I however like ATF now that should cause some people to get their knickers in a twist.

Conventional 10w-30 is the new spec for the AX-15. I use the cheap stuff from Wal-Mart.
Here's why I use 10W-30 motor oil in my AX-15.
The Mopar gear oil part number used to be 4897622aa, but when you search that part number you'll see it has been superceded by part number 4761839AC which comes up as 10w-30 motor oil. Here's a link to search the Mopar part numbers.
Based on that, I use 10w-30 motor oil. I buy the Wal-Mart "Super Tech" store brand oil because it's cheap, meets all the API (American Petroleum Institute) grade qualifications and I change mine often, at least every 6 to 12 months.
Here's a link to the Jeep Engineers Q&A thread here on JF where I questioned the Jeep factory engineers on this very thing.
I'll be doing that this weekend. How do the transfer case knob and manual shifter come off? It appears from your picture that the shifter unscrews pretty far below the knob?

I hate to be "that guy" but I was told that motor oil does some sort of damage to the brass components in the AX 15? Guess I was wrong but I just wanted to throw that out there so I could find the right answer. Also, I live up in the land of ice and snow (new york) should I use something thinner because of the cold winters?
