4.0 I assume 4.2 would be the same:

engine oil 6 qt. 5.7 liters
cooling system 12 qt. 11.4 liters
AX-15 - 6.75 pints 3.15 liters GL5 75w-90
Front/Rear Axle 2.5 qt. 1.2 liters limited slip add Friction Modifier
Transfer case 3.3 pints 1.5 liters ATF Plus, Mercon or Dexron II

Now I use sys in my transmission (better shifting) and syn in my transfer case (longer life). Red Line is a good product but I use Mobil 1, with Royal purple in the transfer case.

If you use it always in Canada you might check into going lighter weight on oil.
