tranny gear oil question

I have a 93 ax-15, and was wondering what is the proper oil for the transmission. GL 3, 4, and 5 has been thrown out there. 75 90? i have read that gl5 can hurt the brass. I herd redline was the best, but was wanting something i could purchase locally, auto zone, o rileys or advance. any suggestions? and does the GL 5 really hurt the brass? thanks John

That's why Chrysler now recommends. Shifts like butter.

Anyway before that I was using what my old Haynes manual suggested which was 75W-90 gear oil.

I usually buy the cheap stuff that is ASE certified. My jeep has 295K miles and I only do routine maintenance. I'm sure the expensive stuff is great and so is synthetic but what I have has been working just fine. I think lubricant brands/types are purely personal preference. But that's just me.

There is no situation that cannot be improved with a small but well-placed explosive.
