P/S Fluid Questions - MS5931?
Read this on WJJeeps:
I didn't know this when I first got my Jeep and I'm pretty sure I topped it off with ATF+4. Am I screwed? I haven't had any issues at all and it's been about a year and a half. Do you all adhere to this pretty well? Any experience deviating from this? Where is the best place to buy MS5931?

What Uni said isn't a bad idea to do on a regular basis, as it keeps the gear and the pump in better shape. The fluid has a pretty good affinity for moisture and that ain't good for cast and machined parts. Breaking a gear down shows this. Mine had rusty looking gunk all in it.
