Quadra Trac transfer case fluid?

Before I go placing an order online...Is there a fluid I can use that's fairly common at auto parts stores?
Thanks!

I believe the quadra-trac transfer case uses regular ATF, same that goes in the transmission....its the quadra-drive transfer case that required an additive due to the clutch packs....the quadra-trac transfer case used a viscous coupler which was self-contained and had its own fluid it wasn't lubricated by the ATF in the case, so just regular ATF.

CJ's ran the original quadratrac BW 1305/1339 and it uses a cone style LS diff.

3qt 30WT non detergent oil and 8oz GM friction lube (Ford friction lube would probably work as well). Should take about 2 quarts to do the lower end and 1/2 quart for the reduction unit.

you can run ATF if you have the part time conversion.

Good point, didn't think about the original "quadra-trac", I was thinking the newer versions found in the ZJ's and i think WJ's had a similar system before they went to the 247 that has clutch packs.

HAHA, no I didn't realize it was in the CJ forum. Although I didn't know the CJ's had quadra-trac I always assumed they were all part time 4WD systems....always learn new stuff. Thanks.
