How do you know what kind of diff you have?
We bought a 96 grand a little while ago and was wondering how do you tell what kind of diff is in the back. I want change all the oils (diffs, transfer case etc) in this thing but on the rear it says to put in the additive if it has a certain diff. Also is their anything special about the atf listed in the owners manual? Or can i use an aftermarket fluid?
My 94 calls for 75W-90 weight oil. If you are lucky, jeeps have an identification tag which is held on by the pumpkin pan bolts. It will state the part number & gear ratio. A second ID tag is supplied if the Diff has Trac-loc (lmited slip) option.

Here is a easy way to see if you have the Dana 44 Aluminum in the back, See if the housing is rusting at all, or just scrape the bottom of the pumpkin and wait a day or two and see if it starts to rust. If it doesn't rust it is the aluminum dana 44.
