Ready for another question???

I am trying to figure out as much as I can with this zj. I am the type that has to have all the info I can. Planning on changing all fluids as I have no idea when the previous owners have done so. My dilemma. Haynes manual leaves a lot of blanks to be filled.
I have determined the transfer case is indeed 249.( Quadra - trac ) I assume
However the plates on the differentials tell me nothing as in the manual they list models 35, 194, 216, 198, and 216.
How do I determine which model is under my feet right now?
Front is the same. Numbers don't jive.
I know this is an easy answer for seasoned jeep vets, unfortunately I am just beginning this adventure.

rears a D35, fronts a D30.
if you have all wheel drive you've got the np 249 correct.
you can use regular 80w90 in the diffs. and ATF3 or better in transfer case.
