^^^ this

but to clarify, there should be TWO plugs... remove the TOP one and you might get a bit if fluid dribbling out... or stick a finger inside and JUST below the plug you should feel the fluid. if you get none dripping out or can't feel it on your finger, then you need to put more.... and like the above mentioned, the T-case takes ATF

There are two bolts in the back of it. Open the top one, mines like 32mm I think and see where the fluid is. It'd be a good time to drain and replace while you're there. If you decide against replacement just add more ATF until it comes out of the fill hole on level ground.

It may have HEX plugs. You will need to use a 1/2" (if I remember correctly) allan wrench to get them out. Same as above, undo the higher one.

There is a write-up in the FAQ about how and where and why and all that. I am pretty sure its 30mm but may be wrong... Either way, crawl under and look at the back of the TC for 2 hex shaped plugs. The top is to fill and the bottom to drain... and they are fairly close to each other.

Don't worry about checking to see if it full. Just change it. It only takes about 10-15 minutes. If you dont know how to do it, theres a great step by step instructions at the top of this list in the yj section in the how to section.

It's a 30mm like jaycal mentioned, fill it till it's full using the top spot.

Also it only holds 2.2 quarts of atf. It doesn't take much. I qould suggest just changing it. Its cheap peace of mind.
