I'm not trying hijack your thread but I was told in my 97 tj I was supposed to use gear oil is that right. Just want to make sure before I get to it this weekend.

No, ATF. Any ATF will be fine.

Hi.. fluid going to be synthetic or standard??
Transfer case, synthetic, completly empty transfer case dispose of properly, installl new fluid operate for 1 hour or days wheeling, drain and refill with synthetic, this operation cleaned all old fluid and put it in suspension, replaced with new and joined the ranks of the confident wheelers. I am running synthetic in all my reservoirs, brakes, transer, engine, diffs. Have fun, stay clean..

It took a D/C tech 15 min to convince me to put ATF in my t/c and gear oil in my tranny (5 spd). Who'da thunk it?

1. remove fill plug on t-case
2. remove drain plug on t-case
3. allow the red fluid (atf) to drain into a suitable container for disposal. Since it is red, pretend it is the Jeep's blood.
4. replace the drain plug on tcase.
5. use a hand pump (>$10 at parts store) to pump it full of ATF Dex II until it comes out the bottom of the fill plug and levels off (about 1.2 quarts +/-)
6. replace the fill plug.
7. Use a grease gun with a needle fitting to lubricate the shifting linkages, if desired.
8. Have a beer, but not before taking the Jeep on a test drive!

Not to hijack, but I've seen some threads say use ATF +4 in the T/C, but the book says dex III. Does it matter for the T/C?

The NP231 transfer cases are not that sensitive so either fluid will work fine. I use Dexron III just because thats the same fluid for my tranny so it makes it easy. I also run synthetic in the transfer case, just because that sucker gets hot.
