MT 90 to protect the interals better. 75W90 is listed by some but the 80W is just cheaper to find with no ill effects.
AX-5 = 3.3 quarts
AX-15 = 3.25 quarts
BA-10/5 = 2.45 quarts

*Transmission (automatic):
- Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) Dexron III
TF 904 = 4 quarts
TF 999 = 4 quarts

*Transfer case:
- Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) Dexron III
231 = 2.2 pints
