type of differential fluid

Just got a '97 Wrangler and want to do a complete tune-up. Looked all over and wasn't able to find out what type of fluid it will take. Can anyone help?

I use 80w90 in the front and 85w140 in the rear. If you dont do any towing or wheeling you could probally go with a lighter weight in the rear. I use dino oil also.
