lubricant types!

snagged an 06 Rubicon and wanted to change all the fluids before it gets nice out, any specific brand? I use Mobil 1 for everything else i just don't know if there is something better.

Engine oil?

Diff/Axel oil?

Tranny oil?

Suggestions Please....

I don't believe Mobil-1 makes an actual transmission lube that is suitable for any of the transmissions in our Jeeps. Their 75W-90 is the type of GL-5 gear lube that is not safe for use in a manual transmission and while Mobil makes ATF+4 as the automatic requires, Mobil-1 does not have ATF+4 in their stable.

I use Penzoil synchromesh in my 5-speed, 10W-30 Castrol syntech blend in the engine.

In the Rubi factory diffs use 75W-140 full synthetic with no additives. I use Mobil 1.

I use MOPAR ATF-4 in the transfer case.

I just put mt90 in my transmission and redline atf in the transfer case.

The guy that dumped it all in (im not home to do my own work) said Chrysler updated the fluid teqs in 2004 the 10w30 for the ax5 and ax15. I refused. He maybe right but im scared of that

^^x2 on the RP synchromax. I just did my tranny and Amazon had the best price. And don't forget you'll need a bottle pump.

He was correct. Know that 10W-30 motor oil has essentially the same viscosity as 75W-90 gear lube. They are measured in two different viscosity scales. I'd rather run Redline MT-90 in those transmissions though.
