I have an 03 I6 4.0 Cherokee Laredo and its ready for a Differential fluid change... But I'm a bit confused as to which gear oil to use and where to buy them? It also says I need a friction modifier (4oz), no biggie, but where do you get it?

Any links to specs / online stores would be great.

Thanks

I'd look at Redline Oil - 75W140 gear oil. It doesn't require the additive. If you end up going with something else, your local parts store should have the additive you need. If you have trouble finding Redline, you can buy it at http://summitracing.com/

Thanks guys!

Will I need a hand pump, or is there enough room under there... Last time I changed this was 10 or so years ago on my old CJ-7. The cherokee doesnt look so spacious..

Any links to get one online?

...great forum, thanks!

Not the best photo, but this is what I use. I can't even remember where I got it, but Napa or similar should have something like it.

AMSOIL makes some great stuff for the rear it will make it geaqrs slippery and quiet them down as well. I am a dealer or go to amsoil.com my email is windrider@surfglobal.net I will need you to email me and I will order it you pay with your card. All orders usually ship from the warehouse some dealers carry it in stock.
