Transfer/tranny fluid exchange question

Hi all,

I put new u-joints and painted my skid plate recently and decided to drain/fill my transfer case and tranny. However, after draining and filling both components, I noticed that they only took half of the recommended fluid. I was wondering if anyone has run into this before. I filled each component until the fluid was coming out of the fill hole and rechecked each after letting it settle. I figured I would check in with everybody before putting the skid plate back on. Any suggestions are appreciated...

Thanks,
John

Just figured it out...it is a user error because I am a dummy I was using quart bottles and since 2 pints equal 1 quart...I am good... Oops
