what tranny/transfer fluid to use 4.0

I just bought a 93 jeep with the 4.0 and 5 speed. I guess it has the apx15 in it. i want to change my fluid in both and not sure what to buy. I heard 10w30 10w40 for tranny and gear oil. And not sure about the transfer case. Is synthetic better than standard? Is deisel oil better than gas oil.

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

It depends on your conditions & preference in my opinion.

Here in swampy South Florida, water intrusion is a fact of life & happens with almost every outing. Subsequently the fluids are changed often due to the water & not because of their service life.

In drier conditions where water isn't a consideration, higher quality fluids may be preferred.
