4.7/5.7 will have the NV245 transfer case and 545RFE transmission
Your transfer case is an NV140 single speed and the transmission will be NAG1/5WA580/5WJ400 They are physically different , but the work process to change the fluid is identical .
Your transfer case and transmission both take ATF +4 .
Use your VIN on line and get a build sheet for your jeep , then get a service manual , both free .
good luck .

Checked out the main jeep site and found the info.

On another note I pulled the trigger on the 2" RC lift, should be here Friday. Probably get all my fluids checked/changed this weekend as well.

glad you got all the info you need and welcome to jeep. something to note if you take the xk in to get the trans done is you may (or more than likely do NOT ) have a transmission dipstick , so IMO i would tell the shop to measure what they take out and put the same amount back in . ATF+4 and only ATF+4 , and they should only put in what they take out , not how much the computer tells them to put in .This trans is sensitive to fluid levels , so if it's driving good , then personally i wouldn't adjust .
good luck

I have a XK too but since it's identical (mechanically) to the WK I just use that link.
Saw on the side your from jefferson township. If I'm thinking of the right jefferson township, Pa I believe your're only about 30-45 mins from York?

Well my 2" RC lift will be here tomorrow according to the tracking number. Are these hard to put on by yourself? Never did any thing like this. Just wondering if I can do it myself or take it somewhere.
