At the auto parts store, you really only have 2 options.. the "regular" 80w-90, and the "synthetic" 75w-something. I believe the manual states to use synthetic (and that's what I use). Also, the Rubicon uses an actual locker, not "limited slip", so you do NOT need to add the additive for "limited slip diffs".
